Thoroughly rotten

Another day, another story about fraud in use of temperature records. I would like to be hopeful that this kind of thing matters but despite all the previous environmental hoaxes, every new one seems to be taken just as seriously as all the previous ones. Still, it’s amusing to think of all those saying “it can’t be fraud, because that would require a global conspiracy” while evidence for just that kind of thing keeps popping out of the woodwork…

P.S. Props to the UK Meteorological Office for deciding to try for good data obtained in a known manner. Not that there is any possibility of fraud or bogus “adjustments”!
