In some recent posts, I’ve observed that Carvin made a couple of astonishing gaffes in his oral argument. In today’s post, I’ll comment on the worst one. First, I’ll report the exchange without context. I presume that 99.99% of Climate Audit readers will spot the gaffe immediately. Below the fold, I’ll explain Carvin’s goof and […]
