Global Warming Alarmists Adjusted Raw Temperature Data and Then Threw It Away - Now It's Trust Us

From Best of the Web Wall Street Journal Monday, November 30, 2009; see

From The Sunday Times November 29, 2009 "Climate change data dumped" at

"Scientists at the University of East Anglia (UEA) have admitted throwing away much of the raw temperature data on which their predictions of global warming are based.
It means that other academics are not able to check basic calculations said to show a long-term rise in temperature over the past 150 years. . . .
The data were gathered from weather stations around the world and then adjusted to take account of variables in the way they were collected. The revised figures were kept, but the originals--stored on paper and magnetic tape--were dumped to save space when the CRU moved to a new building. . . .
Roger Pielke, professor of environmental studies at Colorado University, discovered data had been lost when he asked for original records. 'The CRU is basically saying, 'Trust us.' So much for settling questions and resolving debates with science,' he said."
