More Science

A very interesting attitude towards science, offered up by a climate "researcher" asked for his data:

We have 25 or so years invested in the work. Why should I make the data available to you, when your aim is to try and find something wrong with it. There is IPR to consider.

Ah, yes, that's how science is supposed to work. Refuse to share your data with potential skeptics and critics. That's the way to make sure your research is as accurate unchallenged as possible.

The refusal in question seems to regard the "adjustments" climate "scientists" frequently perform on the raw data, adjustments which almost always work in favor of reducing past temperatures and elevating fresher readings. (Whereas random chance would suggest that adjustments should go up or down about half the time for either group of readings.)

For some reason, those pushing global warming are very reluctant to share their "adjustments" -- how much they're adjusting, how frequently, and why.

We also know that the raw data of satellite temperature readings show no warming the past decade, and very little warming over the past 30 years.

But raw data must be "adjusted," of course. And when it's so "adjusted," gee, suddenly the earth is getting warmer.
