"Overall we find that the evidence for contamination of climatic data is robust across numerous data sets, it is not undermined by controlling for spatial autocorrelation, and the patterns are not explained by climate models. Consequently we conclude that important data products used for the analysis of climate change over global land surfaces may be contaminated with socioeconomic patterns related to urbanization and other socioeconomic processes. "
"We have shown that a coefficient pattern connecting
temperature trends to indicators of industrialization is robust across a wide range of data configurations
in the surface and lower troposphere, but is absent in climate model-generated data. The failure to
reproduce this pattern in models indicates that it is not a natural feature of the climate system nor a
response to greenhouse gas-induced forcing."
Even NASA agrees! See Satellites Pinpoint Drivers of Urban Heat Islands in the Northeast
Summer land surface temperature of cities in the Northeast were an average of 7 °C to 9 °C (13°F to 16 °F) warmer than surrounding rural areas over a three year period, the new research shows. The complex phenomenon that drives up temperatures is called the urban heat island effect.
