Another Study Exposes NOAA Temperature Fraud
What happens when devious politicians team up with complicit scientists? You get man-made global warming. Literally. Just ask the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. We’ve documented how the agency artificially increases the temperature trend so it appears steeper than it actually is. And NOAA’s not the only one. Likewise, both Australia and Switzerland have fraudulently adjusted temperature data. A new analysis from a research group looks deeper into one of the myriad ways NOAA accomplishes this. James Delingpole provides this concise summary:
While satellite records have shown no global warming for at least 18 years, the land based data sets like the ones maintained by NOAA for the US Historical Climate Network (USHCN) continue to show a warming trend. One reason for this discrepancy, the study suggests, is that NOAA has been cherry-picking its raw data. That is, it has ignored the evidence from those weather stations showing little or no late Twentieth century warming and instead placed undue emphasis on the ones that do show warming. But the ones that do show warming also happen to be the least trustworthy. These are the ones, the study shows, which have been most corrupted by the Urban Heat Island effect — and other environmental factors.“
As we wrote in October, the ClimateGate fraud is bigger and more malicious than anyone realizes. So it’s little wonder why NOAA refuses to turn internal communications over to the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology: Because it’s quite possible those communications provide concrete evidence of the very fraud exposed above.
