Well well. So the climate data isn’t what Al Gore and the liberal media said it was. No. Can’t be! Say it isn’t so! Gore, the man who invented the Internet, and the media lied to us? Impossible!!
Here is the headline in the Press Release:
PRESS RELEASE – U.S. Temperature trends show a spurious doubling due to NOAA station siting problems and post measurement adjustments.
I’ve been telling people for months the stations used to collect temperature data were once located in rural areas but, with so much growth in the last 60 years, are now in urban areas. Concrete, asphalt, buildings, roads, cars, trucks, and homes all retain heat during the day and give it back at night—so the “average” is artificially higher than the true atmospheric conditions. The result is that temperature stations located in now built-up areas show an increase in temperatures since the 1970s far beyond what is real—indeed, fully twice what is real! One station is even situated in the exhaust air from an air conditioner! Ya think Gore would tell us about that?
But, look at this in the report:
· Well sited rural stations show a warming nearly three times greater after NOAA adjustment is applied. (emphasis supplied)
What was that?
What that was (is) is the current researchers have found that the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) has fraudulently tweaked data from those stations that did not match the exaggerated increases shown by the stations under air conditioner exhausts.
How’s that for hope and change? Temperature change, that is.
