Dodgy Down Under Data

It seems that the Australian BOM has been caught cooking the books on historical temperature data to create a much greater warming slope than that indicated by the raw data.Adjustments of course are always upwards which is statistically impossible but statistical rectitude has never been high on the warmist agenda.


CLAIMS MADE IN THE STATE OF THE CLIMATE REPORT PRODUCED BY BOM AND CSIRO IN MARCH 2010.

Since 1960 the mean temperature in Australia has increased by about 0.7 °C . The long term trend in temperature is clear…
TRUE. But the raw data shows the mean temperature since 1910 has increased only 0.6 C.
Australian average temperatures are projected to rise by 0.6 to 1.5 ÂșC by 2030.
REALLY? That would require between 5 and 12 times the rate of warming seen in the raw temperature record, or between 3 and 7.5 times that shown by BOM’s published figures.
Much of Australia will be drier in coming decades
MAYBE NOT. See http://kenskingdom.wordpress.com/2010/03/20/political-science-101/.
Our observations clearly demonstrate that climate change is real.
TRUE- that’s what climate does.
However our great friends and fierce rivals across the Tasman in Kiwiland have probably narrowly won the data fudging competition and there is currently a court case on the dubious accuracy of the records used to justify their Carbon Tax. It absolutely amazes me as an engineer how anyone can accept this blatant manipulation of data.

  1. Think about invenstment bankers and politicians, commissions and taxes. How could the data not be forced to conform to the conclusions that will lead to so much revenue
