But no one has been able to convincingly prove that there has been any bias in the adjustments.
And the Berkley Earth Surface Temperature (BEST) study showed that there was no basis to the criticisms raised by the denialists.

That is a reason why adjustments must be made.
And why there is a selection of 'good' meteorology stations used. MOST of the 'problem' stations are in urban environments, and there is a HUGE oversupply of them there. So only GOOD stations without problems are selected and validated.

Station 'mapping' is distributed by AREA so even urban stations with UHI ( corrected for anyway by comparison to surrounding rural stations) do not distort the data (as validated by the BEST study)

WOW.

These space photographs show the world's islands as they've never been seen before.

What looks like a fish in one image, and a collection of blue gems in another are actually Heron Island and part of the Great Barrier Reef, both in Australia.

Absolutely fascinating and beautiful.

BUT..

there are two pictures labelled 'Akimiski Island' in James Bay. They do not match at ALL. Any ideas?

I guess this will be another report to dismiss because the scientists must all drive Hummers.

"Ice in Antarctica and Greenland is disappearing faster and may drive sea levels higher than predicted this century, according to leaked United Nations documents.

Greenlandís ice added six times more to sea levels in the decade through 2011 than in the prior 10 years, according to a draft of the UNís most comprehensive study on climate change. Antarctica had a fivefold increase, and the UN is raising its forecast for how much the two ice sheets will add to Earthís oceans by 2100. "

Anything can have the effect of poison if the quantity is great enough.
In the context of biology, poisons are substances that cause disturbances to organisms,[1] usually by chemical reaction or other activity on the molecular scale, when a sufficient quantity is absorbed by an organism. The fields of medicine (particularly veterinary) and zoology often distinguish a poison from a toxin, and from a venom. Toxins are poisons produced by some biological function in nature, and venoms are usually defined as toxins that are injected by a bite or sting to cause their effect, while other poisons are generally defined as substances absorbed through epithelial linings such as the skin or gut.

You can drink to much water and die. and to much oxygen can kill you. Yes not poison per-say.

So... you did not notice:

"Akimiski Island in Canada taken by NASA Landsat 7 in 2000. From the western side of the island, one can see the Ontario coastline"

and

"Akimiski Island is the largest island in James Bay (a southeasterly extension of Hudson Bay), in Canada"

And often a poison at one dose can be a medication at another dose.

Poisons and pollutants are 'dose dependent'.

Wazza matter?

Don't like your being held accountable to the same standards warmists use?

As I've said before, perhaps when the "experts" of global warming start acting like it's the 'crisis' they say and make the lifestyle changes they promote, then the THEORY might gain some credibility.

So far, the operating motto is,

Do as I say, not as I do.
