Do people who believe in man-made global warming have their own agendas? I think we can safely say yes. Especially considering a recent story which shows that record keepers at the global databank Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL) have been fudging numbers to show a dramatic rise in sea levels, when in reality the raw data indicates that levels have either been very gently rising, neutral or even negative (that is; falling).
This kind of lying and manipulation only hurts real environmental causes.
What is the motivation? Is there money to be made somewhere in all of this? Political power? Or can these people just not stand to be wrong?
Meanwhile, real, immediate, observable, provable dangers continue to be ignored.

Alarmist scientists have been caught red-handed tampering with raw data in order to exaggerate sea level rise. The raw (unadjusted) data from three Indian Ocean gauges - Aden, Karachi and Mumbai - showed that local sea level trends in the last 140 years had been very gently rising, neutral or negative (ie sea levels had fallen).
But after the evidence had been adjusted by tidal records gatekeepers at the global databank Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL) it suddenly showed a sharp and dramatic rise.
The data-adjusters take misaligned and incomplete sea level data from tide gauges that show no sea level rise (or even a falling trend). Then, they subjectively and arbitrarily cobble them together, or realign them. In each case assessed, PSMSL data-adjusters lower the earlier misaligned rates and raise the more recent measurements. By doing so, they concoct a new linearly-rising trend.
It is hard to put together consistent sea level records covering a long time period. This is because tide gauges are often the result of multiple sets of data, taken over different time periods using different instruments, which are then spliced together. So there is nothing per se wrong with PSMSL making adjustments in order to make the different datasets align.
What is wrong is the way that the scientists at PSMSL have adjusted them. In every case, they have revised them in order to make them produce a sharp upward trend in sea level rise - despite the fact that global records do not support this.
