View Full Version : Yet another 'climate' organization loses its data: NIWA admits no records kept of 'adjustments'

The National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA) has been urged by the New Zealand Climate Science Coalition (NZCSC) to abandon all of its in-house adjustments to temperature records. This follows an admission by NIWA that it no longer holds the records that would support its in-house manipulation of official temperature readings. In December, NZCSC issued a formal request for the schedule of adjustments under the Official Information Act 1982, specifically seeking copies of “the original worksheets and/or computer records used for the calculations”. On 29 January, NIWA responded that they no longer held any internal records, and merely referred to the scientific literature.

Strange how these records keep disappearing. First CRU loses its data (http://rogerpielkejr.blogspot.com/2009/08/we-lost-original-data.html), now NIWA does.

Who is next? NOAA?
