The latest Climate Audit harumph reminds Eli of the original one. A great screech for the DATA. Eli seriously wants to know WHAT data. If it is the actual cores, or their images, that belongs to the Russians who did the coring, not Briffa who they loaned the data to. If so McIntyre is whining up the wrong tree. They are the intellectual property of the Russians and Briffa cannot give them to a third party.
Another point is that the "new cores" were taken by a different group at different times in a different (although perhaps slightly) place. You can't just graft them into the Yamal record as McIntyre tried to do.
Tom P (all credit) has appeared to demolish most of what McIntyre was claiming by doing reconstructions with and without various parts of the Yamal record that McIntyre criticized.
