Kansas Temperature Trends

June 30, 2014

By Paul Homewood


As suggested, I have had a look at temperature trends in Kansas, to see what effect TOBS adjustments have had.

The graph below is for the South West division of Kansas, as that is where the example I used yesterday, Ashland, sits.




Even after NOAA have made all their adjustments, the trend since 1930 is exactly zero.

We will recall, from yesterday’s post, that the TOBS adjustment at Ashland, between 1934 and now is 1.4F. Therefore, based on raw temperatures, there has been a sizeable cooling trend.

    Thank you, Paul, for all that you have done to expose government deceit about global warming.

    You won’t win any Nobel Prizes or research grants for telling the truth, but you do a great service for all mankind.

    Paul, that is a massive amount of adjustment, just to stop a downward trend appearing.
    This is the Perversion of Science, a US and Global disgrace and fits the warmist agenda perfectly.
    Will anyone pick this up and run with it to get it the exposure it deserves.

    Thank-you Paul for your recent posts on the US temp adjustments. It got me wondering how the US methodology compares to that used by the Met Office, and whether they are as bad as each other?

    TOB is a subject that is difficult to understand, and from what I have read its correction involves detailed equations. Is there a simple way to see if it is a valid correction?

      Although Time of Observation is generally accepted as having some effect, just how much is another matter, as it depends on the exact weather. On most days, there will be no bias at all.

      I understand the equation used by USHCN was based on a very small sample of station data.
