Australia and ACORN-SAT

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach As Anthony discussed here, some Australian climate scientists think that there was an “angry summer” in 2012. Inspired by the necromantic incantations in support of the Aussie claims coming from the irrepressible Racehorse Nick Stokes, I went to take a look at the Australian temperature data. I found out that…

Via experiment, NOAA establishes a fact about station siting: ‘nighttime temperatures are indeed higher closer to the laboratory’

WUWT readers may recall that I wrote about this experiment being performed at Oak Ridge national Laboratory to test the issues related to station siting that I have long written about. NOAA’s ‘Janus moment’ – while claiming ‘The American public can be confident in NOAA’s long-standing surface temperature record’, they fund an experiment to investigate…

New national temperature resource almost ready

I had hoped to have this ready in time for heat wave season, as it would have been quite useful in July. Pursuant to my post about July average temperatures being lower with the new Climate Reference Network -vs- the old surface network, let me show you a sneak peak of what will be coming…

A new paper showing how UHI and energy consumption are linked to long-term temperature change in China

Dr. Roger Pielke Sr. highlighted this major new paper in JGR yesterday, I consider it important as it relates to the works I’m doing on station siting. The key points of the paper are supportive of what I’ve  been saying for years, and show a significant effect on temperature trends, just as we’ve noted in…
