More Man-Made Global Warming Monkeyshines?

Ruh-roh. The raw data from New Zealand's equivalent of the UK's Climate Research Unit seems to contradict the official Warmist position. Looks like the same sort of troubling pattern of data manipulation suspected at CRU.

Update: The CRU connection:
An agency of the New Zealand government has been cooking the books to create a warming trend where none exists, according to a joint research project by global warming skeptics at the Climate Conversation Group and the New Zealand Climate Science Coalition. The chief cook? Dr. Jim Salinger, considered one of the country's top scientists, who began the graph in the 1980s when he was at the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia in the UK. CRU, of course, has become ground zero of Climategate at Dr. Salinger has maintained close relations with CRU since, as seen in the Climategate emails.
