>Hmmm. My Comment Got Deleted At Tamino’s “Not So” Open Mind

>Occasionally I will run a google blog search of my name to see who’s writing what about one of my posts. And when someone misses a point or misrepresents something, I reply. This morning I found that a commenter at Tamino’s Open Mind had referred to one. It was in the thread of Tamino’s post Odd Man Out, by blogger Same Ordinary Fool at December 17, 2010 at 9:51 pm.

I copied my reply before it was deleted during moderation. It follows.

Same Ordinary Fool : About Anthony’s title “’Tisdale K.O.e’s GISS’s latest ‘warmest-year nonsense’”, you wrote, “Presumably the title refers to what was also Steve Goddard’s favorite objection, and what is only briefly mentioned here:
“‘GISS deletes SST data from areas with seasonal sea ice and extends land surface data out over the oceans (Arctic and Southern) with its 1200km radius smoothing.’”

The title was a play on words. My post was about the Kiroshio-Oyashio Extension, a.k.a. KOE.

Also, Steve Goddard’s objection was the GISS 1200km radius smoothing in general. I wrote the post about the GISS deletion of SST data:
WUWT co-post is here:


I wonder what it was Tamino didn’t like in that reply. It’s the truth. I wrote the post about GISS Deleting Arctic And Southern Ocean Sea Surface Temperature Data. And GISS does delete it. The Arctic and Southern Ocean SST data exists in the source Reynolds OI.v2 SST data, but parts of it are not present in the GISS LOTI product.

Anthony Watts cross posted my post The ENSO-Related Variations In Kuroshio-Oyashio Extension (KOE) SST Anomalies And Their Impact On Northern Hemisphere Temperatures, and came up with the play-on-words title of Tisdale K.O.e’s GISS’s latest “warmest-year nonsense”.

And Steve Goddard at his new blog Real Science has continued with his posts about GISS. Apparently, Steve does not like anything about the GISS surface temperature products.
