Our Coalition has filed a claim in the High Court of New Zealand seeking a declaration that the NZ Temperature Record published by the National Institute for Water & Atmospheric Research (NIWA) is not a full and accurate record of changes in the average surface temperatures recorded in NZ since 1900. On 5 August we wroie to NIWA chairman Chris Mace (pdf text here ) suggesting that his Board institute an internal review - this was declined (pdf here ).
We have filed an Amended Statement of Claim, adding a cause of action against the "New 7SS" (NZT7) resulting from NIWA's 2010 Review. A copy is attached ([here](amended soc.pdf) ). Clause 38 and all the following material are new allegations.
