The best of the worst
UPDATE: A new classic, commented on everywhere
Influence of the Southern Oscillation on tropospheric temperature(2009), Influence of the Southern Oscillation on tropospheric temperature, J. Geophys. Res., 114, D14104, doi:10.1029/2008JD011637.
With comments at Open Mind, Real Climate, James Empty Blog, In It For the Gold, Deltoid, More Grumbine Science and just about the entire Rabett Run Blogroll. An instant classic of denial and self regard.
John Mashey asks
Maybe the Rabett has this list stuffed in his burrow:But friend Cohenite already delivered and Eli blogged on it. Still, there is a fair amount of E&E in there, so here are Eli's top four.
is there a nice list somewhere of truly awful climate papers published in otherwise-plausible-looking journals? (I.e., not E&E, or JSE, or things like that.)
The main use of this is to know where peer review seems to be failing.
