Oops! Now New Zealand NIWA Accused Of Faking Data

From Anthony Watts through a report from the Climate Science Coalition of New Zealand, 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.

    How much real scientific research have the folks at the Climate Science Coalition of New Zealand done, Teach? You claim to want “real science”, but you only listen to non-scientific nonsense. Your arguments largely consist of manipulations, red herrings, hyperbole, conjecture, etc., etc… Where’s the real science here?

    This is a perfect example of how a scientific organization can work diligently on research to understand and share the truth, but all it takes is some deniers a few minutes to take some raw data, simply ignoring all of the scientists’ work, and cause a “controversy”. NIWA has explained their methods ot CSCNZ in the past, but they ignored it, because they want to make a political point. People like you won’t question them, so their non-scientific manipulations get splattered all over teh intertubes. So much for real science…

    For the record, here’s an explanation of how the CSCNZ manipulated data to obtain this graph:


  3. Otter says:

    Well at least reasic admits they manipulated the data.

    What nation’s ‘scientists’ will pop up next, I wonder…

  4. Reasic says:

    Uh… The CSCNZ is the skeptical group, Otter. Have you visited the link I gave, so you can compare the scientific explanation for some of the changes, or are you simply drinking kool-aid again?

  5. Otter says:

    I don’t drink cool-aid. I leave that to the jim-jones-warmist crowd.

    Even the Hadley-CRUD scientists can’t see any way around the cooling that will run into the late 2020s.

  6. reasic says:

    so… u didn’t read it?

  7. Reasic says:

    Hello? Otter? Did you visit the link? Are you ignoring science, and drinking kool-aid, or are you going to read about how the skeptics are the ones who manipulated data? Feel free to debunk if you think it’s wrong.
