“Met office pushes a surface temperature data “do over”. Anthony lays the ground for rejecting a proposed re-processing of global raw surface temperature data by Britain’s Meteorological Office. I suspect that the only temperature records Anthony likes are the ones that suit his purpose.
While the administrative issues and contractual blockages that surround the global raw surface temperature data have been known for years, the overall usefulness of that data to scientists remains unchanged. But of course right-wing bloggers and media are reporting this proposed clean-up as a capitulation due to the “Climategate” conspiracy accusations.
