What Peiser's up to

I had wondered earlier why so many people were Googling Benny Peiser, the dishonest British academic/global warming septic. Meyrick Kirby traces it to Richard Lindzen, who also peddles some garbage of his own ("Since about 1970, many of the glaciers have stopped retreating and some are now advancing again." Got a reference for that gem, Richard? Especially a statistically meaningful reference?)

Anyway, Meyrick ferrets out more of Peiser's mistakes. What we need is a credible effort to replicate the search of peer-reviewed abstracts for the opinion on global warming. Peiser's work very much doesn't cut it.
