James Delingpole on the blatant manipulation of the temperature records:

If the temperature records on which the entire edifice of the international global warming industry is based are a busted flush then we have all been victims of a scam so vast and all-encompassing it makes Enron look like a model of modesty and integrity. It also raises the question ? and I speak here, of course, metaphorically rather than literally: when are heads going to roll?

When indeed?

Delingpole’s entire article outlines the extent of the data fraud that is going on inside the global warming industry.

?Fiddling temperature data is the biggest science scandal ever,? says Christopher Booker, not pulling his punches. And I think he?s right not to do so. If ? as Booker, myself, and few others?suspect ? the guardians of the world?s land-based temperature records have been adjusting the raw data in order to exaggerate ?global warming? then this is indeed a crime against the scientific method unparalleled in history.

Sure you could make a case that Lysenkoism or? Hitler?s war to discredit ?Jewish science? were more evil but these were confined to discrete geographical regions under specific totalitarian regimes. What?s so extraordinary about the manipulations to the global land-based temperature sets is that they affect every one of us, wherever we live. ?

Whether you?re an elderly couple in mid-Wales who have just had 20 per cent knocked off the value of your retirement cottage by the new wind farm on the hill opposite, or you?re a tribesman in the South East Asian jungle whose virgin forest home has been trashed to make way for a palm oil plantation to grow eco-friendly biofuels, or you?re a scientist in New Zealand who has been hounded out of your job because your research doesn?t fit the ?global warming? narrative, or you?re a science teacher in Ohio who is obliged, whether you like it or not, to lecture your charges on the dread perils of climate change, or you?re a Republican senatorial candidate who has been targeted as a ?denier? in a green attack dog campaign financed by Tom Steyer, you?re all victims of the same global scam: a scam perpetrated by a tiny handful of individuals whose junk statistical manipulation of the global climate records have transformed routine weather patterns into the world?s biggest and most influential ever science scare story.


Just to recap, here is what we now know about the world?s land-based temperature records. The raw weather station data appears to show in many cases that the 1930s was the warmest decade in the last 100 years (not, as activists like James Hansen have insisted, the period since the late 1990s). Yet this data has now been ?adjusted? ? so far without any convincing explanation ? in order to make the 1930s look cooler than they were and recent periods warmer. The net effect of this has been to make Twentieth century warming look much more dramatic and extreme than it may actually have been ? generating concomitant panic among the scientific establishment which has been using this ?adjusted? data as the basis for its narrative that we are currently experiencing a dangerous and unprecedented phenomenon sometimes known (though they keep changing the name) as Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming.

A scare story where NONE of their predictions have come to pass…unless of course they have dramatically altered the source data to create the impression that their predictions?were right all along.

It is in fact a fraud, because they use these reports and the manipulated data to gain a pecuniary advantage…more funding for more of their junk science and sham reports.

Time for the Inquisition to start.
