Follies in Measuring Global Warming III
Hansen’s Lights = 0 Temperature Stations In New England


Once upon a time James Hanson and co-workers at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) had a bright idea (pardon the pun) on how to separate urban temperature stations from rural temperature stations. Scientists needed to eliminate the heat island effect from urban stations. NASA satellites were used to get photos of the Earth at nighttime, showing where people have lights near homes, buildings, and streets. This is how NASA GISS was able to locate rural and urban temperature stations. By comparing the rural and urban temperatures, NASA GISS could make adjustments to the temperature record.


NASA Urban Light Map

Unfortunately, the satellite used by Hansen and GISS didn’t have a zoom feature, because if it did, they would have seen the obvious problems that exist at the National Weather Service Coop stations used in their global warming studies.

We have all seen Anthony Watts’ Happy Camp Ranger Station where NASA’s lights = 0, but air conditioners within 100 feet of the temperature station = 22. Not to mention the blacktop, buildings and trees.


How Not to Measure Temperaturel


5 of the temperature stations that were surveyed by KBSF are GISS “lights = 0” stations. Hansen’s “lights = 0” stations in New England are not as bad as Happy Camp but all are in violation of National Weather Service guidelines for station sites.

Acadia National Park, ME
GISS #

NWS violations completely surround this lights = 0 station, whether it’s trees, pavement or cars.


First Connecticut Lake, NH
GISS #

The operator of this site told my volunteer that the temperature at this MMTS is 1 – 2 degrees warmer than at the Nimbus station that is 100 yards away in the same field. He thinks it has something to do with the wind that is blown upslope from the direction of the highway and funneled between the house on the left and the cottages on the right. The temperature difference could also be from light reflected by the cottages or even bad equipment.

Cavendish, VT
GISS #

NASA Satellites didn’t see any lights at this temperature station, nor did it see the large transformer grid, the concrete slab in front of the station, the trees and buildings that are too close or the roof of the power plant that is 13 feet away.

Cornwall, VT
GISS #

NWS Site Guidelines for temperature stations require that the distance from structures and trees are at least 4 times the height of the structure or trees. This site was approved by the NWS despite the house on one side and the trees on the other which are all too close.


Northfield, VT
GISS #

Lights = 0.
Trees = a few.
Concrete, pavement, electrical and gas powered equipment = plenty.
Knowing the cause of “man made” global warming = priceless.
