An article in Save Capitalism blog exposes the dirty data manipulation engaged in by GHCN (Global Historical Climatology Network, a part of NOAA – National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) as it pertains to temperature measurement records for Antarctica. The artcle’s author, an amateur, shows how the actual data has been adjusted to produce a bogus warming trend line. This is one of only about 3 data sets relied upon by all the climatologists, including Phil Jones of Climategate-CRU fame and our own “Dr. Doom” Hanson of NASA GISS (Goddard Institute for Space Studies). The article details how the temperature reports from 110 data series was reduced to essentially the data from 18, hand-picked to show a warming trend. If this isn’t scientific fraud, I don’t know what is.
The subject was then picked up and elaborated upon by The Air Vent which further suspects that the data from a single, coastal station was actually used in the “science” of IPCC climatology.
