In an article featured in the Australian (and available for free from the GWPF), skeptical biologist and former conservative "think tank" member, Jennifer Marohasy, accused the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) of adjusting past temperature records to make the present seem hotter. Her accusation seems to mirror Tony Heller's recent claim — which politifact gave its "pants on fire" rating — that scientists fudged the NOAA/NASA temperature record.
Brietbart and the Daily Caller dutifully parrot Marohasy's story and her completely baseless accusations that updating temperature records is in fact "a propaganda technique." In grandiose fashion, Marohasy directly references Orwell's classic Nineteen Eighty-Four and accuses the BoM of deleting data, exaggerating and using half-truths.
The BoM explains the homogenization process is necessary to address issues like "thermometers housed in a beer crate on an outback veranda" and is well supported by the scientific literature. But this isn't good enough for Marohasy, who insists on calling routine scientific process "data corruption."
