This Is What UHI Looks Like

Since the late 1980’s, surface temperatures have risen much faster radiosonde temperatures. In fact, radiosonde temperatures are about the same as they were 25 years ago. This is the opposite of what global warming theory predicts, and likely indicates UHI contamination.

    When are NOAA, GISS and HadCRUT going to make “proper” allowances for UHI? Probably never; which makes their temperature reconstructions meaningless. Other researchers then use these meaningless temperature reconstructions to justify their own offbeat catastrophic predictions.

  2. Given that any temperature reconstruction in recent years should certainly be a subtraction from the reported temperatures affected by the substantial urban heat island effects, it is especially egregious that the government has been correcting temperatures upward instead.

    more like 50 years ago

  5. This is what I really cannot understand about these environmentalists. Urban temperatures have undoubtedly gone up and if you chop down the Amazon you reduce transpiration so there’s less surface heat loss and again you’d expect temperatures to go up. Both of these are “environmental”, both cause “temperature rise”, yet the environmentalists just deny they exist.

    This delusional approach where local temperature is isn’t considered a “problem” but global is and the way they show they don’t really care about the environment, shows tells me that most of them just hate the fossil fuel powered economy which creates the public wealth that gives these public sector hypocrites their jobs.

      Today, we live in the Age of Envy.
      “Envy” is not the emotion I have in mind, but it is the clearest manifestation of an emotion that has remained nameless; it is the only element of a complex emotional sum that men have permitted themselves to identify.

      Envy is regarded by most people as a petty, superficial emotion and, therefore, it serves as a semihuman cover for so inhuman an emotion that those who feel it seldom dare admit it even to themselves. . . . That emotion is: hatred of the good for being the good.

      This hatred is not resentment against some prescribed view of the good with which one does not agree. . . . Hatred of the good for being the good means hatred of that which one regards as good by one’s own (conscious or subconscious) judgment. It means hatred of a person for possessing a value or virtue one regards as desirable.

      If a child wants to get good grades in school, but is unable or unwilling to achieve them and begins to hate the children who do, that is hatred of the good. If a man regards intelligence as a value, but is troubled by self-doubt and begins to hate the men he judges to be intelligent, that is hatred of the good….

      To be exact, the emotional mechanism is not set in reverse, but is set one way: its exponents do not experience love for evil men; their emotional range is limited to hatred or indifference. It is impossible to experience love, which is a response to values, when one’s automatized response to values is hatred.
