Please share your basis for this allegation. Dont forget to reference the article.
Data is not right or wrong. Thats like saying your shoe is wrong.
What you are getting at is perhaps, the interpretation of the data to fir whatever model you are investigating, or the methodologies employed at collection of data, or the analysis of the data, or the conceptualization of the data to measure what you interested in, etc etc.
You seem to be doing an unreasonable job at blowing smoke.

Carbon dioxide in

400 ppm at Hawaii site
Will we reduce the level of atmospheric

Carbon dioxide measurements in the Earth's
atmosphere did not break the symbolic
milestone of 400 parts per million at a
Hawaiian observatory last week, according
to a revised reading from the nation's
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA) revised its May 9
reading at the Mauna Loa observatory in
Hawaii, saying it remained fractions of a
point below the level of 400 ppm, at 399.89.
Individual readings at any of NOAA's
observation stations are subject to revision
on a regular basis. Sometimes a data point
is moved to another set when the sets are
adjusted for the international date line.
While scientists and environmentalists have
used the daily milestone to highlight the
buildup of greenhouse gases generated by
human activities, it's the rate of rise that is
That rate, measured by the Keeling Curve,
shows atmospheric CO2 levels are rising at
unprecedented rates, driven largely by the
burning of fossil fuels over the past two
centuries. The curve, pioneered in 1958 by
scientist Charles D. Keeling, is the longest-
running tally of carbon dioxide levels in the
atmosphere and is maintained by the
Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San
Diego. Readings there hit 399.46 Saturday.
The weekly average reading at Mauna Loa
was 399.52 last week, up nearly 22 points
from a decade ago, according to the NOAA.
Many scientists have warned that carbon
dioxide readings must be brought down to
350 ppm to avoid severe climate impacts
and stall "feedback loops" that will
exacerbate the rise. http://www.latimes.com/news/science/scienceno...
