They Were, Err, Umm, "Adjusted"

When future generations look back on the global-warming scare of the past 30 years, nothing will shock them more than the extent to which the official temperature records – on which the entire panic ultimately rested – were systematically “adjusted” to show the Earth as having warmed much more than the actual data justified.

Yep, but the real 'raw' data is still available... I think... I hope!!!

I am not a scientist. But when you adjust data is it still science?

Well of course we needed to adjust them. We needed to add the accruacy to the data from nay records that were more than 15 years old. Those old methods were just not precise enough for us to be able to compare them to today's numbers. You can't expe
Ct us to be able to draw valid conclusions based on data that had a possible 5 degree variance with today's data that is valid to a thousandth of a degree. So you see , in order to compare the old data with the current data we had to back and make the old data also accurate to a thousandth of a degree. Is that so hard to understand????

Bahh ......... Don't you just hate it when all these uneducated masses try to understand the more technical aspects of what it takes to be a respected post Doc researcher. I'd like to see them try to write a grant application........ They would all stave,
