 Hi all,
Can someone please explain to me what happened to the NOAA data that is discussed in this link? This does not look like conformational bias, unless you want to say that NOAA is guilty of conformational bias? Did this data indead change on the NOAA climate data center? If a change occured, is there an explanation as to why the change occured and an archive of the older data included in the climate data center? 
I know folks get all excited about the politics of climate change, but as scientists we need to be very transparent.

Here is another possible example of conformation bias. Looks like this 
controversy will be with us for a while. Gene
