Back now? Good.
From the above link, a quote about temperature stations:
Its all about location, location, location. And climate monitoring stations that are poorly sited and that have been overrun by urban growth clearly don’t give a pure signal for assesment of long term climate trends. This puts a real kink in the validity of the surface temperature data in GISS and HadCRUT and could go a long way towards explaining the divergence between satellite and surface temperatures in recent years.
This is what common sense looks like. This is what science looks like.
BTW, if you’re not reading Watts Up With That, well … you’re just not happening.
