What must have happened is that rural sites aged out never to be replaced opening the door to nearby urban sites all of whom provide sheltering at least even before you deal with local heat.
Even with all the global ,measure refuses to rise. Odds are then we actually have a slight downward trend instead that is greater than measured.
I am actually shocked that our data has become totally unreliable. What has to happen now is that a whole new array needs to be constr8ucted including a rural protocol that becomes bullet proof. It is not hard to do either.
They accomplish this through a spectacular hockey stick of data tampering, which corrupts the US temperature trend by almost two degrees.

The biggest component of this fraud is making up data. Almost half of all reported US temperature data is now fake. They fill in missing rural data with urban data to create the appearance of non-existent US warming.
The depths of this fraud is breathtaking, but completely consistent with the fraudulent profession which has become known as “climate science”
