Deutsche Wetterdienst New Rheinstetten Weather Measurement Station Located

Deutsche Wetterdienst New Rheinstetten Weather Measurement Station Located

Yesterday I wrote a post about the Rheinstetten weather station here. At first I thought it was the one located at the local gliding airfield, but found it peculiar that siting was pretty bad – as Anthony Watts commented.

Deutsche Wetterdienst: Could Some German Record High Temperature Recordings Be Relics Of Shoddy Station Siting?

Deutsche Wetterdienst: Could Some German Record High Temperature Recordings Be Relics Of Shoddy Station Siting?

Early this week a German meteorologist tweeted that Germany had set a new record high for the date in the southern state of Baden Wurttemberg at a station called Rheinstetten. I was even told that the station was fairly new (and thus reliable?). I’ve noticed that on hot days the Rheinstetten station always appeared to be […]

Warmist Year Of Disappointment? Likelihood Of "Super El Niño" Rapidly Fading...Arctic Set For Impressive Rebound

Warmist Year Of Disappointment? Likelihood Of “Super El Niño” Rapidly Fading…Arctic Set For Impressive Rebound

Looks like yet another model projection is about to join that now overflowing mass grave of failed climate and weather model projections. The latest to join it is the projection that 2014 would bring a “super El Niño”, and with it, the warmists are hoping, a new global temperature record. At Weatherbell Joe Bastardi has posted his latest […]

Global Warming STOP Older Than 1997 Kyoto Protocol…Soon Only Old Folks Will Remember What Warming Is

It’s increasingly obvious that warnings of a “rapidly warming planet” are coming from another alien world, one where the climate is completely different from the one we have here on Earth.
