Masters, McKibben, and droughting Thomases | Watts Up With That?
Agricultural science trumps a drought year. That’s a hockey stick we can all believe in.

Call me a “doubting Thomas” as to overwrought claims by Masters and McKibben, but the fact is that the 2012 drought isn’t as bad as they would have you believe and won’t show you these other data because they don’t fit their business model.

The Rain Gain Refrain | Digging in the Clay
Despite claims of increased rainfall it doesn’t look like there’s anything exciting in the data.
