Urban Heat Island Effect

Here is a chart showing what has happened to United States weather stations since the early 60s, when urbanization made a real difference between Urban stations and Rural stations. The Rural stations are now showing temperatures colder than the 30s. Difficult to make the claim that we're in an unprecedented warming crisis today when 70 plus years of 'warming' have yet to get us back to the norms of the 1930s.

These are raw numbers, unprocessed by the Warmie scientists. Urban area of the United States is about 2 to 3%, depending on the state. In Alaska, it's about .002%. Rhode Island is about 12%.
