    Unbelievable.
    We are shortly coming up on the 25th anniversary of Hansen’s testimony to Congress in 1988.

    He has now wasted (at least) a quarter of a century on this frolic – and still his only work product is to sit in a dimly-lit room, hunched over a computer – manipulating data like a thief in the night.
    What goes on in his mind? What kind of person would waste the better part of a working lifetime fabricating such an enormous house of cards?
    Doesn’t he realise that one day he is either going to drop dead or retire – and that eventually some sane person is going to go through all his dross and realise the enormity of the fraud?
    It obviously doesn’t seem to bother him that future generations will spit on the ground at the mention of his name.

    I knew they’d tampered with Alice Springs!! I never thought they’d be that corrupt.

    Michael Crichton’s book State of Fear had Alice Springs as an example of no temperature change despite CO2 rising. The centre of hot Australia. If heating is gonna show up it would show up there and it didn’t until these fraudsters tampered with the data in the last 2 years.

    How they sleep at night beats me!

    I believe Hansen has “earned” a few tidy millions with his complicity. And he gets a few TV interviews, when otherwise he’s just another faceless Homer Simpson. NRO posted a good video …. this guy’s (Zubrin’s) voice and expressions are a bit odd, but his message is right on.

      Jan apparently posted a couple of links related to the methodology. I was wondering whether you had any comment on them? Having said that, I wait with bated breath for Jan’s answer to your last question in that comment.

    GISS has an deeply clever sense of humor. Case in point are the TOBS adjustments. Look at the trend. Look at it. The TOBS trend is hilarious!

    Because there is no rational process by which one can reach the conclusion that those
    in the 1920s fudged the measurements worse than those
    in the 1930s, who fudged the measurements worse than those
    in the 1940s, who fudged the measurements worse than those
    in the 1950s, who fudged the measurements worse than those
    in the 1960s, who fudged the measurements worse than those
    in the 1970s, who fudged the measurements worse than those
    in the 1980s, who fudged the measurements worse than those
    in the 1990s…

    As Larry the Cable guy would say, “I don’t care who you are, that’s funny right there.”

    Alice Springs is set in a striking landscape – like most inland locations in the sub-tropics it gets damn hot in summer over 40 C regularly and damn cold in winter.

    It did that in 1977 when I worked there and today’s reported temperatures I see on the news do not seem much different.
