And the story is getting even more bizarre. Or how one station close to this faulty one “disappeared” from GISS in 1981 is STILL FUNCTIONING AND ALIVE. It just changed manger from USGS to NOAA – Pacific Tsunami Warning Center.
And note the HUGE DIFFERENCE IN TEMPERATURE FOR THESE STATIONS. As most 9 degrees (se graph below)
Also note that it was a private person how found this “missing” station and its data. Which the government agency in charge had not managed to do in 28 years! The same agency who decided to keep the faulty data from the other station because “The National Weather Service said that is not significant enough to throw out the data and recent records.”
A difference of 5 to 9 degrees!
And that agency is in “charge” of the “official” temperature data (NCDC)!
As I have said before: 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”.
“Note also that during the string of record highs from the 10th to the 15th, the two stations diverged mostly by six degrees F, The NWS originally admitted in their TV Interview to two degrees error, and that may be true from the HNL airport location since it is indeed a sea of asphalt.
“ASOS…placed for aviation purposes…not necessarily for climate purposes.”
Six degrees difference in the Tmax for at least 5 days. Many other days of record were 4 or 5 degrees difference. One day was 9 degrees difference.
But, which station is more representative of Oahu’s climate? The airport, or the observatory in the grove of native ground cover? I don’t think all of Oahu is paved yet.
So the big question to NOAA/NWS Honolulu is:
Do you still think these records are valid and worth keeping in the climatic database and record events database?
The big question for GISS is:
Would you like your lost station back so you can update the data?”
Data of the temperature difference here:

This is your Honolulu Temperature. This is your Honolulu Temperature on ASOS. Any questions?
