Pot, Kettle, Black?

USA Today is reporting that a 2006 report produced by Edward Wegman of George Mason University, which was critical of scientific findings of anomalous warming of the northern hemisphere in recent decades relative to the past 1,000 years, has come under fire after independent analyses have uncovered evidence of plagiarism. The report was originally requested by Representative Joe Barton (Texas) in 2005 and subsequently cited by Barton and a host of others as scientific evidence questioning the validity of anthropogenic climate change. Needless to say, one would expect more from climate change contrarians who constantly express the need for a return to traditional scientific methods and more rigorous investigation of climate change.
