Raw Temperature Data Sets Needed

There is a huge amount of money at stake in the climate change debate. As warmers and skeptics debate more and more facts and science is revealed. A key factor in the debates come down to whether or not temperature is actually changing. A new citizen driven effort is now underway and help from more citizens is needed.

Citizen Project

Frank Lansner is collecting raw data sets of temperature data to compare to data being reported post adjustment. His effort is to collect raw temperature data sets before adjustments are applied. He reports on his current success and failure here: Original Temperatures: Summary.

His preliminary analysis from the data he could obtain shows definite trends in how temperature data is being used and reported. Simply said, any data that would suggest cooling is ignored by most government agencies and government funded universities.

If you have access to historical raw temperature measurement data sets, get in touch with Frank Lansner. Those data sets are needed to find the truth.

Why is this needed?

If temperature is consistently changing in relation to some human activity, it would be important to know that. Skeptics do not trust those with an agenda to explain why we should give up modern life and our living standards to pay them enormous sums. Government officials tend to live very well at our expense now.

  1. “Collecting the data sets and making them public removes anyone’s ability to lie about what is being reported.” Well, except for the bias’ and honesty of the people providing the data sets.
    I also suspect that private data sets of longer than 20 years are not common. Anything less than that is pretty much meaningless since local variability overwhelms the long term trend.

    • The data sets extend back into the 1800’s and are commonly available in various formats from paper to electronic. The only challenge is getting access to them. Governments really do keep tons of information forever.

      Those that have the raw data sets wanted are people that have access to the original records. These are usually lower level people not caught up on the political propaganda battle. For instance the Park rangers in Death Valley that dug out the original paper records on the all time high temp for DV. People like Fred are used to validating the data for spoofs and hoaxes. Numerous discrepancies were noted in the DV paper records and resolved. All of that work was published along with the reasoning for decisions and naming of sources. So, getting the data out and vetting is not the worry. Citizens can do this. That doesn’t mean their won’t be people that try to fake things. But, a rational person can sort things out and there are those that will stand up for the truth.
