"Still it is an error to argue in front of your data. You find yourself insensibly twisting them round to fit your theories." - Sherlock Holmes
Which is exactly what the Warmist community does. They create a model. The model doesn't reflect reality, so they start tinkering. They form a theory, and then go about proving it. In fact, the Federal Grant programs of many a government actually encourages this by requiring up front the purpose to which the grant will be applied.
Sure enough, Sherlock Holmes would be guest blogging on Watt's Up with That.
