It Gets Cold When You Stop Cheating!

This headline from The Australian quickly caught my eye:

“Temperature readings plunge after Australia Bureau of Meteorology orders end to ‘Tampering'” (http://www.cfact.org/2017/08/07/temperature-readings-plunge-after-australias-bureau-of-meteorology-orders-end-to-tampering/)

And suddenly it’s about 10 degrees (Centigrade) cooler in Australia.

Gee, why were the readings so high? Because “smart cards”–we’ve told you to beware of that word “smart” when certain people use it–“filter out the coldest readings.” Well, that would do it. The low temperature readings simply “vanish from the record.”

It’s sort of like deleting the outs from your batting average: always makes it go up.

Anyway… toldja, toldja, toldja so! It’s a fake, it’s a scam, it’s a hustle, it’s a power grab!

Really–how many times do these people have to be caught lying and cheating before the world catches on?
