Sunday Telegraph columnist Christopher booker reports 22 June on Steven Goddard`s US blog REAL SCIENCE showing how shamelessly manipulated has been one of the world`s most influential climate records. This is the graph of US surface temperature records published by the National Oceanic and
Goddardshows how in recent years, NOAA`s US Historical Climatology Network(USHCN) has been "adjusting" its record by replacing real temperatures with data "fabricated" by computer models. The effect of this has been to downgrade earlier temperatures and to exaggerate those from recent decades, to give the impression that the earth has been warming up much more than is justified by the actual data. In several posts headed "Data tampering at USHCN/Giss"Goddard compares the currently published temperature graphs with those based only on temperatures measured at the time. These showthe US has actually been cooling since the Thirties, the hottest decade on record; whereas the latest graph ,nearly half of it based on "fabricated" data shows it to have been warming at a rate equivalent to more than three degrees centigrade.
per century. this is not science but is in fact lying political propaganda. Those who support it are liars.
(see my post on this site 12 April for graphics compiled byGoddard giving more damming evidence of the political. manipulation at the heart of surface temperature records.
