Don't they claim that the temperature has increased 1.8 degrees since the 1800s? What is the margin of error? I would think any margin of error means that the temperature might have decreased.
The temperature is different from my porch to the driveway. Pretty hard to believe that thousands of weather stations around the globe over many decades didn't change temperature because structures around it vary. For example, knock down a few trees, lay some asphalt, and the temperature in that immediate area goes up. Hard to believe that people were taking accurate temperatures within 1/10 of a degree at all these weather stations for decades. Some of them probably rounded up. I'm sure a lot of the pages were illegible. I wonder how much liberty was taken in measuring that. Weather stations also move.
As far as computer simulation, I am not buying it. Trying to simulate this over decades and claim 1.8 degrees sounds off. There are just far too many variables.
