When files were released from Britain’s climate research centre the corruption of climate science was obvious. Now repercussions are being felt around the globe as other jurisdictions suspect manipulation of climate science data. One example is New Zealand.
The New Zealand Government’s chief climate advisory unit NIWA is under fire for allegedly massaging raw climate data to show a global warming trend that wasn’t there.
The scandal breaks as fears grow worldwide that corruption of climate science is not confined to just Britain’s CRU climate research centre.
In New Zealand’s case, the figures published on NIWA’s [the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric research] website suggest a strong warming trend in New Zealand over the past century:
But analysis of the raw climate data from the same temperature stations has just turned up a very different result:
Gone is the relentless rising temperature trend, and instead there appears to have been a much smaller growth in warming, consistent with the warming up of the planet after the end of the Little Ice Age in 1850.

Freedom of information requests in the United States have been filed seeking reasons behind the temperature “adjustments” in that country. It’s hard to see an end to what started in Britain.
