Stop the world… scientist to investigate scientist to see if scientist lied about science*

*paraphrased – but essentially correct.

An international panel of scientists will today launch a major inquiry to discover whether official world temperature records have exaggerated the extent of global warming

Hey, someone filled the trough with more money. ?This time to discover how-come the first load of trough money didn’t product accurate results.

The panel, convened by the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF), the ?climate sceptic? think-tank led by the former Tory Chancellor Lord Lawson, will focus on thousands of ?adjustments? that have been made to temperature records kept at individual weather stations around the world.

Sceptics have argued that the effect of such adjustments ? made when instruments are replaced or recalibrated, or heat-producing buildings are erected close to weather station sites ? has skewed the records.

Either you accept the calibration of the instrument or you ignore all the data it produces. ?To adjust any reading, up or down, is to guess. ?A reading is a reading.

The question is, do the adjustments balance each other out?? he asked. ?Do they make half the stations a little warmer, and half a little cooler, or is there evidence of bias?

?It may turn out there is no problem. It may that there is.?

He said the panel?s work would be ?transparent?, with all data made available though a public website.

As I said – it’s a trough full of money. ?Nothing useful will come of it.

One thing I can state with confidence: ?climate models have all overestimated the effects of “global warming”, or climate change, if you must. ?Not a single one was accurate or predicted something less than what actually happened.

If climate scientists were political pollsters, they’d be out of a job. ?But now they’ve scored a job to investigate why they weren’t very good at the job to start with.

There’s something in the back of my mind screaming at me that this is a stupid thing to do…
