Value-addition by subtraction. [krakatoa]

Is it a "trick" if you just ignore all the other thermometers?

Or is is fraud?

via WUWT, Jeff Id at the Air Vent (validating the work done by Save Capitalism -- get that? A peer reviewed blog post) explains how the all-important GHCN data was massaged for the Antarctic. According to a study based on these numbers, the Antarctic is warming at a rate of 4 degrees celsius per century.

Reminiscent of Briffa and his magic Yamal tree, GHCN used one temperature sensor location to represent an entire continent.

Let that sink in. One thermometer in one location is what GHCN has used to report the temperature history of the entire continent of Antarctica.

Now I'm going to ask you to go out on a limb, and guess whether this station was on the high or low-end of temperature change.

In the meantime, the BAS maintains an up to date, value added dataset of their own. Using 63 stations and simple area weighted averaging we get antarctic trends of 0.05 C/decade...

Currently the ‘homogenized’ value added version of GHCN has a trend that is EIGHT times higher than actual for the ENTIRE ANTARCTIC CONTINENT.

Check out the post at WUWT for a compilation of graph's & pics of the magical temperature station's "pristine" location.

UPDATE: Typos fixed. At least I got chicken.
