Someone is Lying...

Watching The Weather Channel brag about it being the hottest June ever around the globe “according to NASA & NOAA”  Then I read a report from the University of Alabama at Huntsville that says there has been  “no statistically significant change” in global temps in the last 16 years according to satellite instrumentation.    Someone is lying here, or not telling the whole truth.     The NASA/NOAA information is based on ground based weather stations that have been reduced by 2/3 since the 1970s.  The missing data is then filled in/smoothed by computer programs.   The Huntsville data is untouched by human hands…no smoothing or fudging.  As I say, both can’t be right and both can’t be wrong.     We all just want the TRUTH.

 

Locally, it appears the upper high has shifted just far enough to our north & west to allow for some daily storms to erupt.  Today was delightful (91) compared to Sunday’s 98.   The Tropics remain dead for the next 7-10 days at least.

I'm not qualified to comment on global warming, but I'm definitely convinced that the climate has changed. I don't remember these intense thunder storms occuring 40 years ago.
