THE TYPOS HAVE BEEN CORRECTED AND THE 2nd EDITION HAS BEEN PUBLISHED. Emails were forwarded to everyone who purchased a copy so they could download the 2nd edition.
I am going to correct the typos in my book Who Turned on the Heat? Those who have already purchased a copy will be sent a link, which will allow you to download the updated/corrected version for free. Yup, something for free. I’ll prepare a post that advises readers that the updates has been made, so you can check your email inboxes and spam filters. The file name will start with v2… Hopefully, that way you won’t have trouble with having to overwrite the existing book, but you may want to delete the old version anyway. So far, only a few typos have been identified. These include: 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. And Page 365, Figure 5-43: the year 1912 in the red notation should read 1917. DO YOU KNOW OF ANY MORE TYPOS? Please advise me as soon as possible. I’d like to upload the corrections on Monday, November 12, 2012.
