This guys email is intentional deceipt. Our method, as you know, doesn't include any "splicing of two different datasets"-this is a myth perptuated by Singer and his band of hired guns, who haven't bothered to read our papers or the captions of the figures they like to mis-represent...
Phil Jones, Ray Bradley, and Malcolm Hughes dispelled much of the mythology expressed below years ago.
This is intentional misrepresentation. For his sake, I hope does not go public w/ such comments!
[Phil Jones] Mike has deleted all the post 1960 values in the MXD data and infilled them with RegEM.
