U.S. Temperatures: Adjusted Or Massaged? Posted By: rightwingnews 3/1/2010 8:28:37 PM Right Wing News, by Dennis Avery Original Article
Churchville, VA — My neighbor, physicist Edward Long, is afraid our temperature records have been falsified to support the man-made global warming scare. Dr. Long recently chose two sets of U.S. meteorological stations from the master list offered by the National Climate Data Center. One data set was rural, one urban. Each had a site in each of the lower 48 states. From the 1890s to 2006, the urban set of measurements showed an increase of 0.72 degrees—but the rural set showed only 0.11 degrees of warming.
