Buenos Aires and La Estanzuela are located 35 miles apart across the water. Buenos Aires is a massive heat island, and La Estanzuela is a small town of a few thousand people.
Buenos Aires warmed tremendously from 1931 to 1995, the period of record for the La Estanzuela station.
The two degree warming trend at Buenos Aires is bogus. The area is actually cooling. So how did NASA and NOAA deal with this? They reduced the two degree warming trend to 1.5 degrees warming.
The surface temperature record is a farce. These people make no attempt to be even remotely credible.

The news is full of stories that Washington DC’s cherry blossoms are blooming earlier and earlier due to “global warming.”
The Washington Post Even predicted that cherry trees would start blooming in January.
It is simple enough to test these theories out, using actual data. Since CO2 hit 350 PPM, the average peak bloom date has changed from March 31 to April 2 – i.e. the trees are blooming two days later than they did 30 years ago.
Five of the last six months of March have been below normal or normal temperatures in the DC area, with this month (so far) being the coldest since 1960.
The years 1945 and 1946 had very warm months of March, and the trees bloomed record early those years.
The frequency of 60 degree March days in the DC area has declined slightly over the past century, with this month (so far) being the lowest on record.
Washington DC is expecting another snowstorm on the first day of spring. This year will be a late bloom again.
Like everything else which climate cult members believe, there is zero evidence backing up their belief that cherry tree bloom dates have anything to do with atmospheric CO2 levels. Since Hansen gave this testimony in DC, peak bloom date has gotten two days later.
On June 23, 1988, in the sweltering heat, Hansen told a U.S. Senate committee he was 99 percent certain that the year’s record temperatures were not the result of natural variation. It was the first time a lead scientist drew a connection between human activities, the growing concentration of atmospheric pollutants, and a warming climate.
“It’s time to stop waffling so much and say that the evidence is pretty strong that the greenhouse effect is here,” Hansen told reporters.
But the cult rolls on, believing their false prophets. They are completely oblivious to evidence.
Climate scientists claim that “rapidly melting Arctic ice” is causing the record cold and snow here in Philadelphia.
Besides the fact that their theory is nonsensical, the ice isn’t melting and there isn’t any missing ice in the Arctic.
The Arctic is extremely cold, and the cold air is spilling down to the East Coast.
Cold Arctic air is causing the snow, not the fake warm Arctic which exists only inside the heads of climate scientists and their religious cult followers.
This what Bath, England looks like this morning.
According to climate alarmists at Earth-Sky, wildfires are on the increase in the US, and 2005, 2006, 2007, 2011 and 2012 were record years.
The graph above starts in 1960, and it isn’t hard to see why. Their graph starts at one of the lowest years on record. The graph below is a much longer record from the US Forest Service.
I overlaid the two graphs at the same scale below, showing the spectacular fraud behind the start date of 1960 in the 1960-2014 graph. Their record high years were actually closer to being record low years.
The USFS graph is quite real, and correlates well with newspaper reports from the time.
Forest fire burn acreage is down 90% since CO2 was 280 PPM.
There is no correlation between fires and CO2, however there is an excellent correlation between fires and hot weather. The graph below shows the percent of days over 95F (35C) in yellow, and the fire burn acreage in black. They track each other very closely.
Climate alarmists can’t win the debate honestly, so they cheat, lie, cherry-pick start dates and tamper with data. And then they still lose the debate anyway.
The frequency of hot days in the US during the 1930’s was much higher than it is now.
Total burn acreage was also much higher.
The correlation between hot weather and burn acreage is almost perfect.
Government climate experts tell us that the US is getting hotter and fires are increasing. Both claims are completely false, and the people making these claims need to be removed from positions of influence.
Climate experts say the 1,196 Maldives islands will be drowned no later than this year.
The situation is so bad, you can buy a home there for less than £11,000,000.
Worried investors are sending billions of dollars there to develop the soon to be underwater islands.
But that is the actual Maldives, not the imaginary Maldives located in the minds of climate scientists.
Under Obama, every government agency became thoroughly corrupt. This was from two years ago.
The US had a warm year in 2012, which unleashed a barrage of junk science from James Hansen, Andrew Weaver, and Kevin Trenberth. Hansen declared the 2003 European heatwave, the 2010 Russian heatwave, and the 2011 Texas/Oklahoma drought to be due to global warming “scientific fact.”
The 2010 Russian heatwave was an outlier, which went against the trend of cooler temperatures and fewer hot days in Russia since the 19th century. Hansen ignored all the hot pre-1950’s data, and then simply made up fake statistics about the data he was using.
Same story with France and the 2003 heatwave. There is no indication that heatwaves are increasing in France, and 15 years later there hasn’t been a repeat.
Texas and Oklahoma have been getting wetter, not drier, and the 2011 drought was an outlier. Since then they have had their wettest year on record.
The frequency of hot days in Texas and Oklahoma has been declining, and 2011 was an outlier.
For the US as a whole, maximum temperatures and the frequency of hot days has been declining for the past century, and 2012 was an outlier.
The first day above 90 degrees has been getting later in the US, and the last day above 90 degrees has been getting earlier.
Climate scientists are ambulance chasers who rush to the scene of a heatwave and declare it to be the new normal. There is no evidence to back up their claims, and when the weather turns cold they blame that on global warming too.
Climate science is a corrupt, rotten, dirty clown show – and has no basis in reality or science. It is a group of people extorting billions of research dollars by frightening children.
