    Point is, you were perfectly happy with that work until it embarassed you.
    I'm still quite happy with it. It makes an important skeptic point. The rest is just hand-waving.
    As Steve McIntyre has demonstrated, there's nothing wrong with statistics, but there's a lot wrong with people claiming to use statistics but not knowing how.

    Just as there's a lot of people claiming to use climate science, but not knowing how.

    Which you demonstrate here regularly.

Granted, both have a long way to go before totally replacing fossil fuels but they're clearly making progress.

    Solar sucks unless you live in a sunny place or have no other options.
