A German scientist has accused the
National Aeronautics and Space Agency's (NASA) Goddard Institute of Space Studies (GISS) of altering
temperature records between 2010 and 2012 to produce the illusion
that the Earth has been 'warming' since 1950.
GISS datasets are used by
the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)
presentation at the 2012 EIKE
Climate Conference in Germany, Professor Friedrich-Karl Ewert,
a retired geologist and data expert from the
of Paderborn, said that he examined publicly available archived
temperature records from 1,153 weather stations around the globe
going back to 1881 and found evidence of "massive" tampering by GISS
between 2010 and 2012.
Ewert noticed that,
"the temperature data
of Reykjavik [Iceland] and Nuuk Nuur [Greenland] had been changed
retroactively," veteran German television journalist Gunter
The 2012 data was higher than the temperatures recorded
The German scientist then randomly
selected 120 weather stations around the world and manually compared
archived data to GISS' 2012 temperature records.
"He always came to the same
conclusion: The temperature supplied from 2012 showed a higher
warming than the published [archived data] in 2010," Ederer
Ewert also found that since 1881, four
distinct cooling stages have alternated with three warming phases.
He says the Earth is currently in a cooling phase.
And since a stronger warming
cycle occurred before carbon dioxide emissions began to rise, Ewert
"an influence of our CO2
emissions [on] temperatures can not be seen."

"Mankind always knew that constantly
there are climate changes," according to a
translation of Ewert's EIKE article. "The parable of the
seven fat and seven lean years [is] an indication."
Ewert also claims to have found 10
different statistical methods used by NASA-GISS to change the
overall trend from cooling to warming.
"Between the years 2010 and 2012 the
data measured since 1881 were altered so that they showed a
significant warming, especially after 1950…
A comparison of the
data from 2010 with the data of 2012 shows that NASA-GISS had
altered its own datasets so that especially after WWII, a clear
warming appears - although it never existed," Ederer writes.
"Using the NASA data from 2010 the
surface temperature globally from 1940 until today has fallen by
1.110°C, and since 2000 it has fallen 0.4223°C…
The cooling has
hit every continent except for Australia, which warmed by
0.6339°C since 2000.
The figures for Europe: From 1940 to 2010,
using the data from 2010, there was a cooling of 0.5465°C and a
cooling of 0.3739°C since 2000."
"an entire industry of air rescuers
and the resulting trillions of dollars that are so invested [in
deindustrialization] are at stake," Ederer adds that "the thesis
of man-made global warming has taken on a whole new meaning:
Yes, it is always made by people when the data are adjusted to
fit the theory."
