In recent testimony before the Commerce, Science, and Transportation Subcommittee, Senator Ted Cruz asked atmospheric climate scientist Judith Curry about the alarming trend of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration consistently “adjusting” the temperature data — data that many climate change reports and policies are based on — upwards in recent years.
“…the adjustments, as you can see, are rather huge… [T]he error bars should really be much bigger if they’re making such large adjustments. So, we really don’t know too much about what’s going on in terms of– there’s a great deal of uncertainty.”
In other words, the climate data that we’re continuously being told proves without a doubt, science is settled and all that, that man is causing global warming is… fuzzy at best because, “we really don’t know too much about what’s going on” since NOAA, an organization with an obvious vested interest in fudging the numbers, is obviously fudging the numbers and fudging them upward.
NOAA, by the way, recently refused to hand over this exact temperature data to Congress for review on the grounds that there is “a long-standing practice in the scientific community to protect the confidentiality of deliberative scientific discussions”.
Data should be data. That’s it. Period. Data (well, data that hasn’t been fudged) should stand on its own. Obviously someone has something to hide here if they won’t just hand it over.
