Thanks to a climate change skeptic, scientists with UC San Diego’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography and Princeton University are walking back on a highly circulated study claiming oceans are heating up at a much higher rate than previously thought. Their study claimed that 60 percent more warming in the oceans was occurring, but math errors have turned the study upside down.
Errors? It seems that scientists have a tough time with math when it comes to climate change. Tough, that is, perhaps because these ‘errors’ are so easily discovered. The Telegraph published a piece calling climate change the ‘greatest science scandal of all time’.
The Telegraph recently published an article that exposes how the data supporting global warming ‘science’, specifically official temperature records, have been manipulated systematically to give the appearance that the Earth has warmed considerably more than it actually has.
Two weeks ago, under the headline “How we are being tricked by flawed data on global warming”, I wrote about Paul Homewood, who, on his Notalotofpeopleknowthat blog, had checked the published temperature graphs for three weather stations in Paraguay against the temperatures that had originally been recorded. In each instance, the actual trend of 60 years of data had been dramatically reversed, so that a cooling trend was changed to one that showed a marked warming.
This was only the latest of many examples of a practice long recognised by expert observers around the world – one that raises an ever larger question mark over the entire official surface-temperature record.
