This is his email to me,
You are correct that this completely misrepresents the science.
Attached are two papers that go beyond the old report sited below to demonstrate in a number of ways that the UAH data are more consistent with independent data than RSS and that RSS data, from a number of different ways to assess them, have significant issues.
Bottom line - there is a discrepancy between the what is shown by the observations about the relationship between surface and troposphere and what is shown by models, especially in the tropics.
Thank you so much for checking.
So it seems that it is not just Mr Gore and Mr Durkin who play fast and loose with scientists work.
Anybody who would like to see the papers that Dr Christy mentions should are here and here.
