Recent studies have shown a significant portion of the temperature increase reported by the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) in the United States for the past century is a consequence of that organization’s protocol for massaging raw, observed, temperatures into reported, adjusted, values with a rate of increase of +0.6 C/century. This study of temperature trends for the New England portion of the U. S. adds evidence for the urgent need of an independent audit of the NCDC’s adjustment protocols. No public policy or regulatory decisions should be made based on government temperature data records until these valid and serious concerns are sorted out.
