The UEA’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU) was forced to reveal the loss following requests for the data under Freedom of Information legislation
SCIENTISTS at the University of East Anglia (UEA) have admitted throwing away much of the raw temperature data on which their predictions of global warming are based.
It means that other academics are not able to check basic calculations said to show a long-term rise in temperature over the past 150 years.
The data were gathered from weather stations around the world and then adjusted to take account of variables in the way they were collected. The revised figures were kept, but the originals — stored on paper and magnetic tape — were dumped to save space when the CRU moved to a new building.

Did you see Presidential 'tool', Gibbs try and poo-poo all concerns by saying, "There’s no real scientific basis for the dispute of Climate Change."... ~Yea especially when they throw data away. DUH!

If you look at some of the reports over the last 10 years, you will see that some scientists continually revise their reports and lower the temperatures from past years. That makes it look like the current temperatures are higher.
And Carpy is right, they move their temperature gauges into warmer locations, like asphalt parking lots, in order to skew the results. They were caught red-handed doing this. If the guage has been moved, the results are usless, baseless data.

Interesting. Instead of keeping important data that would help determine the validity of the global warming farce was dumped in and effort to safe space? I think not. More likely that this data contained an 'inconvenient truth' that those pushing this agenda can't afford to be revealed.
