OTTAWA, Feb. 9, 2017 /CNW/ - Brad Trost, M.P. and candidate for Leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, called on Prime Minister Trudeau to withdraw Canada's support for the COP21 Paris Climate Change agreement because of questions raised about the veracity of data that appear to have influenced decision-makers at COP21 in 2015.
Said Trost, "I have published an Open Letter to Prime Minister Trudeau calling on him to rescind any assent given or commitments made based on inaccurate and potentially fraudulently reported data."
A report by David Rose in the United Kingdom's The Mail on Sunday, February 5th 2017, alleged that data reported by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) "was rushed through and timed to influence the Paris agreement on climate change."
Dr. John J. Bates of the National Centers for Environmental Information alleges that the NOAA "breached its own rules," that the NOAA report "was based on misleading 'unverified data," and that NOAA manipulated data in order to achieve a result that supported the objectives of the Paris Climate Change Agreement.
"The real data suggests that human activity affects climate change less than had been thought by promoters of man-made climate change," added Trost. "As a geophysicist, I have found the data used in support of man-made climate change to be disconnected from reality."
