WEB Notes: You may recall the email scandal from 2009 where climate data was manipulated on a global level. This is simply a repeat on a much smaller level. It is pretty sad when you have to lie to support your own argument.
Australian scientists at the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) ordered a review of temperature recording instruments after the government agency was caught tampering with temperature logs in several locations.
Agency officials admit that the problem with instruments recording low temperatures likely happened in several locations throughout Australia, but they refuse to admit to manipulating temperature readings. The BOM located missing logs in Goulburn and the Snow Mountains, both of which are in New South Wales.
