From the Daily Telegraph, UK: When future generations look back on the global-warming scare of the past 30 years, nothing will shock them more than the extent to which the official temperature records – on which the entire panic ultimately rested – were systematically “adjusted” to show the Earth as having warmed much more than the actual data justified.
Of much more serious significance, however, is the way this wholesale manipulation of the official temperature record – for reasons GHCN and Giss have never plausibly explained – has become the real elephant in the room of the greatest and most costly scare the world has known. This really does begin to look like one of the greatest scientific scandals of all time. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/earth/environment/globalwarming/11395516/The-fiddling-with-temperature-data-is-the-biggest-science-scandal-ever.html
While global warming/climate change believers would like to think this is settled science, it is far from it.
I have always believed that global warming/climate change has been a hox. Why?
There is a lot of money to be made by claiming climate change is real. That's how professors and scientists get grants.
And just ask Al Gore about making money off of global warming all the while he pollutes with the best of him.
