It shouldn't have been a surprise to find that the tallbloke blog has a load of astrologers and they're keen on Venus-Moon alignments (whatever an alignment is) and the QBO-TSI-CW model to try and bypass AGW evidence.

Do you think this technique where you:

> set the model and data values to zero at intervals from 0 to 3 years after a massive volcanic eruption. set the model and data values to zero at intervals from 0 to 3 years after a volcanic event

is appropriate for dealing with possible regime changes eg. 1935; 1880-1920,1920-1960,1960-2000; 1975 etc.?
