The hell with all this, what do the tree rings tell us? What@the trees!?!
How odd that we no longer reference our long lived brothers in forest who accurately measured the seasons temperatures for decade after decade, century after century and are now set aside as meaningless data. Screw the satellite data, I want tree rings dammit!
Climate data without tree rings is MEANINGLESS!
Sorry, I just thought I'd throw that out there. :)
