A high-profile whistleblower from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has recently exposed that the organization has allegedly published set of manipulated data to advance a political agenda by hiding the global warming pause. It was found that retired principal scientist of the National Climatic Data Center, John Bates was the one who accused the lead author of the 2015 NOAA in their so-called "pause buster" report of trying to discredit the hiatus through flagrant manipulation of scientific integrity guidelines and scientific publication standards.
Did NOAA Manipulate Global Warming Data?
In one of his statements revealed by Breitbart News, Bates has revealed that NOAA has reportedly bypassed its own protocol by never subjecting the report to NOAA's strict internal evaluation process. Rather, NOAA superiors rushed the study through in a blatant attempt to intensify the impact of the paper on the Paris meeting on climate change, he said. It was found that the "pause buster" report that has been produced by NOAA in 2015 was actually based on two new sets of temperature data, consequently, both of which turned out to be flawed.
Moreover, as of the press time, NOAA has now decided to replace the sea temperature dataset just 18 months after it was issued, because it apparently used unreliable methods which overstated the speed of warming. Additionally, the retired principal scientist said that Thomas Karl, the lead author of the paper allegedly insisted on decisions and scientific choices that maximized warming and minimized documentation.
The World On Climate Change
Meanwhile, as per The Washington Times, Karl has reportedly admitted the data had not been archived when the paper was published. However, he has highly emphasized the fact that it was not trying to influence the climate summit. He added that he was not rushing to get the paper out in time for Paris, claiming that there was no discussion about the Paris agreement that took place.
