Climate skeptics eat more of their own.

Climate skeptics conducted their own independent analysis on warming trends that have ben disputed by deniers and skeptics and used as fodder in the “debate” about climate science rigor and accuracy.
The point of contention in this case was the integrity of warming data supplied by instruments on earth located in or near urban areas: what’s been called the “urban heat island” effect, or synthetic warming detected at stations in cities.
Well, apparently the “bad” data was negligible, and original scientific work was commendable after all.
“Our biggest surprise was that the new results agreed so closely with the warming values published previously by other teams in the US and the UK,” said Richard Muller. “This confirms that these studies were done carefully and the potential biases identified by climate change skeptics did not seriously affect their conclusions.”
