A new study found adjustments made to global surface temperature readings by scientists in recent years “are totally inconsistent with published and credible U.S. and other temperature data.”
The peer-reviewed study tried to validate current surface temperature datasets managed by NASA, NOAA and the UK’s Met Office, all of which make adjustments to raw thermometer readings. Skeptics of man-made global warming have criticized the adjustments.
Climate scientists often apply adjustments to surface temperature thermometers to account for “biases” in the data. The new study doesn’t the adjustments themselves but notes nearly all of them increase the warming trend.
Odd, innit? I mean, there were ZERO adjustments down in temperature….One might think that they were trying to increase the recorded temps or something……Perhaps to “Hide the Decline”….?
