Interesting recent article. One more nail in the coffin of the "Settled Science" Al Bore won a Oscar, oops, a Nobel Prize for.

A Response to Skeptical Science’s “Patrick Michaels: Serial Deleter of Inconvenient Data”

"This is—yet another—explanation in the refereed literature to apologize for recent climate misbehavior. Others include changes in the sun, cruddy air from China, and a change in stratospheric water vapor.
The last one is especially interesting because that, too, is a previously unknown forcing on climate, i.e. another bullet shot at “settled science”.
Then there’s the new icing on the global warming cake. Data from 2003 through 2010 from the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) satellite show virtually zero net melting from the massive Himalayan ice cap, the world’s “third pole”. The UN, using an unrefereed publication from the World Wildlife Federation, erroneously forecast in its last climate compendium that it would be gone by 2035. In reality, it will last hundreds of years, and even longer if the current trends reflect how the ice cap reacts to warming."
