But that’s not all: US government scientists RIG their output data; AFTER THEY ARE DONE cherry-picking their input data.
(I am referring to US GOVERNMENT CLIMATE and WEATHER scientists, immediately. But if you suffer from the allusion you are a scientist, and work for the US government, you should ask yourself if you are in the wrong kitchen. You absolutely should consider a scientific career at the UN).
GERMS would make superior US government scientists, imho.
The bigger the government, the bigger the lie – has been demonstrated.
In fact, what is proven is that “government scientist” is an oxymoron perfectly designed for the satisfaction of illiterate government bureaucrats and journalists.
My advice is to keep “government scientists” at about 6 parsecs distance (note for journalists, this is a long way). Otherwise, they are genetically predisposed to pick your pocket; and will do so without mercy until long after global warming freezes over.
The “allegations” – as disingeneously referred to by the journalist below – are scientifically justified – the proof is a lock. The facts are obvious and speak for themselves. This is in noteworthy distinction to anthropogenic global warming, which has never been scientifically proven. “TRUE BELIEVERS” are only interested in the unproven. Of what is scientifically proven or what is actual history (e.g. Medieval Warming), they prefer to remain skeptical.
Two American researchers allege that U.S. government scientists have skewed global temperature trends by ignoring readings from thousands of local weather stations around the world, particularly those in colder altitudes and more northerly latitudes, such as Canada.
In the 1970s, nearly 600 Canadian weather stations fed surface temperature readings into a global database assembled by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Today, NOAA only collects data from 35 stations across Canada.
Worse, only one station — at Eureka on Ellesmere Island — is now used by NOAA as a temperature gauge for all Canadian territory above the Arctic Circle.
The Canadian government, meanwhile, operates 1,400 surface weather stations across the country, and more than 100 above the Arctic Circle, according to Environment Canada.
Yet as American researchers Joseph D’Aleo, a meteorologist, and E. Michael Smith, a computer programmer, point out in a study published on the website of the Science and Public Policy Institute, NOAA uses “just one thermometer [for measuring] everything north of latitude 65 degrees.”
