How the World Temperature “Record” was Manipulated through Dropping of Stations

With the poor placement of stations (91 % of the stations are CRN 3 to 5 = bad to very poor); where they have purposely taken away the urban heat island effect, use huge smoothing radius, the historical “adjustment and tweaking” to cool the past etc.

Not to mention the great slaughter of GHCN stations around 1990 – roughly 63 % of all climate measuring stations were “dropped”. Oddly enough many of them in cold places – Hmmm? Now the number of GHCN stations are back at the same numbers as in 1890.

One often repeated comment/criticism about the climate change conspiracy is "if this is a scam, involving corporations, you would expect them to be against climate change."

It is not so simple. Many in big industry would be against a carbon tax but many in the banking community, those involved in setting up carbon trades, would be FOR the a climate change agenda. Effectively the carbon trading will act as a tax on everything and the beneficiaries will include those that set up the scheme.

At the end of the day big industry will still be protected, getting special exceptions or subsidies, whilst we all have to pay extra taxes. New technology, that may undermine the oil industry and minimise pollution, can still be defeated as it has always been.
