"Another Nail in the Coffin"Today's WaPo has an article, "Study Reconciles Data in Measuring Climate Change", which describes a government report resolving the previously reported discrepancies between surface temperature measurements and those reported by satellites. This is described as "really a major step forward" and "the nail in the coffin of [the skeptics'] argument" against global warming.
