”Even though NOAA admits the sensor is in error by as much as 2 degrees, they are going to keep the data and the string of new high temperature records. “BUT” they fixed the recent record rainfall data from the same station. See below. How’s that for science? Fix one broken record due to faulty equipment but leave others?”
“The high in Honolulu Monday was 92 degrees. It was the hottest June 15 since the National Weather Service started keeping track and the 8th straight day we’ve broken or tied a record. But was it really that hot?
That’s what the experts at the NWS have been wondering. They settled their suspicions with a trip to the airport to check Honolulu’s official temperature sensor.
”We had one of our technicians visit the site and they did a side-by-side calibration and found the thermometer at the Honolulu International Airport was reading a little warmer than what his caliberation thermometer was reading,” said Tom Birchard, a meteorologist at the NWS.
It was two degrees warmer. There’s some wiggle room with the accuracy of the temperature sensor.
”Which means, if the reading is 90, the thermometer is only accurate to read within about two degrees so it could be anywhere between 88 degrees and 92 degrees.
Which means our records these past eight days may not be records after all.
”If it turns out, after further investigation of the thermometer the data were skewed,” said Birchard, ”they could be stricken.”
Which they where not. Hmm… can it be because it raised the temperature record?
This is the “science” that Global Warming Hysteria is made of and which our governments are going to spend trillions of our dollars to “fight”.
