The fiddling with temperature data is the biggest science scandal ever
New data shows that the “vanishing” of polar ice is not theresult of runaway global warming
When future generations look back on the global-warming scare of the past 30 years, nothing will shock them more than the extent to which the official temperature records – on which the entire panic ultimately rested – were systematically “adjusted” to show the Earth as having warmed much more than the actual data justified.
Two weeks ago, under the headline “How we are being tricked by flawed data on global warming”, I wrote about Paul Homewood, who, on his Notalotofpeopleknowthat blog, had checked the published temperature graphs for three weather stations in Paraguay against the temperatures that had originally been recorded. In each instance, the actual trend of 60 years of data had been dramatically reversed, so that a cooling trend was changed to one that showed a marked warming.
This was only the latest of many examples of a practice long recognised by expert observers around the world – one that raises an ever larger question mark over the entire official surface-temperature record.

Why should we be concerned? This adjusted data is being used by CARB to justify the full implementation of AB-32, which is an economy destroying regulator tax that business in other states do not have to pay, making California business less competitive. It makes other states, with lower fuel and energy prices, more attractive for business development, and jobs are leaving the state. These regulations and taxes are not based on real science, but on rigged data. A criminal act by government and every California is the victim.
