A huge Homer Simpson moment for the Michael Crichton global-warming-is-hooey crowd. These folks who have repeatedly advocated climate change is bunk and needs more scientific proof received a fatal blow to their already-flimsy armor.

A study they've often cited in hopes of disproving the hundreds of other studies which show the opposite has recently been proven to be in err. (Note in the story the petro-backed fellow, Herlong, conveniently "declined to comment" -- this revealing silence despite the scientist who led the flawed study graciously stating, "Our hats are off to (them). They found a real source of error.")

Guess the energy-funded scientists will simply have to uncover some other (flawed) study to use as a go-to propaganda device.
