You are the solar guru. It looks like gibbersih to me. Perhaps one can try and use the engione to replicate it? I did some Googlin, he has posted at WUWT before, so unless someone is doing multiple pranks....
Regardless, if this has not already been done. The above message gives me an an excellent, if not evil idea.....it would be an excellent way to expose Watts et al. ;) Watts might be vulnerable right now b/c he is so busy reviewing papers (probably E&E as you noted).
John: my first thoughts are that the topic is way over the heads of the WUWT crowd.
The major topic is cycles generally, with sub topics of e.g. Morlet wavelets and chaos theory. The basic premis seems to be that intuitively minor influences on climate may generate what I would call 'resonances': cycles on the lines of the Milankovitch cycles. Taken together, these minor influences are said to probably equate to fractions of a degree Kelvin variations in global temperatures.
