All Scientists are Sceptics ~Professor Bob Carter

Whenever someone asserts that a scientific question is “settled,” they tell me immediately that they don’t understand the first thing about science. Science is never settled. Dr David Deming

Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of the science of climate change is the lack of any real substance in attempts to justify the hypothesis ~Professor Stewart Franks

NIWA Wrong in Making Temperature Warmer

By Anthony Cox

In 2012 Judgement was given in a case where the New Zealand equivalent of the Bureau of Meteorology, NIWA, was accused of adjusting temperature data to make the record warmer; the decision went against the litigants because the Judge said he had to believe the better scientific credentials of NIWA; see: http://www.onlineopinion.com.au/view.asp?article=14122


Now a new paper has come out written by prominent scientists who have equal qualifications to the NIWA scientists which supports the case against NIWA for wrongly making temperature warmer: http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/SC1410/S00086/new-paper-finds-no-significant-20th-century-warming-for-nz.htm (See footnote)

Just as in Australia with BOM we see NZ having its temperature record wrongly made warmer.

It’s a pity this new paper was not available to the litigants against NIWA.

A research paper on the homogenisation of the temperature record in New Zealand, reducing the current official rate of 0.9°C per century to 0.3°C, has just been published in the international scientific journal Environmental Modeling and Assessment.
