How did this get modded up? Two links to a discredited climate blogger?
On July 6, 2009 the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration issued a preliminary report that charted data from 70 stations that SurfaceStations.org identified as 'good' or 'best' against the rest of the dataset surveyed at that time, and concluded, "clearly there is no indication from this analysis that poor station exposure has imparted a bias in the U.S. temperature trends."
When the NOAA slapped him down, he suddenly became the "victim".
But of course, the NOAA is in on the climate conspiracy as well, right guys?
