Global Warmists Are At It Again

Just when you thought it was safe to go in the water...the global warming climate change hoaxters are at it again, manipulating data when it doesn't suit their phony thesis. (Much like Democrats keep finding votes when their opponent has just won a photo-finish election.) This time, the Brits--lynchpins in the ongoing hoax whose real agenda is income distribution on a massive scale--are in the forefront once again:
Dr Benny Peiser and Dr David Whitehouse, of the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF), have written to John Hirst, chief executive of the beleaguered Met Office, asking for an explanation of a press release issued by his organisation on January 20 and headed “2010 – a near record year”. This won headlines by claiming that last year was hotter than any other in the past decade.

When the two men examined the original data from which this claim was derived – compiled by the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit and the Met Office’s Hadley Centre – it clearly showed 2010 as having been cooler than 2005 (and 1998) and equal to 2003. It emerged that, for the purposes of the press release, the data had been significantly adjusted.
How'd this happen? Simple:
Comparing the actual data for each year, from 2001 to 2010, with that given in the press release shows that for four years the original figure has been adjusted downwards. Only for 2010 was the data revised upwards, by the largest adjustment of all, allowing the Met Office to claim that 2010 was the hottest year of the decade.
Power Line, in the meantime, explores the equally nefarious scientific malfeasance--supported by the taxpayers--of the left-wing climate liars who populate NASA and NOAA. They, too, were confronted with data that didn't support their phony thesis. Power Line posts animated before and after charts to show how their manipulation of the urban heat-island effect--an outlier in overall climate data--is used to distort the actual, normalized statistics. Which (unmanipulated) statistics decided do not support the global warming hoax.

These clowns just won't give up, will they? Perhaps this cadre of NASA and NOAA climate propagandists scientists could be another area Republicans might target for some useful budget cuts. Taxpayers would save twice over by eliminating the employees and their rich pensions as well as killing off their endless supply of bad faith data that, daily, along with the predations of EPA, is driving American's gasoline and utility bills ever higher as the use of relatively inexpensive fossil fuel resources is relentlessly choked off, not by shortages but via an extraordinarily vicious and cynical government policy.
