Climate change, or faulty equipment?

Got this from urbansurvival.com today. One of his readers sent him this...

"Anthony Watts is a meteorologist for KPAY-AM with a different take on "global warming." He wondered about the accuracy of the official NWS stations collecting the nation's climate data. So he actually went out and inspected a few stations and was shocked. Now he has a website called http://www.surfacestations.org/.

1003 of 1221 stations have been examined in the USHCN network and 66% of them have > 2°C (3.6°F) error rates. He posits that global warming is really just bad data collection. The maps and pie charts on his website say it all. See the picture of the weather station with the air conditioner exhaust blowing on it. What if there's one in an Omaha feedlot measuring cow farts?"

Well well well... C'mon Al Gore, quit fogging up the equipment with all of that hot air comin' outta yer head.

I'd head over to that site and check it out.. lots of data, and pics of these things in the strangest of places.
