“NOAA/NCDC – USHCN is broken please send 100 million dollars“. Anthony Watts has gone on for years about how “awful” the US weather stations are at WUWT and his surfacestations.org websites, even though statistical analysis conclusively proves that for climate analysis purposes they’re just fine. You’d think that he would be pleased to hear about a proposal from NOAA to upgrade a core set of UHSCN stations ($100 million over ten years).
Nope. All Anthony has is a rant about gubmint spending and mockup of a “Dr. Evil” million dollar bill. But don’t get him wrong!
Hell, I’ll do it for 10K a piece and do a better job than NOAA ever could.
Anthony, I wouldn’t trust you with a ballpoint pen.
