On Monday, Nasa's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), which is run by Al Gore's chief scientific ally, Dr James Hansen, and is one of four bodies responsible for monitoring global temperatures, announced that last month was the hottest October on record.
...So what explained the anomaly? GISS's computerised temperature maps seemed to show readings across a large part of Russia had been up to 10 degrees higher than normal. But when expert readers of the two leading warming-sceptic blogs, Watts Up With That and Climate Audit, began detailed analysis of the GISS data they made an astonishing discovery. The reason for the freak figures was that scores of temperature records from Russia and elsewhere were not based on October readings at all. Figures from the previous month had simply been carried over and repeated two months running.
That unfortunately is not the worst of it. The worst is that having been caught with fake figures they immediately engaged in another "accidental" fraud to try to keep them:
...to compensate for the lowered temperatures in Russia, GISS claimed to have discovered a new "hotspot" in the Arctic - in a month when satellite images were showing Arctic sea-ice recovering so fast from its summer melt that three weeks ago it was 30 per cent more extensive than at the same time last year.
That actually makes it a 3rd example of the highest standard of honesty to which he aspires/a lie since McIntyre did disprove the whole warming thesis a couple of years ago by showing that his claim the 1998 was was the warmest year on record had also been achieved by faking figures, 1933 was.
I'll also ignore his claim to Congress 20 years ago 20 years ago that temperatures would be 1 degree up by now since he obviously couldn't have known for certain at the time that they would be unchanged.
On the other hand I won't ignore the BBC's claim in their fascist "Climate Wars" propaganda programme that Hansen had been correct since they certainly knew that this was not so.
If BBC or indeed any other organisation on the alarmist side wishes to even appear to be, in some way, honest then they will, quite certainly, immediately be reporting this with all the enthusiasm that they have reported all these "Global warming is reported to be worse than previously suggested" stories. My personal bet is that the BBC, ITN & almost all the press will, once again, confirm that they are wholly corrupt fascist liars. In turn this means that absolutely nobody on the warming side who is in any way honest will fail to publicly dissociate themselves from all of them - however since virtually nobody on that side possesses the slightest trace of honesty it follows there will be no significant denouncements.
The refusal to report these lies is much more important than the lies themselves. Like fish in water the warming alarmists can only survive such repeated disproofs of their lies when they swim in a sea of media liars.

which shows your source to be largely invention.
"Some numbers ended up in the wrong column in a table. And the error was quickly detected and corrected. This should increase your confidence in the data, not raise a "huge question mark".
Which does not mention that the "quick detection" was not made by Hansen & co but by Messrs McIntyre & Watts - which should indeed increase confidence but not in Hansen & his paid liars but, fairly obviously, in Messrs McIntyre & Watts.
