Via Watts Up with That:
"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.
But Does it?
Watts UP notes:
"Straight away you can see there’s no slope—either up or down. The temperatures are remarkably constant way back to the 1850s. Of course, the temperature still varies from year to year, but the trend stays level—statistically insignificant at 0.06°C per century since 1850. Putting these two graphs side by side, you can see huge differences. What is going on? Why does NIWA’s graph show strong warming, but graphing their own raw data looks completely different? Their graph shows warming, but the actual temperature readings show none whatsoever! Have the readings in the official NIWA graph been adjusted?
Make no mistake that this is a huge scandal and is unraveling faster than Obama's plan for the economy. Again the question is whether or not lawsuits will be filed by those who have been harmed by this junked and now officially debunked science.
This is a good post about about the monetary scam of Global Warming and who stands to gain by the nearly 45 trillion dollar windfall over the next few years.
"Some more pieces of the “How Al Gore is Going to Become Amazingly Wealthy by Selling Climate Hysteria” puzzle came together Friday when the Silicon Valley venture capital firm he’s now a part of announced a $500 million investment in green technologies.
Making matters more delicious, the firm already has investments in many of the same companies Gore admitted in March he has a stake in.
To begin untangling this web, let’s first take a gander at what was reported Friday by the San Francisco Chronicle (emphasis added): Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers said Thursday it will invest $500 million in green technology companies that have passed their earliest stages of growth and are maturing.
The venture capital firm also will invest in green-tech startup companies as part of another investment fund it introduced Thursday, which will invest $700 million over the next three years in startups.
For those that have forgotten, this is the same VC group Gore joined last November as reported by NewsBusters.
Here’s where the plot thickens. The KPCB website identified the following companies this group has already invested in: Altarock Energy Inc, Altra Biofuels, Amyris Biotechnologies, Ausra, Bloom Energy, GreatPoint Energy, Mascoma Corporation, and Miasole."Of course at the helm is Al Gore who may well become the new Maddof driving the largest scam in history.
