The Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) scientists tampered with instruments recording low temperatures in several locations, according to some scientists. The Bureau isn’t admitting they manipulated the temperatures but the results always came out in favor of dramatic global warming when the results showed slight cooling.
They did acknowledge there was a problem.
Meteorologist Lance Pidgeon watched the 13 degrees Fahrenheit Goulburn recording from July 2 disappear from the bureau’s website. The temperature readings fluctuated briefly and then disappeared from the government’s website, Daily Caller reported.
Bureaus Chief Executive Andrew Johnson told Australian Environment Minister Josh Frydenberg that the failure to record the low temperatures at Goulburn in early July was due to faulty equipment.
Marohasy told reporters that Johnson’s claims are nearly impossible to believe given that there are screen shots that show the very low temperatures before being “quality assured” out. It could take several weeks before the equipment is eventually tested, reviewed and ready for service, Johnson said, according to The Daily Caller.
She also said at the time that BOM’s adjusted temperature records are “propaganda” and not science. She analyzed raw temperature data from places across Australia, compared them to BOM data, and found the agency’s data created an artificial warming trend.
Marohasey said BOM adjustments changed Aussie temperature records from a slight cooling trend to one of “dramatic warming” over the past century.
Despite these discrepancies, Australia’s abc news is reporting that this past July was the hottest ever recorded.
A BOM report released today shows the country’s average July temperature was at its highest in more than 100 years of weather recording, they reported.
There was no mention of the problematic readings. Newspapers that do report the discrepancies emphasize the Bureau’s claims that they didn’t change temperatures except for necessary adjustments.
