Why Only a Gullible Idiot Trusts the Climate Data

 Both raw and adjusted data from the NCDC has been examined for a selected Contiguous U. S. set of rural and urban stations, 48 each or one per State. The raw data provides 0.13 and 0.79 oC/century temperature increase for the rural and urban environments. The adjusted data provides 0.64 and 0.77 oC/century respectively. The rates for the raw data appear to correspond to the historical change of rural and urban U. S. populations and indicate warming is due to urban warming. Comparison of the adjusted data for the rural set to that of the raw data shows a systematic treatment that causes the rural adjusted set’s temperature rate of increase to be 5-fold more than that of the raw data. The adjusted urban data set’s and raw urban data set’s rates of temperature increase are the same. This suggests the consequence of the NCDC’s protocol for adjusting the data is to cause historical data to take on the time-line characteristics of urban data. The consequence intended or not, is to report a false rate of temperature increase for the Contiguous U. S._WUWT
The difference between urban temperatures and rural temperatures is the urban heat island effect.  IPCC affiliated climate record-keeping institutions make adjustments to correct for the urban heat island -- but these adjustments exaggerate the effect rather than eliminating it.  At the same time, large numbers of rural temperature stations have been eliminated from the record -- increasing the effect of "adjusted" temperatures on the overall surface temperature record.

By exaggerating the "official" record of global temperature increase, these institutions have distorted the picture of the global climate in the direction of an unwarranted alarmist carbon hysteria.  The public is getting tired of being jerked around in this manner.  Why are not climate scientists themselves tired of being jerked around?  Why are not world governments tired of being jerked around?  Why is not the media tired of being jerked around?

That is like asking why a tort lawyer doesn't object to shoddy research which supports his case.  When the payout is big enough, corrupt persons will swallow a truckload of crappy data.

Geez Al - tell us what you really think and please don't hold back.

More people are starting to understand the AGW fraud but the depth of the brainwashing is very interesting. I encounter people every week who are otherwise skeptical and intelligent who take the position that the climate data can only be understood by "climate scientists" and therefore abandon even trying to understand on their own.

Thus, they bow to the higher authority. Someone could do a whole series of posts of which higher authorities people on the right and left are inclined to bow to.

I couldn't have said it better myself. It's amazing what people will accept as fact when it supports their case.
