Re: the shoddy surface temperature network (DA Morgan)

Your only response is an appeal to authority followed by an ad hominem attack on me. You really are pathetic. Obviously you did not bother to read the links I cited. Here are a few papers for you that show various reasons why the surface warming is overestimated:

Christy, J.R., et al., 2001. Differential trends in tropical sea surface and atmospheric temperatures since 1979, Geophysical Research Letters, 28, 183-186.

Changnon, S.A. 1999. A rare long record of deep soil temperatures defines temporal temperature changes and an urban heat island. Climatic Change, 42, 531-538.

Hughes, W.S., and R.C. Balling Jr., 1996. Urban influences on South African temperature records. International Journal of Climatology, 16, 935-940.

Collatz, G.J., Bounoua, L., Los, S.O., Randall, D.A., Fung, I.Y. and Sellers, P.J. 2000. A mechanism for the influence of vegetation on the response of the diurnal temperature range to changing climate. Geophysical Research Letters, 27, 3381-3384.
