Homogenised temperatures, and planning for bushfires : Comments

By Jennifer Marohasy, published 1/9/2016

The difference between the official-adjusted maximum temperature for Rutherglen on 13th January 1939 versus the actual measured value is rather large - more than 5 C.

Where weather stations are moved a change in calculating temperature is required.
We live about 15 ks from where temperature is officially measured. We live in a more elevated area than where the weather station is, and our house is set back from the coast; whereas, the weather station is very close to the coast. We get frosts where there would be few if any where the weather station is. So the temperature we experience is often higher or lower than experienced at the weather station.

But, as stated many times; climate change does not hinge on temperature measured, the environment displays changes in temperature:
.thawing of permafrost
.the atmosphere holding more water vapour
.problems running the Iditarod dog sled race due to lack of snow and ice experienced over more than a decade.
.high temperatures in freshwater and ocean water bodies. Shown by the moving of marine creatures North and South of the Equator. The Gulf of Mexico has had quite an influence on recent rain bombs experienced by the US.
.glaciers disappearing.

Real data always trumps manipulated data.

Ant - the measuring station was in a paddock on the flat plains surrounding Rutherglen - your inane comment has nothing to do with this case.

Some boofheads may mess around filling in Census. However Oz has a growing population right. Visibly more houses. Some drowning deniers clutch at straws.

Ant so you say forget about the actual evidence of what happened on the actual temperatures and concentrate of a dog race?
Yep this is why I think you people are full of it!
