Here is a preliminary report by Joseph D’Aleo. Here is a quote:
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.
The article is the result of data programmers finally being allowed to see how these organizations have come to their conclusions about global warming. The point for me is the linkage between the leaked emails, the relationship in timing with Copenhagen and now the intense pressure to communicate to us that nothing has been revealed. I was walking by a science classroom at Chester High while subbing listening to the film narrator talk of the dangers of manmade global warming. I wonder if the younger generation knows or even cares.
