The fiddling with temperature data is the biggest science scandal ever

By Christopher Booker, telegraph.co.uk

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.

    Global warming cannot be happening. One shred of evidence for global warming was the fact that icebergs are melting, which will cause the oceans to rise. Other ice-sheets are getting bigger though. “While the Antarctic Peninsula is getting warmer, the western part of the Antarctic is getting cooler” (Wile, Jay L., and Marilyn F. Durnell. Exploring Creation with Biology. 2nd ed. Anderson, IN: Apologia Educational Ministries, 2005. 321. Print.). Seeing the fact that the temperature has not risen any substantial amount, global warming indicates a problem with its theory. Temperatures that were taken here on earth show a increase, but most of the earth is covered by the ocean, so the temperatures are not an accurate showing. Marking the temperature of the entire earth, the satellite’s data shows no substantial increase. Measuring the temperature in parts per million (ppm), graphs show a large increase in the temperature indicating that the earth is getting warmer. When the graphs are not made using ppm, temperature is always around average: not moving up. Global warming needs to be acknowledged as false.

      This whole “Ice is expanding” argument is based on the seasonal expansion and contraction of surface ice. Here is a list of facts that you can feel free to check:

      The growth of surface ice has no affect on sea levels
      Surface ice is ~1 meter thick
      Glacial ice is >1 kilometer thick
      Glaciers in Antarctica contain 70% of the world’s fresh water
      Glacial melt in Green-land is 60 years ahead of “worst-case” predictions of 30 years ago.
      A glacier the size of Somalia just broke off the coast of Antarctica
      A glacier the size of Germany if fracturing from the base.

      The oil inudstry has hired the same people who postponed tobacco legislation by creating an illusion of doubt about the link between tobacco and cancer to sow doubt about global warming.

    Fiddled statistics and yet no temparature rise? Does this mean temperatures have been dropping?!?

    2005 Was ten years ago. It’s time to face reality. Greenland will melt. Antarctica will melt. Its just a question of how long.
