Global Temperature Proxy Reconstructions ~ Bayesian extrapolation of warming w/ rjags

Update: fixed projection. There are a bunch of “hockey sticks” that calculate past global temps. through the use of proxies when instrumental data is absent. There is a new one out there by McShane and Wyner (2010) that’s creating quite a stir in the blogosphere (here, here, here, here). The main take out being, that

For each of these two locations, pick another random point from one of the three other sides of the square and draw the segment. What is
