More AGW data ‘massaging’

Drive-by mopost:

Top story on Memeorandum: Watts Up With That on how ‘creative’ data manipulation techniques revealed warming in New Zealand that wasn’t in the original data.

Related: BBC journalist was sent ClimateGate emails a month before scandal broke; and, flying turkey moment of the day, George Monbiot (the original ‘moonbat’) saying basically: ‘yes, AGW skeptics cheat, but that’s precisely why we should set especially high standards for ourselves’. And:

Some people say that I am romanticising science, that it is never as open and honest as the Popperian ideal. Perhaps. But I know that opaqueness and secrecy are the enemies of science. There is a word for the apparent repeated attempts to prevent disclosure revealed in these emails: unscientific.

Which earns him unexpected praise from Rand Simberg:

We will continue to vehemently disagree on political issues, but henceforth (not that I did it much, or paid him that much attention in general), I shall refrain from calling him George Moonbat. He seems to recognize the damage that these people are doing to his cause, even if they cannot.

Happy Thanksgiving again!
