    I am not a climate scientist but it seems to me that an easy way to shut down all the discussion by skeptics. Dr. Mann and Dr. Schmidt may be completely correct or completely wrong, but if they are right, then why not just force the deniers to admit that they are by doing two things?

    First, publicly post all the raw data, processes, procedures, and algorithms used to reach their conclusions? Once everyone can check the data and math, there will be nothing to argue over.

    Second, do additional testing to show that the long term proxies actually capture the temperature record. Pretty much this is easy to do too. Go back to the tree ring site originally used and collect the core samples for the last 30-40 years. Then show that the proxies match the instrumented readings.

    Once these two things are done, there should not be much to argue over and we can get down to determining the impact of our actions and the appropriate actions we need to take.

    I think you may be under some misimpressions about what is in fact publically available, but you do have to go to the scientific journals and it takes some degree of technical knowledge to interpret raw data sets. Regardless, I recommend having a look at my "The Hockeystick is Broken" article.

    Don't forget that the past is informative, but it is not explanatory of the present.
