The Weather Channel says that Denver UHI is 23 degrees. That is mindless idiocy, but just for fun, lets run with that number. So why does USHCN only use a 0.1 degree UHI adjustment?
The closest USHCN station to Denver is at Boulder, which has cooled over the past 60 years.
The climate in Colorado is just like it has always been. So where do they dig up these morons? The answer is found at the top of the article.
In the face of growing evidence about the effects of climate change — recently bolstered by a study from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration showing there’s been no slowdown in global warming, despite the popular “hiatus” theory — the future landscape looks quite different from today. “The warmest day that we’d see in 20 to 30 years, the record temperature at that time would have no precedent,” explains Michael Mann, Ph.D., director of the Penn State Earth System Science Center. “New records would exceed old records and typical conditions [would] start to resemble what we today consider ‘extreme.’”
Katharine Hayhoe, Ph.D., a climate scientist based out of Texas Tech University, works with cities on their climate preparedness. She said many local governments are much more aware of and proactive about climate change today. “Ten years ago, it used to be a city wouldn’t really have seen anything happen unless it was a city in Alaska,” she said. “Now, they already have a list of ways they’re being impacted by changing climate. All of the impacts are tied to services or infrastructure.”
Mann and Hayhoe mutter complete nonsense, like crazy folk at the insane asylum.
