[When I discuss Global Warming with Alarmists, I frequently ask, “If their case is so strong, then why do they need to resort to lying?” This article is one of several – as a result of a whistle blower in a government agency – dealing with the regular practice at NOAA, GISS, GHCN, and other climate data agencies of manipulating and adjusting historical data in inappropriate ways to lower older readings in order to show a stronger uptrend in the dataset. In other words, they LIE! While I would be satisfied if President Trump merely can end the Global Warming hysteria coming out of taxpayer funded agencies, if it were up to me, the liars would go to jail. – Bob]

The disclosures by Dr. Bates concerning Karl’s ‘Pausebuster’ NOAA NCEI paper have created quite the climate kerfuffle, with Rep. Smith even renewing his NOAA email subpoena demands. Yet the Karl paper actually is fairly innocuous by comparison to other NOAA shenanigans. It barely removed the pause, and still shows the CMIP5 models running hot by comparison. Its importance was mainly political talking point pause-busting in the run up to Paris.
Here is an example of something more egregious but less noticed. It is excerpted from much longer essay When Data Isn’t in ebook Blowing Smoke. It is not global, concerning only the continental United States (CONUS). But it is eye opening and irrefutable.
