“Who Turned on the Heat?” Typos


I hate typos, because they’re invisible to an author.   Please let me know if you find additional ones.

Page 27 of text, line 7:  “eastward” should be “westward”.

Page 10 of text, last line: “could care less” should be “couldn’t care less”.  (Most persons in the U.S. would not notice or be concerned about the difference, but I was reminded there is one.)

Page 86 of the text, first sentence of last paragraph:   “during” should not be there.  The sentence should read:

Like the HADSST2 data, the ERSST.v3b sea surface temperature dataset only relies on measurements from ships and buoys during.

    Bob, will you be releasing a corrected version to those of us who have purchased the full document?

  3. Bob Tisdale says:

    @sceptic_tank, I hadn’t planned on reissuing it. If you’re wondering: I haven’t made the corrections and reposted the book. There may be more typos–and there may not. It’s too early to tell.

    Also, redistributing a corrected version presents hurdles. I could post it through a blind link at my website, but then if one of the buyers was unethical, he or she could post the link on a website somewhere or forward the link to everyone on his or her email list, who then forward to the link to their friends, etc.

    Last, I find typos in almost every novel I read. Back in the days when editors edited there were few typos–now you find them all the time. Basically, I’m providing an additional service with this post by letting readers know there are typos and where they are, so you’re a step ahead.
