    Watts Up With That has a very good analysis of the weather stations that were used to generate the "record" temperatures. Interestingly if you look further down you will see where the tarmac at the airports where the stations are located reached a very impressive 192 degrees! Yowch! Think that might have had an effect on the temperature readings?

    The only analysis Watts is capable of making is what to say to gain the money of the people that gain financially from the denial of real science. Watts is a lying charlatan, plain and simple.

    So you deny the actual facts we all kno0w? The fact is that rural and outdoor areas have been dropped and the record is skewed by Urban areas.

    No agenda there.

    It was hot in June. We need to go back to the stone age to make June like December.

    UAH temperatures are derived from satellite observations. There is also the matter of the temperatures from ocean stations. Are they also surrounded by tarmac? The stupidity of your claims knows no limits.

    Poor old fraud,

    Had you bothered to read the article you would have seen that yes indeed the two weather staitions were in fact the source for the reports.
