Warming Consensus Phony? Surprise. Surprise.

The IPCC consensus on climate change was phoney, says IPCC insider @ National Post

Watts bought a bunch of standard measuring stations and coated one with whitewash and the other with the newly specified paint and found the painted stations gave higher readings than the stations finished in the older calcium carbonate.
