The Anecdote to the Smoking Gun at Darwin Zero
Smoky Falls, Canada
A station with a temperature record spanning from November 1933 to December 1989 with a few years and months of data missing in between.
The raw data shows a warming trend of 0.38C/decade. But not content with sticking to the raw data, those bastard climate scientists came along and "adjusted" it in their figure fiddling ways.
They adjusted the data from 0.38C/decade warming to 0.32C/decade cooling.
The adjustments are shown in blue. There are two large downward adjustments made. Both miss the large gap in 1963-1964.
Here's the two downward adjustments up close:
I can't understand why these adjustments have been made, so obviously this must be evidence that global warming skeptics have hacked into the science databases and fraudulently altered the data to hide the warming.
They've even altered the NASA GISTEMP records of this station, adjusting past temperatures higher to turn strong warming into cooling. James Hansen is going to go mental when he hears about this:
Note that the piddling 1.9C/century adjustment made at Darwin Zero is small fry compared to the massive 7C/century adjustment made here. If that matters.
Now that we have evidence "skeptics" have been manipulating the temperatures downward we should conclude that warming over the 20th century is probably larger than records indicate. Also send plenty of letters to your political representatives asking them to hold an inquiry into these spurious cooling adjustments. This is how Blog Science works isn't it?
