Jon Jenkins in today's Australian (6/1/09)
T he warmaholics are fond of using the phrase "official records going back to 1850", but the simple facts are that prior to the 1970s, surface-based temperatures from a few indiscriminate, mostly backyard locations in Europe and the US are fatally corrupted and not in any sense a real record. They are then further doctored by a secret algorithm to account for heat island effects. Reconstructions such as the infamously fraudulent "hockey stick" are similarly unreliable.
Looks like the MSM is being more even-handed lately.
