A new peer-reviewed study on global warming could be huge for so-called “climate change deniers,” finding that “nearly all” temperature datasets have been manipulated.
Glenn Beck, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere looked at the new study on Monday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.”
The study titled “On the Validity of NOAA, NASA and Hadley CRU Global Average Surface Temperature Data and the Validity of EPA’s CO2 Endangerment Finding” examined how Global Average Surface Temperature data is gathered. GAST datasets are adjusted after temperatures are recorded to account for “contamination” in urban areas and other issues, and climate change skeptics have questioned those methods in the past.
The researchers used historical data and known cyclical patterns to weigh whether or not the temperature adjustments were factual and found that “the three GAST data sets are not a valid representation of reality.”
If you compare the 1980 chart and the 2015 chart, it shows that global temperatures only appear to be rising because GAST data has been manipulated, Stu explained.
“You’re talking, you know, almost all the warming is because of this,” Stu said.
“Because of the adjustments,” Pat added.
