Statisticians weigh in

Regarding the column “Followup: Is the late arrival of summer in Chicago proof of global warming?

The American Statistical Association has a column in AmStat News entitled “Statisticians Comment on Status of Climate Change Science” in which the Thomson paper is cited as ‘the paper that convinced me of the connection between CO_2 and climate change’.

But you read it on the Straight Dope first.

[Aside to Cecil: I am a statistician, and I try not to sit beside myself at football games.]
