Australian Bureau Of Meteorology Caught Red-Handed Manipulating Temperature Records

Australian Bureau of Meteorology caught red-handed manipulating temperature records (Ice Age Now, Aug 30, 2014):

Accused of criminally adjusting data to show “global warming” where none actually exists.


“At Amberley, Queensland, for example, the data at a weather station showing 1 degree Celsius cooling per century was “homogenized” (adjusted) by the Bureau so that it instead showed a 2.5 degrees warming per century,” says this article on Brietbart.com.

“At Rutherglen, Victoria, a cooling trend of -0.35 degrees C per century was magically transformed at the stroke of an Australian meteorologist’s pen into a warming trend of 1.73 degrees C per century.

“Last year, the Australian Bureau of Meteorology made headlines in the liberal media by claiming that 2013 was Australia’s hottest year on record.

“But we now know, thanks to research by Australian scientist Jennifer Marohasy, that the hysteria this story generated was based on fabrications and lies.
