Climate Common Sense is not a sceptical site but a non-believer's site .Global warming and cooling are natural phenomena and carbon dioxide is a lovely gas vital to plant growth. Global Warming has stopped and Climate Change ( I call it Weather) is the new manufactured bogeyman. This website will present a realist view on the Climate Change debate.

Hottest Year in the US? NOAA is not broadcasting their accurate data showing cooling!
The USCRN network was set up in the US to provide an accurate temperature record which requires almost no adjustment. Unfortunately for the global warming catastrophists the results show cooling over the last 10 years which is not the news required for the doom-and-gloom December meeting in Paris. They are definitely not interested in accurate data.
The U.S. Climate Reference Network (USCRN) is a system of climate observing stations developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The USCRN's primary goal is to provide long-term temperature, precipitation, and soil moisture and temperature observations that are of high quality and are taken in stable settings.
Data from the USCRN are used in a variety of climate monitoring and research activities that include placing current climate anomalies into an historical perspective. The USCRN provides the United States with a reference network that meets the requirements of the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS). The network consists of 114 commissioned stations in the contiguous United States, 16 stations in Alaska (with a plan to eventually have a total of 29), and 2 stations in Hawaii.
The USCRN Program Manager is Howard Diamond. The program is managed and coordinated by the National Centers for Environmental Information, a component of NOAA's National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS).
When we compare this with the RSS satellite temperatures for the US for the same period we get an almost identical graph confirming the accuracy of the RSS data. The RSS data is also showing cooling. Note the RSS data is in Celsius but can't be compared in magnitude as it is measuring the lower troposphere .
