Climate Denial and Russian Climate Data

The latest canard from the climate denial community, apparently hoping to build a head of steam after “Climategate,” is that the Hadley Centre in the UK has been suppressing Russian climatic data, an allegation originally made by the Moscow-based Institute of Economic Analysis.  An excellent response can be found on Tim Lambert’s blog. The most interesting aspect of the post is that if one drops the allegedly suppressed Russian data on top of the University of East Anglia’s CRU’s data, you get an excellent fit. So, if the denialists think the Russian data is the gold standard, then they’re now embracing CRU’s results also, and there goes Climategate.
