Adolf has followed with interest the unfolding schemozzle which is the emerging junk science of the Global Warmensisers at CRU, NASA and NIWA.
There has been a series of blog dissertations showing exampls in which raw climate data has been altered (homogenised) to turn a decline into an increase. (Funnily enough the two most striking examples thus far happen to be Australia and Alaska. By the time we get half way through the alphabet John Key will be able to repeal his damn fool ETS without fear.)
Adolf has a challenge for all fundamentalist warmists like this one.
Find me just ten weather stations in the world where the raw data showed a steady trend or an increase over this past twenty years and which after your beloved homogenising (altering) has turned into a decline. After all, that's your only real defense against accusations that you have cooked the books.
When you do, Adolf will present you with a bottle of his favorite Penfolds Bin 389 - worth about $45 retail.
Adolf's spies tell him the tax avoidance industry has taken interest in climategate. Apparently at least one enterprising accountant has suggested to IRD that his clients repairs and maintenance expenditure is not excessive. It's just that the capital expenditure has been homogenised.
