Ever wonder how GISS gets such ridiculous temperature data? Well here is one of their methods. The weather station of Svalbard is a good example. Here you are in the middle of nowhere and where do they site the station.........? why right next to 9 acres of asphalt of course! 0 km (*) Svalbard Luft 78.2 N 15.5 E 634010080002 rural area 19772006 Below are two photo's of the weather station and a graph showing the dramatic urban heat island effect as you move away from the airport....and old fraud actually believes this crap!
