Follies in Measuring Global Warming
who plans these things anyway?

Follies in Measuring Global Warming

Before we get to the photographs of the seriously contaminated temperature stations, let’s remember the other piece of evidence that is used to confirm global warming; melting of polar ice sheets and glaciers. Let’s also remember that all of those ice masses have been melting for more than 100 years since the end of the Little Ice Age, something the believers of man made global warming always conveniently forget to mention. Why is that important? Because the ice began melting long before man-made greenhouse gases began to accumulate in the atmosphere, indicating a natural cause of ice mass recession.


Now On with the Show!

Global warming is measured in tenths of degrees. The temperature stations shown below are not the exception, but the rule. They represent rural areas AKA trees, brush, grass and small towns. Official organizations and the media use the temperature stations below for everything from scientific global warming studies to reporting local weather. Official organizations include NASA, NOAA, NCDC, UK Met Office, CRU and etc.

Let’s thank Anthony Watts for his work and remember to support the project at Surfacestations.org where most of the stations are being documented.


Aside from the air conditioner exhaust and the building blocking the wind, behind the photographer is a paved runway. Photo By Russ Steele, documentation of Petaluma CA on Surfacestations.org.

Applicants for sewer construction permits in Aberdeen, WA step off the paved driveway to read this sign that heats up the thermometer above that is not cooled by the wind that is blocked by the structure in the background. Photo by Gary Kobes, documented on Surfacestations.org.

Here is a picture I took of a temperature station in Lewiston, Maine. The temperature station is shielded from the wind on three sides. Blacktop surrounds the station on two sides and it is in the vicinity of that big air conditioning exhaust and barbecue in the background. I was standing on a paved driveway when I took the picture. This is the only location that is not rural; the town is listed as population 40,000.

The next temperature station does not appear to be in a windless area as it is on top of an asphalt roof attached to a metal pipe next to an air conditioning exhaust. Roseburg, OR

The air-conditioning exhausts or the rock pavement may not affect the next temperature station as much as the jet exhaust on the day of the air show at Lovelock, NV. Photo by Anthony Watts, documented at Surfacestations.org.

Another photo I took. On this brand new state of the art meteorological station in Eastport, ME hangs a brand new combination humidity/ temperature sensor 2 feet downwind from the air conditioner exhaust.

This station sits and cooks away while the buildings that surround it block the wind.

Air conditioning exhaust, metal fencing, blocked wind and dark color wood all ensure this station will show man made global warming. From Anthony Watts’ Weblog.

Anthony Watts says the woodchips under this station were hot, but not as hot as the blacktop driveway surrounding this station in Redding, CA. Documented at Surfacestations.org.

That’s me standing on the blacktop below the station on the roof of this Exxon airport gas station. In this case you certainly can say Exxon/Mobile is responsible for global warming. But look on the bright side, no wind problems here. This is a station that is regularly used by the local media in Presque Isle, Maine.
Temperature Measurement Sensor multiple heat sources. With Kristen.



Electra PH is no longer a temperature station. It continued to produce data for many years after the station was removed. Notice the multiple heat sources around it (asphalt, air conditioner, high intensity light, roof, heated office).

From a study by Roger Pielke comes global warming on major holidays and Super Bowl Sunday (and any other day you’re in the mood for barbeque ribs).

Things here will cool down when you go fishing assuming the metal tower and all that concrete doesn’t warm things up too fast. Photo by Russ Steele and is documented on Surfacestations.org.

Just a little amount of blacktop road next to this station.

I think all these barbecue pits in the vicinity of temperature stations means these guys get hungry while waiting to record the temperature. But it is at Lodi Fire Station #2, Lodi, CA so we don’t have to worry about fire hazards. Photo by Anthony Watts.
