    Classic UHI signature. Also a possibility, nighttime irrigation leads to warmer minimums.

      I agree, UHI is the answer. And what kind of corrections do GISS and NOAA make for UHI? NOAA makes no correction and GISS makes a minor correction based on “lights”. When you correctly adjust for UHI and take out the unjustified meddling of the land/sea temperature history you get a data record that tells us that the current climate scare is totally unjustified.

    So heat is not escaping to space as readily as it used to. Is that a problem or a blessing?

    This week there were tweets about the temperature of Venus, etc.

    This is from The Hockey Schtick which supports your analysis.

    New paper confirms the gravito-thermal greenhouse effect on 6 planets including Earth, falsifies CAGW
    An important new paper published in Advances in Space Research determines that the Earth surface temperature (as well as the surface temperatures of 5 other rocky planets in our solar system) can be very accurately determined (R2 = 0.9999! & tiny standard error σ=0.0078) solely on the basis of two variables:

    1) atmospheric pressure at the surface, and

    2) solar irradiance at the top of the atmosphere,

    and without any consideration of any greenhouse gas concentrations or ‘radiative forcing’ from greenhouse gases whatsoever.

      Occam’s Razor is rearing its head. The simplest explanation is the most likely. Maybe irrefutable gas laws and thermal capacity do actually have standing.

      Either that or COzy the magical CO2 unicorn.

      Went to Hockeyschtick and read what was said. Sounds like curve fitting to me. Okay for hypothetical “dig here” work, but not proof of nuttin’.

    • Without having read the link. Do you happen to know how we know the temperature on Venus?

    Apparently, CO2 only works the night shift.

    Doesn’t do squat in the daylight hours.

    The minimums are rather flat since 1979…. John M Reynolds

    The afternoon temperatures are obviously wrong and need to be sent for correction!
