Telegraph.co.uk Suddenly Finds Out: ”global warming data skewed by heat [from technology]”
Weather stations which produced data pointing towards man-made global warming may have been compromised by local conditions, a new report suggests.

The findings are set to cast further doubt on evidence put forward by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) which claims the science supporting rising temperatures is unequivocal.
The report co-written by Anthony Watts, an American meteorologist and climate sceptic, shows photographs of weather stations near heat-generating equipment which could be distorting their readings.
Some are next to air-conditioning units or on waste-treatment plants, while one sits alongside a waste incinerator. A weather station at Rome airport was found to catch the hot exhaust fumes emitted by taxiing jets.
Rising temperatures around the stations, which have been in use for 150 years, could also have been caused by urbanisation, the study claimed. One weather station at Manchester airport, which was built when the surrounding land was mainly fields, is now surrounded by heated buildings. – More here.
This info is over 2 years old, and yet Telegraph, who has pushed the global warming nonsense, and still does, acts like this is new info.
