Is it? How was the data presented in the paper in question? How much did it vary from the earlier "verified" model for the "pause?" Did you notice the title of that paper, btw?
That is close enough to "fraudulent" for horseshoes.
You're complaining about the "old" dataset now?
How about if NOAA publically explains why the more accurate buoy data was adjusted to the less accurate ship's data, instead of the other way around?
Second, there was a large change in ship observations (from buckets to engine intake thermometers) that peaked around World War II. The previous version of ERSST assumed that no ship corrections were necessary after this time, but recently improved metadata (18) reveal that some ships continued to take bucket observations even up to the present day.
