Esta es la declaración de Muller, el creador del Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature Project (BEST). Algunas páginas atrás mencionaron que su registro de temperatura, que iba a ser el «mejor» y apoyado por los «escépticos», es preliminarmente idéntico a los registros actuales.
«We have done an initial study of the station selection issue. Rather than pick stations with long records (as done by the prior groups) we picked stations randomly from the complete set. This approach eliminates station selection bias. Our results are shown in the Figure; we see a global warming trend that is very similar to that previously reported by the other groups.
We have also studied station quality. Many US stations have low quality rankings according to a study led by Anthony Watts. However, we find that the warming seen in the “poor” stations is virtually indistinguishable from that seen in the “good” stations.»
