Even for those of us who follow the climate change debate fairly closely, this is a shocker.
A noted researcher has discovered huge discrepancies in the published and actual temperatures at weather stations around the world. Not surprisingly, almost all of the discrepancies show an increase in temperature.
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.
