Australian BOM ‘cools the past’

This is a real scandal. The Australian Bureau of Meterology (BOM) changed the past temperature record twice, ‘cooling the past.’ But, in reality, if you look at their raw official data, it is plain to see that there has been no more hot days in Australia than usual. The data goes back to at least 1910.

The following video reveals how the past Australian temperature record has been ‘cooled’ by at least 1.5 degrees C (or 3 degrees F) in two separate revisions. That means scientists changed the values of past temperature records before the 1990s. The effect is that it artificially makes it appear that the past few decades have been hotter than any decade prior to that time. This gives the appearance that the country has been hotter in recent times. But that claim is totally false.

The big scandal here is two fold. Firstly, the fact alone that current scientists think that they can legitimately tamper with past temperature records. The second is much more significant. How do you know that what you decide on regarding the past (when no one has access to the past) is in any way accurate? Simply put, you can’t know.

No one has a time machine. No one can know what happened in the past. No scientist, no matter matter how smart he thinks he is can know what happened in the past. The best you can do is to rely on a record of an observer who recorded something at some past moment of time. You have to take that record on its face value. You can’t measure anything that happened in the past.

This is why we have official birth certificates. It was the observers present at your birth that essentially testify, in an official document, that you were born at such a time and on such a date. They were there. Some future scientist, who was not there, can’t later correct that record.

The past Australian temperatures were usually recorded at Post Offices and they were recorded in official notebooks. Those notebooks are kept in the National Archive. But now we have modern day scientists who claim to know better and, under the excuse of ‘homogenising’ the data, they have changed the past temperatures, and ‘cooled’ it is all cases. So the alleged ‘real’ temperatures as recorded in the notebooks were in error, i.e. they all allegedly had some systematic error.

What they are claiming is that, because electronic (PRT) thermometers were introduced in the 1990s, the prior measurements made with Mercury thermometers did not have the same calibration as the modern PRTs. But fallible humans with a global warming bias are the ones who changed the historical records. And who would doubt their bone fides in doing that? And the problem, as you can plainly see, is the weakness of historical science. It’s all very Orwellian to say the least.

Yes I watch outsiders regularly and they have long exposed the bias of the science ( non science ) surrounding climate change .
All a bit quiet on that front at the moment though with the Coronavirus pandemic.
Once it’s passed, and not taking it lightly, I suppose no time will be wasted linking the two with new possible future devastating end of world scenarios forced down our throats at every opportunity, again without any robust tested scientific integrity.
Still I don’t see many, if any governments, turning to God for help, wisdom and healing ? Depending rather on their own experts and their knowledge or lack of it to sort it all out.
The Church is pretty quiet too come to think of it ?
Thanks for your diligence and perseverance John.


Man looks to man, to his experts for the answer. Even in the COVID-19 crisis in Australia the Australian PM who claims o=to be a born-again Christian never mentions God. Never say to look to God. He once mentioned that religion was important in times like this. But no call to prayer. Strangely enough, Trump who is not a Christian, did call the nation to a day of prayer.

I found that the Believer’s Daily Remembrancer of March 23 Morning to be particularly suitable to this crisis situation.

“Where is your faith?” Lk 8:25
disciples were in a storm, surrounded by danger, and
filled with fear. They apply to Jesus: this was right. They
doubt His care, question His love, and cry, “We perish!”
This was wrong. Jesus demands, “Where is your faith?”
May He not put the same question to us? We have His
word, but do we heartily believe it? We speak of His love,
but do we confidently trust it? We read of His care, but
do we see our safety in it? We often seem to believe any
one sooner than Jesus; to trust any word more than His;
and therefore we are cast down, fearful and distressed.
Let us this day endeavour to fix our faith steadfastly upon
His precious word; let us believe in His particular
providence; let us commune with Him as our firm and
faithful Friend. He says, “Let not your heart be troubled:
ye believe in God, believe also in me.” He is worthy of all
our trust: He cannot deceive. He deserves our confidence:
He will not neglect. He encourages our hope, and
promises, “If ye ask anything of the Father in my name, I
will do it.” Do you believe this? Do you believe it when
you pray? If not, “Where is your faith?”

O how wavering is my mind,
Tossesd about with every wind!
O how quickly doth my heart
From the living God depart!
O my God, my faith increase,
Fill my soul with Thy sweet peace!
