UHI In Central Park

NASA’s James Hansen adjusts Manhattan Central Park temperatures upwards, to account for UHI cooling caused by the grass. (No this is not a joke)

I spent a hot day in Central Park yesterday, and last night was 3 degrees warmer there than the place I was staying in White Plains, NY.

NASA is well aware of the fact that Manhattan is much warmer than surrounding areas, as shown in this 2009 report – which they have recently deleted from their web server.

NASA has deep-sixed the paper, but you can still find it at

    NO urban heat island should be included in ANY ‘world temperature’ data. But then, the warming people are feeling is very much an urban heat sink effect which fools them all.

    I live in the mountains with few neighbors. It ain’t getting hotter, that is for sure.

    Steven aka Tony,

    The basic problem worldwide is the secret decision in 1945 to forbid public knowledge of solar energy.

    Why? Solar energy is the Sustainer of All Life in the Solar System.

    Philosophies and religions teach us “To have a good life we must each align our life with the will of the Sustainer of Life.”

    The above is my awkward attempt to explain the problem. May you find a better way to communicate this idea.

    With kind regards,
    Oliver K. Manuel

      Karma: What comes around goes around.

      The source of energy that sustains life was used in August 1945 to destroy the lives of hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians.

      Perhaps that is the reason for the current demise of society.

    White Plains eh, you were a few miles from me then.

    That is why it is called MANN-made Global warming – Mikey makes up stuff…

      Consensus science is man-made.

      At the end of WWII, Stalin had an army of consensus scientists under his control in the USSR.

      They couldn’t build an atomic bomb for him, but they knew how to control science with government grant funds.

      Our most prestigious academic institutions became magnets for consensus scientists.

      They invented all kinds of diversions to keep scientists from exposing the real source of energy that destroyed Hiroshima:

      1. von Weizsacker’s nuclear binding energy equation

      2. Yukawa’s model of imaginary neutron-neutron attraction

      3. The Standard Solar Model of H-filled stars

      4. Superheavy element fission in meteorites

      5. An alphabet of imaginary types of primordial neon: Ne-A, Ne-B, Ne-etc

      6. Imaginary Tc was supposedly discovered in nature at a prestigious university in NY

      7. Etc., etc.

    So: the real temperature of a site is what it would be if it was bare earth and rock? Who knew?

    Oh its no joke. Ed Long found the same thing for Class A rural sites all over the US:

    A Pending American Temperaturegate

    Rural sites should not be adjusted upwards for any reason at all. Its the urban sites and airports that are erroneous because of UHIE.

    And thermometers are migrating to airports because the airport operators must by law collect such data, therefore government can get it for free. Running a Class A rural site is costly because government doesn’t have anyone else to leech from.

    When you see things like this you can appreciate that it is ascam and a fraud on the taxpayers of the whole world. There is no dungeon deep enough to chain these chartlatans in.

    The Ministry of Truth is working overtime in the same manner as the Soviets. Those who control the history…
