and distorting climate data

Cherry-picking weather stations to hide temperature drop

22 Jan 10 - "Climate researchers and the Weather Channel's founder accuse NASA of the same deliberate manipulation and distortion of climate data as Britain's Climate Research Unit," says this article in Investors Business Daily.

In a report on KUSI television, Weather Channel founder John Coleman accuses NASA's two primary climate centers, the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) in Asheville, N.C., and the Goddard Institute for Space Studies at Columbia University in New York City,  of "creating a strong bias toward warmer temperatures through a system that dramatically trimmed the number and cherry-picked the locations of weather observation stations they use to produce the data set on which temperature record reports are based."

Joseph D'Aleo, of (a great website), said the analysis found that NASA "systematically eliminated 75% of the world's stations with a clear bias toward removing higher-latitude, high-altitude and rural locations."

"The number of actual weather stations used to calculate average global temperatures was reduced from about 6,000 in the 1970s to about 1,500 today. The number of reporting stations in Canada dropped from 600 to 35."

The article goes on to describe "dramatic and selective deletions of thermometers from cold locations ... patterns of deletion that could not be accidental ... a scientific travesty committed by activist scientists to advance the global warming agenda."

       "It is looking now like we may find that - after all the corrections for
         fraud are complete, there never WAS any "dangerous/accelerating/
         alarming/unusual" global warming," says Burt.
