Kenskingdom demonstrates again the wisdom of ‘trust, but verify’:
I compared the adjusted [Australian Temperature] data with the raw data of these 34 stations.
Here are the results, and they are perplexing.
* I was expecting to find a stronger warming trend in the urban data than the 100 non-urban sites. WRONG.
* I was expecting to find BOM correcting for UHI, that is, reducing the trend. PARTLY RIGHT. But less often than with the non-urban sites.
* I was expecting the urban sites to have much better quality of data, with long records, few gaps, and good overlaps if stations’ data had to be combined. WRONG.
Fed up with c**p government science yet?
