Adjustments

What do you do if a land based temperature sensor is moved from a greenfield site to an urban one, surrounded by buildings and asphalt that are bound to raise temperatures? Easy. You adjust the temperatures, and that's what NASA's GISS institute did.

They adjusted the temperature history so the past records, from the cooler greenfield site became even cooler, and the more recent measurements remained unaltered.

Forgive me for repeating myself, but this stuff goes far beyond inept. It's crooked.
