    First off, the musical choice is hilarious and well-chosen.

    Second, of the reporting stations that do have longer histories (or those that have readings from many years back and then a gap to more current readings), most seem to show little statistically significant change – up or down – over the years.

    Very interesting…

      Re the music choice …. I have a mental image of Griff square dancing with a sheep (dressed up as a cowboy …. Griff not the sheep).

    Thanks Tony, a great and appropriate selection of an old music classic to go with your video presentation.
    I may be wrong, but I only count about 4 stations with temperature records earlier than about 1950/60: Buenos Aeres Obs, La Estanzuela, Mercedes and Paysandu.
    And, the maxima temperatures of each of those stations appear to have a cooling trend. It would be interesting to see individual plots of these 4 stations in a more readable static presentation.
    In conclusion, any attempt to derive a regional historical temperature record, before 1960 of the whole of South America, is Alice in Wonderland fantasy.

    The thing that stands out for me is that the longer Recordset show no appreciable warming.
