If this article is accurate, and so far I haven't found anything that suggest otherwise, it may put one of the final nails in the coffin for Anthropogenic Global Warming. In this case
Because the network, known as the U.S. Climate Reference Network (USCRN), is so uniformly and pristinely situated, the temperature data require no adjustments to provide an accurate nationwide temperature record. USCRN began compiling temperature data in January 2005. Now, nearly a decade later, NOAA has finally made the USCRN temperature readings available.What is meant by “pristine” is that none of the stations are situated near urban areas, parking lots, HVAC exhausts, or other artificial means that will skew the temperature readings. It is this siting that makes adjustments to temperature readings unnecessary. It is also these sites that are putting the claims made by the AGW alarmists into further doubt. But, as the article states at the end, “Of course, to global warming alarmists, all real-world data are irrelevant.”
According to the USCRN temperature readings, U.S. temperatures are not rising at all – at least not since the network became operational 10 years ago. Instead, the United States has cooled by approximately 0.4 degrees Celsius, which is more than half of the claimed global warming of the twentieth century.
Any data that doesn't fit the narrative must be ignored, destroyed, or discredited with a harshly worded retort. After all, they can't have reality intruding upon their agenda and mucking it up, can they?
