AGW data faked?

December 10, 2009

I linked on this same subject yesterday but Ace of Spades has it today. I’m not going to go as far as Ace and call it faked. Too many people have to be involved for it to be faked and stay quiet. I am going to say that the work appears incredibly sloppy and all the data and computer models need extensive review.

Instapundit is looking for an idea for an electronics book for a niece or nephew. I sent my ideas.

Hot Air also looks at the Australian temperature data. Jumps on the it’s fake bandwagon. All I can say is careful. Faked is a very loaded word. If this turns out to be human error rather than malicious fakery we will look stupid. This is a possibility the author of the original post left open –

Now, I want to be clear here. The blatantly bogus GHCN adjustment for this one station does NOT mean that the earth is not warming. It also does NOT mean that the three records (CRU, GISS, and GHCN) are generally wrong either. This may be an isolated incident, we don’t know. But every time the data gets revised and homogenized, the trends keep increasing. Now GISS does their own adjustments. However, as they keep telling us, they get the same answer as GHCN gets … which makes their numbers suspicious as well.

Another Fox Idiocy – 120% of Americans have a view on climategate

Obama orders 1,000,000 troops to prepare for civil war. I am going to be blunt here – Bullcrap.

Nortcom was established after the 9/11 attacks. It’s role is to provide support to federal and state officials in case of attack or natural disaster and to protect the US from exterior attack. It has only a 1200 person headquarters it draws its troops from other combatant commands. Now how is a command with no troops suddenly going to acquire 33% of all the active duty and reserve forces and fight a civil war? Or maybe these are the secret frozen troops kept in cold storage under Lake Michigan.

How do I know this? Because the same rumor was running across the internets sometime last year when a unit was assigned as an anti-terror response unit, and then again sometime around July and I took the trouble to look it up. Also the source isn’t exactly reliable look at who they link to – Stormfront (white supremacist), American Free Press (9/11 Truthers), American Renaissance (white Seperatist), Romanian National Vanguard (white supremacist). Not exactly an unbiased source.
