Australia Weather Bureau Caught Tampering With Climate Numbers
Australian scientists at the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) ordered a review of temperature recording instruments after the government agency was caught tampering with temperature logs in several locations.
The agency has been scrubbing away cold temperatures, to make the averages higher.
This is not the first time the agency had done this. BOM has been put under the microscope before for similar manipulations. The agency was accused in 2014 of tampering with the country’s temperature record to make it appear as if temperatures had warmed over the decades, according to reports in August 2014.
