I have to disagree with the headline. It's the world leaders that were duping their own citizens. They've know this data has been manipulated since 'ClimateGate' back in 2009.
The Mail on Sunday today reveals astonishing evidence that the organisation that is the world’s leading source of climate data rushed to publish a landmark paper that exaggerated global warming and was timed to influence the historic Paris Agreement on climate change.
A high-level whistleblower has told this newspaper that America’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) breached its own rules on scientific integrity when it published the sensational but flawed report, aimed at making the maximum possible impact on world leaders including Barack Obama and David Cameron at the UN climate conference in Paris in 2015.
Whistle blower Dr. Bates said they tripled warming trends data to make sea temperatures look warmer than they actually were from 2000 to 2014.
Dr Bates said: ‘They had good data from buoys. And they threw it out and “corrected” it by using the bad data from ships. You never change good data to agree with bad, but that’s what they did – so as to make it look as if the sea was warmer.’
They also manipulated land based temperature records from 2000 to 2014 to show an extra 9% increase in warming over the past decade.
Mr. Bates says there needs to be changes to the way NOAA calculates data.
‘there needs to be a fundamental change to the way NOAA deals with data so that people can check and validate scientific results. I’m hoping that this will be a wake-up call to the climate science community – a signal that we have to put in place processes to make sure this kind of crap doesn’t happen again.'
'I want to address the systemic problems. I don’t care whether modifications to the datasets make temperatures go up or down. But I want the observations to speak for themselves, and for that, there needs to be a new emphasis that ethical standards must be maintained.’
At the very end of the article Daily mail puts this little gem in there. The whole time I was reading this article I was wondering if they were going to mention anything about global cooling because I know that was a big issue for the UN in the 1970s and then the UN switched positions around the 1990s.
Clif High the creator of the web bot believe we are entering a new ice age with the data coming out of the web bot. I've also seen other data suggesting we hare entering a mini-ice age with the decline in sun spots these past few decades.
Has there been an unexpected pause in global warming? If so, is the world less sensitive to carbon dioxide than climate computer models suggest?
And does this mean that truly dangerous global warming is less imminent, and that politicians’ repeated calls for immediate ‘urgent action’ to curb emissions are exaggerated?
It very interesting that a main stream media site would post something to go against climate change. Is this just another sign of the elite losing control over the people or maybe they are trying to switch the narrative of global warming because they know cooler temperatures are going to be impossible to cover up?
