How can we get NOAA/NASA to understand that we know that they are manipulating temperature data?
Yet another of literally hundreds of improper temperature equipment placements (open link below) which result in higher-than-actual temperature readings. Add to that the “homogenation” of the data (code for ‘manipulation’), and you have a typical example of how temperature data in this country is massaged to support AGW claims. The proximity to the concrete patio earns this station a CRN4 rating, it may be a CRN5 when they wheel out the BBQ away from the house. But who knows? Check out the ‘hinge points’ on the blink comparitor. A fine example of data manipulation by our government. http://wattsupwiththat.com/2009/05/28/how-not-to-measure-temperature-part-87-grilling-in-the-cornhusker-state/#more-8064 icarus62..... the manipulation creates a more dramatic impression of global warming. The manipulation at the front end was adjusted downward. The Alarmist's responses to Watts' study is predictable. He and his group of volunteers have made so-called mainstream "man-did-it" global warming scientists look pretty inept. It is quite apparent that the surface temperature data has been manipulated, and beren and antarctica know it! Just admit it folks.... your spin is simply not working anymore.

They have got caught cooking the results more than once. GISS has even adjusted the global temperature to fit their view of the world of global warming here: http://wattsupwiththat.com/2008/11/14/the-evolution-of-the-giss-temperature-product/#more-4143... More

I totally agree. The scientists now days get their funding from grants researching topics that people want and they lose their funding when they proof the opposite of the position that the grant people want.

They know that the temperature readings are suspect, but they have a political interest in going with the flow. The flow among the politically powerful right now is that global warming is happening and scary... so they won't rock the boat. Yet.

Since the liberal press seems to ignore any facts related to AGW, I think the best we can do is find someone who can understand and give them the evidence. If each of us tells someone, and than tells that someone to tell someone else, the number of skeptics will increase exponentially. There are already millions who... More

Notice that the figures are adjusted *downwards*, not upwards. If they'd had to adjust them upwards, the claim would have been that the warming was being exaggerated. Either way you can claim 'manipulation'. What you're really saying is that *any* kind of errors, once discovered, can never be corrected without... More

I'm not saying temperature records don't need constant monitoring and improvement. But your argument is strange - for example, if the temperature record was corrected to account for the presence of nearby heaters (which it has been), which reduces the observed affect of global warming (which it did), does that count as...

The theory of AGW was already old news before you were born. It's only because of the oil companies ,combined with an oil president ,that have censored, and totally misrepresented the science of climate change.

If Watts would have bothered to look at the data, he would have seen that the data from 1891 to 1917 was adjusted downward by 0.2 C. From 1918 to 1976 it was adjusted downward by 0.1 C. Since we have no idea what the history of this sensor was, there may be very good reasons for the change. Instead of wondering... More

By coming up with some real evidence other than nonsense from blog sites, or your (deniers) continuous ability to claim this about NASA/NOAA and ignore the fact that other groups around the world are coming up with much the same findings. Except of course groups like Heartland who keep coming to the conclusion we don't... More
