“Most of the weather stations in the US are so poorly sited that their temperature data is unreliable.”

The article describes a new paper which analyzed the reliability of the weather stations in the U.S. and found that NOAA not only favored the data from the more untrustworthy stations — which also happened to have a warming bias — they then adjusted the overall data upward even more.

In other words, any temperature data from the last few decades cannot be trusted.

The full details can be found at Watts Up With That, but I haven’t given that as the main link because the page takes so long to load due to the many comments. You can also go here for additional information.

  • I asked a liberal friend why he thought “climate science” could be trusted in light of multiple episodes of faked data, suppressed dissent, and so forth. His reply, “I just believe it.” A classic example of what Mamet refers to as the liberal “tribe” mentality. Sadly, this corruption of common sense, even among many otherwise reputable scientists, is so tied to the liberal world view that it extends to all areas of human life; for instance, opposition to voter I.D. laws, hatred of all things military, etc.
