In my opinion the fraud is identifying "present day" level in a way that is highly misleading. Most people would assume that means "now", or perhaps the last decade or two.

But it's clearly something else - perhaps the last two centuries average. That doesn't correspond to a reasonable definition of "present day" in the context of a discussion of global warming.

Also the original chart on which Easterbrook based his, clearly indicated that recent temperatures (in the 2000s) were well above the baseline (which in turn is identified as "mid twentieth-century"). That information has been carefully excised, as far as I can see.

It's worth pointing out what the 0 line represents, according to the "source" link.

"The records are plotted with respect to the mid 20th century average temperatures".

Easterbrook has a pretty interesting definition of "present day"; presumably it goes back to the 19th century or more.

Actually, come to think of it Barton staffer Peter Spencer usually attends Heartland, so he could be on the panel instead of McIntyre. (And if you want to know who he is, and how he fits in to the Barton investigation and Wegman panel, check this out):

Perhaps Heartland could do a session on "striking similarity" between certain major contrarian papers and their antecedents. Pros and cons of using blogs vs text books vs Wikipedia for this purpose. Featuring Alan Carlin (of EPA fame) and Steve McIntyre standing in for the Wegman team.
