NASA's Hansen: Fraud on Global Warming Data

Headless posts what should be the final condemnation of Fraudster Hansen.

I really assumed that their mathematical "corrections" systematically revised the temperature data based on some logical assumptions. Instead, we learn from Anthony Watts that statistical analysis provides evidence that Hansen and his crew are hand editing the data. You really can't make this stuff up.

David Stockwell has analyzed the frequency of the final digits in the temperature data by NASA’s GISS led by James Hansen, and he claims that the unequal distribution of the individual digits strongly suggests that the data have been modified by a human hand.

With Mathematica 7, such hypotheses take a few minutes to be tested. And remarkably enough, I must confirm Stockwell’s bold assertion.

Not that anyone will pay attention...

I think it was Hansen who published an article last November with the headline, "Hottest October on Record". Then some blogger discovered the data he used for October was actually from September.

I'm paying attention. I love to see the acolytes of the AGW religion squirm.
