    The Australian Darwin example is spreading swiftly through the climategate debate. Here we see the clear manipulation of data to result in a pre-determined trend. One must conclude that such manipulation runs rampant throughout the climate models that were passed off as "sound science" for so many years, and that the entire premise of global warming has been terribly corrupted...

    The Darwin information is proving instrumental in more far-reaching studies being done on raw data comparisons where available. New Zealand is undergoing a recent scandal of manipulated data by their own government climate agency (NIWA). A paper from 1980 shows that the temperature readings were corrupted long before global warming became the international issue it transformed into once the dire claims of an impending Ice Age died down...

    NZ Study may hold key to faulty world temp data
    A long-forgotten scientific paper on temperature trends in New Zealand may be the smoking gun on temperature manipulation worldwide.

    Since Climategate first broke, we've seen scandal over temperature adjustments by NZ's National Institute of Water and Atmospheric research, NIWA, which in turn prompted a fresh look at raw temperature data from Darwin and elsewhere.

    Now, a study published in the NZ Journal of Science back in 1980 reveals weather stations at the heart of NIWA's claims of massive warming were shown to be unreliable and untrustworthy by a senior Met Office climate scientist 30 years ago, long before global warming became a politically charged issue.

    The story is published in tonight's TGIF Edition, and has international ramifications.

    That's because the study's author, former Met Office Auckland director Jim Hessell, found a wide range of problems with Stevenson Screen temperature stations and similar types of unit.

    Hessell debunked a claim that New Zealand was showing a 1C warming trend between 1940 and 1980, saying the sites showing the biggest increases were either urbanized and suffering from urban heat island effect, or they were faulty Stevenson Screen installations prone to showing hotter than normal temperatures because of their design and location.
