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.
Agency officials admit that the problem with instruments recording low temperatures likely happened in several locations throughout Australia, but they refuse to admit to manipulating temperature readings. The BOM located missing logs in Goulburn and the Snow Mountains, both of which are in New South Wales.
Marohasey claimed at the time that BOM’s adjusted temperature records are “propaganda” and not science. She analyzed raw temperature data from places across Australia, compared them to BOM data, and found the agency’s data created an artificial warming trend.
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.

Hey look! Those scientists over there lied to us about this very subject. They falsified data to make us believe this consensus thing and its predictions were coming true.
But pay no attention to the lying scientists in the land down under.
They're just Australians, and we all know Australians are weird.
I'm pretty sure the rest of the those scientists would *never* lie to us ... right?

In the mean time Earths temp is on the rise. Paris Climate accord only has a 5% chance of making its goal. It doesn't matter what Australia did or did not do. Of coarse those of you who are going to believe the mere 10% of climate scientist who say global warming is not real, or the other 90% who do say its real. The 90% or the 10%...hmmmm, I think again I will go with the 90% Both facts here are your links.
