    No AC then.

    Reblogged this on CACA and commented:
    Life at CO² below 310 ppm – July, 1936

    I understand why you evaluate only stations in existence since the 1930s on your maximum temperature chart. You don’t want “new” stations setting “new” highs and contaminating your data. But isn’t there a little bit of that going on when you go back in time before 1930?

    Let’s consider two stations. One has been in existence since 1895 and another since 1930. Many stations like our 1895 one set their records between 1895 and 1930. That simply isn’t possible for our 1930 station. A meaningful number of records were set in the 1920s and earlier. I agree with your use of stations in existence since the 1930s, I’m just suggesting you use the same start date when identifying high temperature records.

    • The problem is that if I only use stations in existence since 1895, there aren’t very many and the data becomes statistically meaningless.

      • ACR says:

        Striking a balance between a) long history; and b) a meaningful number of stations is what you’re doing when you look at stations in operation since 1930. I get that, and you’ve done a good job balancing those two things. I’m suggesting that you shouldn’t consider records prior to that 1930 date even if a station has data going back to 1895. Your chart should begin in 1930. For example, if a record high for a particular station was set in 1924, you should disregard it and display the highest temperature since 1930 on your chart. Minor change, yes; but I think it is a better apples-to-apples comparison.
