Yeah, concrete reflects heat, dumbasses

Nearly every record-high temperature reported over the last few days in the Los Angeles area are from weather stations “compromised by heat sources and heat sinks,” according to a veteran meteorologist.

“In my opinion, the data from these stations is worthless,” California-based meteorologist Anthony Watts wrote on his blog Watts Up With That.

That’s not to say Los Angeles wasn’t scorching hot. Temperatures in much of greater Los Angeles were in the triple digits, according to the National Weather Service.

    This placement of weather data stations near or in heat sinks is intentional “global warming” politics.

    This guy has done more than anybody to expose the scams:

    Not Surprising, Also since nearly Every Airport is a Weather Reporting Station, Days when the Wind is blowing slowly and Off of the Runways, the Jet Exhaust is a Big Factor in the Air Temp the Thermometers are seeing.

    I have two outdoor thermometers, one of the East side and one on the West side of the ‘ol double-wide. Both have been screaming as high as 120 with a daytime average of 112. So it’s F’ing HOT, no matter where you are in Socal.

    We have 400 foot high sandstone rim rocks along the northern edge of our city. The airport is on top. The areas of town near the rims are at least one climate zone warmer than where we live because they are by such a large heat sink. Five degrees cooler at our house than the airport during the winter is a fairly normal difference and we’re only two miles from the rims. They also make for a fairly effective windbreak.

    The increased urbanization worldwide is probably one of the biggest factors in Global (BS Warming

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
