Yesterday we reported on Dr. Vicky Pope, head of climate change advice at the Met Office, defending the IPCC's temperature data and the consensus that Global Warming is occurring. That time would have been better spent fact-checking her organization's reports. Today a science blogger exposed that a large number of weather stations were being discarded or misused by the Met Office.
“It makes you wonder how many other problems there are in the data,” said John Graham-Cumming, the blogger who spotted the mistakes. “The whole idea of doing science without releasing your data is quite worrying.”
The Met Office recently came under fire after the he BBC chose not to renew their contract with the organization after it failed to predict one of the worst cold snaps that Britain had seen in a decade. Many believe the organization failed to predict it due to the Met Office for having a warming bias.
The article goes on to say that with the corrected data that there was no significant difference in the report, but will that hold up to Phil Jones' recent admission of little to no warming in the past 15 years?
Regardless, the information should be given to the public. If the Climategate scandals have taught us anything it is that enthusiasts like Stephen McIntrye, Ross McKitrick, and now John Graham-Cumming serve as the best peer-review process.
