Global warming is a computer error

A science article that appears today [01/27/05] in Geophysical Research Letters casts serious doubt on the oft-cited claim that global temperatures are warmer now than they have been anytime in the last 1,000 years.
A preview of the Geophysical Review story is at Tech Station Central.

The GR Letters article was written by Steven McIntyre and Ross McKitrick, who demonstrated that the model, which was the centerpiece of the Third Assessment Report of the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 2001, shows a rapid global warming hocky stick, when lists of random numbers were used to represent the temperature data.

The UN reported rapid global warming in 2001 is just a computer error!
