They won't, but they should be.
A high-level whistleblower has told this newspaper that America’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) breached its own rules on scientific integrity when it published the sensational but flawed report, aimed at making the maximum possible impact on world leaders including Barack Obama and David Cameron at the UN climate conference in Paris in 2015.
Lots of information here, I'm going to borrow two parts. First,
But Dr Bates said this increase in
temperatures was achieved by dubious means. Its key error was an upwards
‘adjustment’ of readings from fixed and floating buoys, which are
generally reliable, to bring them into line with readings from a much
more doubtful source – water taken in by ships. This, Dr Bates
explained, has long been known to be questionable: ships are themselves
sources of heat, readings will vary from ship to ship, and the depth of
water intake will vary according to how heavily a ship is laden – so
affecting temperature readings.
Bates said: ‘They had good data from buoys. And they threw it out and
“corrected” it by using the bad data from ships. You never change good
data to agree with bad, but that’s what they did – so as to make it look
as if the sea was warmer.’
‘adjusted’ buoy readings up by 0.12C. It also ignored data from
satellites that measure the temperature of the lower atmosphere, which
are also considered reliable. Dr Bates said he gave the paper’s
co-authors ‘a hard time’ about this, ‘and they never really justified
what they were doing.’
That's flat-out fraud.
Dr Bates revealed that the failure to
archive and make available fully documented data not only violated NOAA
rules, but also those set down by Science. Before he retired last year,
he continued to raise the issue internally. Then came the final
bombshell. Dr Bates said: ‘I learned that the computer used to process
the software had suffered a complete failure.’
reason for the failure is unknown, but it means the Pausebuster paper
can never be replicated or verified by other scientists.
They didn't back-up the data? Seriously? If so, they're idiots. Or did they dump it so nobody could audit it?
Expect Bates to be labeled as 'bought-off by Big Oil!' and/or "not a REAL scientist" by the warmerists.
