Knowing how the global warming affects our earth is quite simple. You just need to look at the average temperature of your country and compare it with the data from the past. You will find that today’s temperature is much higher than the past. However, you won’t surprised with this data, because, global warming problem is widely known today. But, what if the real temperature isn’t as low as what you can find on many resource that provide information about this matter. This is what Paul Homewood trying to uncover and share to public. There is bad thing happen behind us and some party uses everything to cover it up.
The Data from South America
Homewood found the odd of the temperature data when he checked the data from 3 weather stations in Paraguay. There is new adjustment that has been made in these stations. The actual data said that the temperature change trend isn’t getting cooler, but, warmer. The most shocking thing would be how long the change or adjustment has been done. From the data he found, the change actually started 60 years ago, when there is temperature increase in 1940. Homewood reveals his found in this blog and hopefully this will become the main concern of many people, that our earth today face serious problem.
Homewood doesn’t want just use the data from those three weather stations in Paraguay. He wants more data about this odd adjustment. Then, he went to other weather station in South America. This time, he tries to look at the data that was made by Global Historical Climate Network (GHCN). They are the institution that is owned by US government. Homewood also uses data from Goddard Institute for Space Studies (Giss) and the National Climate Data Center (NCDC). We can say that these two institutions has big role in providing the data that we can find today. They have job to take measure of temperature for the wide area of our planet. Plus, their data also become the reference of many scientist and politician for knowing the real condition of global warming. And, Homewood also found some odd in their data here. Apparently, there is also problem that is related to the reliability of the data from Giss long time ago. In 1987, the data that was published by James Hansen show that the temperature in Arctic from Giss in 1940 is totally different with reality. It was much higher than what they shown on that time.
Homewood does all these stuff, because he concern about what happen in Arctic today. The polar ice in Arctic can be said is on the track to vanish forever. It becomes even worst with the population of polar bear that become lower and decrease from day to day. Of course, this will become our responsibility. The temperature adjustment is wrong. Even if it was for avoiding panic in many countries, but, this is the reality. Knowing it is the best thing, so, all human can take an action from now to solve global warming problem.
