Latest independent analysis of world climate data by acclaimed skeptic blogger, ‘Chiefio’ ( aka E.M.Smith) and his blog contributors confirm that the Global Historical Climatology Network (GHCN) has dumped
the world’s second oldest and reliable climate record at Prague in the Czech Republic.
Climate skeptics claim this cynical censoring of the Czech’s raw data has been perpetrated by climate scientists because the Prague records prove there has been no warming in Europe for two hundred years.

Bloggers found that GHCN, based at Arizona State University, cut out Prague’s warm 1940’s as it would make recent warming look unexceptional. This process of adjusting raw data (almost always upwards) is known as ‘homogenization.’ Skeptics then found that climatologists had replaced the original Prague dataset as of 1949 with a ‘homogenized’ warmer series from another station in Praha/Ruzyne even though Prague had never stopped taking temperature readings.
Skeptics analysts are outraged because, after the Central England Temperature Record, the Czech record from Prague is the second oldest continous and reliable temperature record in the world and is known as the Central European Temperature Record. The data set has been kept since 1775 – in Praha-Klementinum (Prague).
Interested readers looking to verify for themselves this outrageous deceit can check the records here http://data.giss.nasa.gov/gistemp/station_data/ then search for “Praha/Ruzyne.“ The real Praha/Klementinum data may be found for the period 1770 to 2009 here: http://xmarinx.sweb.cz//KLEMENTINUM.xls.
From plain reading of the Czech Republic raw data from Prague, we see that proves that for the past 200 years the temperature in this part of central Europe has warmed by a statistically insignificant 0.25° Centigrade per hundred years.
The Prague raw temperatures correlate perfectly with those found in the world’s oldest records, found in the Central England Temperature Record (CET) that have been running for 351 years.
Thus, the two oldest and most reliable raw thermometer records in the world are telling us there is not a shred of real world evidence to show any “catastrophic” global warming. Rather, it the ‘homogenized’ or faked data created artificially by climatologists in their laboratories that is consistently being shown as the source of any ‘warming.’
