    Very true.

    In Austria we gather weather data since 1760. We have the oldest meteorological service in the world (since 1851). They see a rise of nearly 2 degree Celsius in the Alps over the last 100 years. Thats locally gathered data and therefore no need for a NASA conspiracy theory.

    You can download their data from here:

    Daily data goes back to 1948, monthly data goes back to 1760.

    If "demonstrated otherwise" means that CERN has shown that AGW is not real, then no, it hasn't.

    If you want to show that science is not credible, show that the moon landing was faked, evolution is wrong, and the germ theory of disease is also wrong.

    Excuse me while I go and read about how the Earth is only a few thousand years old, and then I'll have to go and sacrifice a chicken. I think someone has given me the evil eye or something .
