Don Easterbrook’s Academic Dishonesty - Hot Topic

Gareth Renowden Jan 15, 2011

As Don Easterbrook has shown no signs of withdrawing his article claiming that most of the last 10,000 years were warmer than present, and as his university has shown no appetite for addressing the issue, Professor Scott Mandia of the Climate Science Rapid Response Team and I decided to write to the local press. The [...] … Read More

Easterbrook’s wrong (again) - Hot Topic

Gareth Renowden Jan 04, 2011

Over the holiday period I’ve had a number of people point me at the latest “essay” by Don “Cooling-gate” Easterbrook — it was featured in full at µWatts, translated into German and Dutch, and made headline material for Morano: Geologist: 9,099 Of Last 10,500 Years Warmer Than 2010.

Whose lie is it anyway? Easterbrook caught red-handed - Hot Topic

Gareth Renowden May 30, 2010

Don Easterbrook was forthright in his attempt to rebut my discovery that he had used an edited version of a graph of Holocene temperatures originally prepared by Global Warming Art in his recent Heartland conference presentation. He accused me of telling a “dispicable” lie, amongst other things: The charge by ‘the truffle grower’ that I [...] … Read More

Cooling-gate: the 100 years of warming Easterbrook wants you to ignore - Hot Topic

Gareth Renowden May 27, 2010

Evidence that Don Easterbrook did more than misrepresent and alter a graph in order to remove evidence of recent warming in his presentation to the recent Heartland “climate conference” is beginning to emerge. It now appears that he has been misusing one of the most important paleoclimate temperature data series, compiled from the GISP2 Greenland [...] … Read More
