Met Office to re-examine150 years of data in

4 posts in this topic

The Met Office is to re-examine more than 150 years of temperature data after public trust in climate science was shattered by the Climategate email scandal.

It says that the reanalysis, which was approved at a conference in Turkey earlier this week, is 'timely' and it does not expect it to reach a hugely different conclusion about the impact of global warming.

But the reassessment by an international group of experts will be seen by many as a tacit admission that its previous reports have been tainted by its association with the University of East Anglia's disgraced Climatic Research Unit.

Since more than 1,000 emails and documents were leaked from the unit in November the public's belief in global warming has plummeted from 41 per cent to 26 per cent.

Unless they take into account the issues with their current temperature collection method of "averaging" a temperature of one location from hundreds of miles away, release all data for scrutiny and then use only this new data to backup their claims then they're not going to regain public trust all that much.

Climategate? Seriously? That's just embarrassing...

Mate, if we did that in the UK, we'd have 2 stations. We don't we have hundreds.
