    with all the arm waving about the LIA and MWP…..

    …..the dust bowl gets no attention at all

    Steve, Steve, Steve.

    As Hansen has pointed out before, the US area is only a few percent of the global area. The Arctic region is the canary-in-the-carbon-mine for global climate trends, since it is much larger than the, er… US, or something.

    Instead of analyzing the purported ‘best’ meteorological dataset (as demonstrated by WUWT’s pictorial tour of the weather stations) it is much more important to synthesize data in regions of the world where no data exists, or where data quality is an oxymoron. These ‘observations’ are synthesized using GCM’s. Once the observations dataset is infilled with new ‘data’, then the ‘observations’ can be used to ‘tune’ GCM’s, and when compared, provide ‘experimental evidence’ that global warming is unprecedented.

    At least, I think that’s how it works. It is rocket science, after all.

      Chris:
      That about covers “Best” practices!
      Steven:
      It is tough to decide as you need to provide graphs that are easier to read! 😉
      What is the bases for using blue to represent cold and red to represent warm records. Some might think you are Cherry Picking these records to show extreme weather events! If you averaged out the extreme weather events you would probably have average weather with no reliable information just like the “Climatologists”!

    I’ve noticed this before…. musta been a spike in home canning over the stove in the 30’s.

  4. Andy Weiss says:

    I have always enjoyed looking at old weather data as an avocation. When I started telling people that nothing unusual was happening, they thought I was crazy. It’s very nice to know that someone else has also looked at the data that feels the same way.

    Now they say that I’m just cherry picking stations and that the “experts” are taking thousands of stations over 100 years, that no one or two or ten or a hundred places matter. What do you say to them?

    Guess what, one Green seat is controlling the whole of Australia!!

    Anyone see this stupid film, its close to winning an Oscar.

    Why is Maldives building an airport on the sea if its such a risk?

  7. Harold Vance says:

    The decade following the 1930s featured 34 hurricane strikes on the mainland U.S., a record that still stands. Nine Cat 3 storms and one Cat 4 storm hit the U.S. during the 1940s. I’m guessing that this (ten majors in one decade) is still a record.

    The NWS NHC hasn’t yet updated their U.S. Hurricane Strikes by Decade chart for the decade 2001 to 2010. In fact, it hasn’t been updated since 2005.

    The Maldives are building an airport for pure tourism most likely. Their main source of income as the fish in seas are deminishing. The diving is fine and foreign currencies inflow are a blessing.
