When Steve McIntyre asked for the full data, she refused. Gergis has an activist past which she has recently tried to hide. She was proud to mention in her biography that her data has been requested from 16 nations: So requests from Tunisia, Cuba, and Brazil are OK; but Canada — not so much. Apparently she didn’t appreciate his expertise with statistics and told him to get the data himself from the original authors, and added ” This is commonly referred to as ‘research’. We will not be entertaining any further correspondence on the matter. “
That's the same response Mann, Steig, Jones and Santer gave.
“Why should I make the data available to you, when your aim is to try and find something wrong with it?”
Why would anyone want to send their hard earned data to a blogger who is well known to have shown no interest in advancing the science and every interest in using his blog to cast unreasonable doubt about the state of climatology and to publicly embarrass or impugn the integrity and professionalism of the leading scientists in the field? His use of sleazy innuendo and statistical sophistry has not ingratiated him with the scientific community. There are plenty of qualified, objective and civil colleagues to review papers.
And the Mann et al data on the N.H. hockey stick is downloadable by anyone that wants it - even jackasses. As for the Gergis paper, it has been withdrawn so of course the data won't be public at least until errors have been corrected and the paper has been republished.
