Yeah, the warming trend that was shown for the past decade doesn't exist. The data is skewed.
Analysis of data from the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA) show ‘corrections’ to climate data may have exaggerated temperature increases over the last 10 years.Here's the fudged data in a graphic.
Here's the actual data. It doesn't show a temperature increase.
More fudged data leading to bullshit conclusions. The New Zealand Climate Science Coalition concludes by saying:
In a statement, the coalition said, “We have discovered that the warming in New Zealand over the past 156 years was indeed man-made, but it had nothing to do with emissions of CO2—it was created by man-made adjustments of the temperature. It’s a disgrace.”They're right, it is a disgrace.
