Professor Friedrich-Karl Ewert, a retired geologist and data expert examined publicly available archived temperature records from 1,153 weather stations around the globe going back to 1881 and found evidence of what Ewert called "massive" tampering by GISS between 2010 and 2012. Read the study:
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.
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.
...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.
But, The Motley Monk duly notes, he is squarely on the opposite side of Pope Francis concerning this issue. Similar to those who worship at the altar of environmentalism, the Holy Father believes the "man-made" climate change hypothesis. (NOTE: Not "human-made," because men are the cause of the problem).
And, yes, it is true: Pope Francis has begun to lower the Vatican's carbon footprint:
- The Vatican's Nativity scene and Tannenbaum are now "green" with state-of-the-art LED lighting.
- The Pope has also partnered with the World Bank to launch his "Year of Mercy" initiative with a "green" light show.
Now, if only those who worship at the altar of environmentalism can prevail by gettting the Vatican to accept the "science" associated with their sexual and reproductive strategy for achieving the UN's Millennium Development Goals to improve maternal health, promote gender equality, and reduce poverty.
