When I sometimes watch the weather on the news, they give the dates of historical highs and lows for the day -- and usually the record high dates were from decades ago. However I knew other parts of the country were much warmer, so I sort of shrugged it off and believed they were working with correct data.
Now I'm reading an article that says it might pay to be skeptical of such claims, so I wanted to mention it here. While this blog may be called "tax honesty", and I haven't actually posted much about taxes here, it's all part of the same pattern. Some (many) people find it nearly impossible to believe that those in positions of authority would intentionally lie to them.
Here's a link to the article, titled:
Now, in what might be the largest scientific fraud ever uncovered, NASA and the NOAA have been caught red-handed altering historical temperature data to produce a “climate change narrative” that defies reality. This finding, originally documented on the Real Science website, is detailed here. We now know that historical temperature data for the continental United States were deliberately altered by NASA and NOAA scientists in a politically-motivated attempt to rewrite history and claim global warming is causing U.S. temperatures to trend upward. The data actually show that we are in a cooling trend, not a warming trend (see charts below).
