A global warming skeptic thinks he has figured out why the computer models don’t match the thermometer outside – the government data is wrong. Not accidentally wrong, but intentionally wrong.
According to his January 19, 2014 blog post, the US government lowered the temperature readings from years gone by but left alone current temperature readings. That makes it look as if the Earth was colder in the past and getting warmer nowadays. They converted a 90-year cooling trend into global warming by faking the data.
The most graphic illustration is the fifth chart down the page, an animated chart of US Temperature that shows how changing the data changes the result. Look for this chart on the website and watch as it changes.
Next thing you know, you’ll be saying that the Government is using the executive branch to stifle speech.
