By any reasonable measure the Global Warming Alarmists’ predictions have been utter failures. Their solution: Monkey with the data. Robert Tracinski reports
A lot of us having been pointing out one of the big problems with the global warming theory: a long plateau in global temperatures since about 1998. Most significantly, this leveling off was not predicted by the theory, and observed temperatures have been below the lowest end of the range predicted by all of the computerized climate models. So what to do if your theory doesn’t fit the data? Why, change the data, of course! Hence a blockbuster new report: a new analysis of temperature data since 1998 “adjusts” the numbers and magically finds that there was no plateau after all.
