This is exactly what the flat earthers say...   people are "hiding the real data"....
Nobody is hiding the data. It is available and it is easy to see how climate scientists have consistently dealt with any differences between the models and the real data by adding ad hoc, subjective adjustments to correct "errors". These adjustments are often so large they turn what used to be data into a meaningless fiction. If these so called errors really do exist in the data then the correct answer is "we don't have any reliable data so we can't say anything". But that is not the answer they give. Instead the say "see the data matches our models after we added our "corrections". Complete BS.

If a drug company pulled these kinds of stunts in a drug trial they would be facing major lawsuits and possible criminal charges. But with climate science the legions of useful idiot run around screaming "denier" at anyone who points out how pathetically shoddy the science is.

All I am asking is that climate scientists be held to the same standards that drug companies are held to. Is that really too much to ask?
