NOAA Climategate Ground Zero

Temperatures rose rapidly with the station dropout

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) dropped 75% of the world’s stations and did not recalculate the whole range on the lower number stations. Researchers deliberately dropped out many of the stations with cooler temperatures and improperly manipulated data to make it appear that temperatures in the 20th century rose faster than they actually did. With surface based data sets so seriously flawed how can they be trusted for climate trends or model forecasts? Do you believe the recent statement below, bearing in mind that the NOAA seems to be a data gatherer/gatekeeper for NASA and CRU?

“The US space agency also found that 2009 was the second-warmest year on record since modern temperature measurements began in 1880.”

“NOAA appears to play a key role as a data gatherer/gatekeeper for the global data centers at NASA and CRU. Programmer E.M. Smith’s analysis of NOAA’s GHCN found they systematically eliminated 75% of the world’s stations with a clear bias towards removing higher latitude, high altitude and rural locations, all of which had a tendency to be cooler. The thermometers in a sense marched towards the tropics, the sea and to airport tarmacs.”
