If you care to try some adult conversation, you're more likely to get adult replies. You're just rehashing the 'appeal to authority' fallacy.
Apparently then, you have no science background. Leave it up to the grownups then. Fox and friends are not science.

Correct, we want Big Al to be the Richest Green man on the planet. Just like those oil barons, who have sucked the lifeblood from the earth and upset the balance of nature. Big Al is here to fix it all, just keep buying anything he is selling the same way you made the oil barons rich.

Of course it's hard to give up, I like my fast cars as much as the next guy but what has got to be done has to be done. Just make it more expensive for me to use that car and I will look for alternatives or drive it less n less, that's how the market works. Not just deny there is no problem at all, it doesn't make it go away.

My grandpa did the same job back then. He was a drinker. He told me they just made up many of the numbers when they drank a bit too much.
In modern meteorological stations, the thermometers are housed in a shelter (i.e., in the shade) to keep them from receiving direct sunlight, which would lead to higher readings. I would think that even the earlier designs (1920's-30's) would have taken that into consideration.

If the thermometers were in the shade "most" or "one-half" of the day, then the readings from the time they were in the sun would have been higher. That would give the false impression that their locations have cooled since 70-8- years ago.

Are you saying that all meteorologists are lying drunks? If so, I'll be needing some proof for that claim.

"That's interesting. I wondered who did those measurements and how they went about it. Was it done at the same time every day? Where the thermometers ever moved? Were logs kept of all those measurements?.. stuff like that."

Stuff like any idiot knows that not taking measurements at the same time every day would distort the record. Stuff like "No, the thermometers weren't moved; why would they be? Unless the whole site was moved. Stuff like "logs" are the whole purpose and result of stuff like that.

And perhaps most important to some here... was your grandfather a climate scientist?

The title you're looking for is meteorologist. That's what a person that does stuff like that is usually called.

The stupidity burns!

Government shutdown causes National Science Foundation to cancel this fiscal year's research in Antarctica. Because USA operates the airfield there, other countries may have to cancel as well.

It's like a bonus for the Stupid Party!

Not only do they damage the US economy so they can blame that on Obama in the future, and pointlessly fight a law that is in effect and has been found to be Constitutional, but they get to disrupt climate research and cause the loss of a year's worth of data.

They must be proud!

Aww gee... the devoted warmist is getting all pissy.

But if you can, answer the questions I asked of Jimenez Garcia's grandfather's recollections.

You can't.

Do run along... SpaceBlues' prattle is infecting you all.

For your information: I was a Republican for almost all my life, until 2007 in fact. One side of my family were Southern unionist Republicans from the Civil War on. The other side were registered Democrats who were really pretty much Independents but registered Democrat so that they could have a vote in local elections (until quite recently the winner of the Democratic primary in the South was the winner in the local election, since the Republicans were too few to even run a candidate in the general election). They voted for Eisenhower, Nixon, and Ford. The leaders and ideals that my parents and grandparents held up to me were Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, and Dwight D. Eisenhower. Today's so-called Republicans, the Tea Party and the new brand of "conservatives" who are really a queer hybrid of economic libertarians / Christian Reconstructionists, are in no way inheritors of that political tradition. They hijacked the Grand Old Party, and it looks like a suicide hijacking.

If you've got 'science' put it out there.

If not, don't.
