If you have to lie to make your argument, does that leave you with any argument at all?
Alleged climate scientists have been fiddling with temperature data for years to hide the decline, to juice up their stories, to make their claims about climate catastrophe.
The scandal is slowly, gradually, inexorably becoming mainstream.
“The fiddling with temperature data is the biggest science scandal ever,” says Christopher Booker.
"'Breathtaking' adjustments to Arctic temperature record," notes James Delingpole. "Is there any 'global warming' we can trust?"
‘The raw temperature data is continually adjusted to show more warming,” observes Patrick Michaels.
“This kind of thing is going on all over the world,” notes John Hinderaker. “It is one of the reasons why the satellite data (which, however, go back only to 1979) are so important: they have not been corrupted.
” … the real scandal [is] not so much that two or three climate scientists behaved badly, but that virtually the entire climate science community tried to pretend that nothing was wrong,” says Paul Stephens.
“There isn’t one smidgen of truth to this scam. The people behind it are either incompetent, severely duped, or they are crooks,” says Steven Goddard.
“Disturbing, beyond what they did,” says Tim Ball, “is that they see nothing wrong with their actions. Worse, they reject the explanation.”
