“If he wants to abuse statistical data for political purposes, that is his decision. But it surely destroys his reputation as a scientist.”
What other falsehoods does Holthaus spread, with an obligatory free pass from the warmist mainstream media? The sad story of post-modern, activist “climate science”.
