Hi Denise, this will be my only comment, I felt it was important to
share.

Compiling the China project data and analysing this data are two
very different things. If Dr Campbell and his team were trying to be
misleading in any way then it doesn't make sense that Dr Campbell
would then make the data available to the public?
Like Dr Campbell said the team wanted to be as transparent as
possible. Unfortunately he fears of the data being misinterpreted
were confirmed as every tom, dick and harry suddenly became a
scientist.

"We discussed data use and misuse on pp. 54-82 of the China
Project monograph that curiously was overlooked by Masterjohn
and Jay'Y"

Dr Campbell was afraid his findings would be misinterpreted and
yet again it has been by another "well intentioned" paleo. Can data
of this nature be analysed effectively by an individual unqualified in
the field? I think not. At least 700 other studies corroborate the 27
year study.

If anyone is thinking of reading Denise's assessment I would save
yourself the time as it's based on her convenient misinterpretation
of the raw data and is therefore incorrect. Her findings almost
identical to the ones made by other paleo's refuted by Dr Campbell
in 2006

Here is a little excerpt from Dr Campbell's Rebuttal:

"For the monograph, we were somewhat uncertain whether to
publish such raw data but decided to do so for two principle
reasons. First, we wanted to make these data available to other
researchers, while hoping that data misuse would not be a
significant problem. Second, because these data were collected in
rural China at a time when data reliability might have been
questioned, we chose to be as transparent as possible. We
discussed data use and misuse on pp. 54-82 of the China Project
monograph that curiously was overlooked by Masterjohn and
Jay'Y'."
