In 2010 the New Zealand National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research Ltd (NIWA) revised a seven station temperature series to arrive at a national temperature trend from 1910.
The New Zealand Climate Science Coalition (NZCSC) has been attempting to obtain from NIWA details of the adjustments and construction of the seven station series from the many component data.
To date NZCSC has not succeeded and some history of their efforts is recorded here.
Background: read it all, and the comments…
Also hiding from FOI:
When David Holland sought information from the University of East Anglia on their contract with Muir Russell, they refused (see CA here)…
And also this from the Master Auditor, Steve McIntyre, the mathematical master the climastrologists fear most:
Probably no single issue damages the reputation of the climate science community more than the refusal to show the data that supports their work, even under an FOI request. The public believes that scientists who purport to be concerned about the future of the planet should not place their own financial interests, including future grants, ahead of this concern, particularly when their research has been done with public funds.
Recently I sent an FOI request to the University of East Anglia for a regional chronology combining Yamal, Polar Urals and shorter (presumably Schweingruber) chronologies referred to in Climategate email 1146252894.txt, as well as a request for even a simple list of sites used to make the chronology. This request is for data that is central to Climategate. Yamal was in controversy in the days prior to Climategate. I drew particular attention to this issue and this series in my own submission. Unfortunately, the “inquiries” avoided the issue… Again, read it all
