Oops! Now New Zealand NIWA Accused Of Faking Data

From Anthony Watts[1] through a report from the Climate Science Coalition of New Zealand[2], we find some more climate alarmist chicanery

The New Zealand Government’s chief climate advisory unit NIWA is under fire for allegedly massaging raw climate data to show a global warming trend that wasn’t there.

The scandal breaks as fears grow worldwide that corruption of climate science is not confined to just Britain’s CRU climate research centre.

In New Zealand’s case, the figures published on NIWA’s [the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric research] website suggest a strong warming trend in New Zealand over the past century:

The figure they released

But, taking a look at the real, raw data, we get

As Anthony points out

Gone is the relentless rising temperature trend, and instead there appears to have been a much smaller growth in warming, consistent with the warming up of the planet after the end of the Little Ice Age in 1850.

The house of cards is falling, climate alarmists. It will be interesting to see what happens when NASA and the Goddard Center are forced to release their raw data. Look, we “skeptics” and “deniers” do not deny that there has been warming since the end of the Little Ice Age. We deny that Mankind is mostly, or solely, responsible for it, and, if you were really interested in real science, rather then agenda based science, you would have our same opinion. You’ve created a tenuous link between CO2 release and rising temps, and, when that didn’t pan out fully, what with the cooler years, you started calling it climate change, to somehow hide how the release of greenhouse gasses, things that hold in, to put it imprecisely, heat, can cause a decline or stagnant temps. You’ve faked links to all around, such as with Mt. Kilimanjaro. Perhaps it’s time for you to be honest, and get interested in real science, eh?

Meanwhile, it appears that several of the gents involved in the ClimateGate emails might have broken laws[3].
