Warmists Caught Fudging Data in New Zealand

Posted by Van Helsing at November 26, 2009 8:31 AM

Global warming is manmade, all right. It's made by men in lab coats who angle for government grants by fudging the data. Right on the heels of ClimateGate we have this news from New Zealand:

The New Zealand Government's chief climate advisory unit NIWA is under fire for allegedly massaging raw climate data to show a global warming trend that wasn't there.
The scandal breaks as fears grow worldwide that corruption of climate science is not confined to just Britain's CRU climate research centre.
In New Zealand's case, the figures published on NIWA's [the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric research] website suggest a strong warming trend in New Zealand over the past century:

Wow, if it keeps warming up at this rate, soon the weather will be downright pleasant. Except here's what the graph looks like if you use the raw data:

As you can see, the graph indicates no significant warming for the last century and a half.

The New Zealand Climate Science Coalition [PDF] explains the difference between the graphs:

The shocking truth is that the oldest readings have been cranked way down and later readings artificially lifted to give a false impression of warming… There is nothing in the station histories to warrant these adjustments…
One station, Hokitika, had its early temperatures reduced by a huge 1.3°C, creating strong warming from a mild cooling, yet there's no apparent reason for it.
We have discovered that the warming in New Zealand over the past 156 years was indeed man-made, but it had nothing to do with emissions of CO2 — it was created by man-made adjustments of the temperature. It's a disgrace.

With the global warming hoax, we are seeing moonbattery do to science what it has already done to art, education, journalism, and — with the ascension of characters like Barack Obama and Al Franken — politics. Now that the scam has been revealed, the scientific community has an opportunity to put this shameful farce behind it and get back on the rails before it loses all credibility and respect.

On a tip from Oiao.

So, this is their best evidence that there is such a thing as "AGW":

And just how long (if ever) do you suppose it will take the lamestream media to get on this report?

My guess? Never. Because it's an incredible embarrassment to the very people they adore and, in some cases, pray to - like Al Bore.

Their motive is clear; produce extremely difficult to comprehend data, fixed to indicate the desired affect, and apply for multi-million dollar federal grants (our tax dollars!) to "continue this vital, Earth saving science".

It's as much a fraud scheme as anything Bernie Madoff ever came up with, but those responsible will never suffer the same fate. In fact, they'll likely IGNORE these findings and continue merrilee along, collecting millions more for the very same JUNK SCIENCE.

Call you congress critter and demand an investigation of the EPA, NASA and NOAA on this!

At least Inhofe is showing some leadership on this issue.

If Obamcare is the 'Waterloo', than Cap and Tax is the 'Little Bighorn' for the Far Left.

AL GORE is afraid to debate his GLOBAL WARMING bunk becuase he dont want to be proven a liar which he is

Now is the time for action. We must not let these idiots get away with "climate change" bills, regulation and the like

We need to be proactive and start a serious challenge to this bunk and get it stopped now before laws and treaties are in place.

Write the politicians, call, send letters to the editor and LETS MAKE SOME NOISE.

This could totally discredit the "O" administration, AlGore and Congress...and maybe put a big dent in losing our sovereignty to some One World Government.

My concern is that so many people are so ignorant and blind will they accept the truth about global warming. It's an actual hoax. The politician are to stupid and greedy to understand what really going on.

Fortunately, even if pres odumbass goes to Copenhagen and signs some ridiculous treaty, it still has to be ratified by the Senate. Good luck on that one. Kyoto lost out 99-0 after that boob clinton signed it. I suspect the same thing will happen this time, although I'm sure a lot of dope-ocrats will vote for it. If you think the town hall meetings were fun last summer, wait until you idiots try to give away our sovereignty to some unelected UN bastards.

I don't worship Al Gore, nor do I think he is a very good spokesperson for global climate change as he has been shown to be rather hypocritical on the matter. I dont know what his deal is.

that aside, I can see a trend in the unaltered data shown above. there is a a marked upswing from 1930 onward and that was obvious to the naked eye.

there is far more evidence to climate change than this data set. Have you seen the photos yet of the 1/2km wide iceberg floating off the coast of New Zealand? the elusive northwest passage is opening up, and migratory birds are changing their patterns.

if you want to debate anything, debate whether or not climate change is manmade. To debate whether or not climate change is happening is asinine. its happening. there are multitudes of data that prove it.

but if you must insist upon conspiracy theory then so be it. Just make sure you look in to the Pentaveret. I am sure Colonel Sanders (with his wee beady eyes!) has his hands in all this.

Heres a message to the kiwis keep a eye on those green moonbats becuase their up to their dirty work 24/7

realist, first and foremost the argument is about AGW (man-made). Cap and trade, Kyoto, "Hope"enhagen...all these are using AWG as the pretext for economic re-distribution.

Climate, by it's very nature, is ALWAYS in a state of flux. The sun by FAR has the greatest impact on the trends and cycles we see.

There is nothing wrong with people living cleanly, but (a) destroying a free market economy won't accomplish this, (b) the date used to bolster support for those changes is phony, (c) even the proposed changes...if fully implemented...would have a statistical "zero" impact on modifying global climate...

I could go on, but you get the point. By the way, pack ice is way up in Antarctica, and winter 2008 saw one of the coldest and heaviest freezes in the arctic in years.
