The Beeville story just keeps getting better. In the comments section of yesterday's WUWT post, I got a couple of ideas. First, there is a very interesting site where we can graph adjusted vs. non-adjusted temperatures of GHCN. The first graph above is the result for the Beeville station. A clear difference is visible between adjusted and non-adjusted temperatures, especially during the first half of the XX century. And looking at the blue line does give us an impression that Global Warming might not be happening in Beeville.
Being a skeptic, I searched for the raw data. The monthly data is available at the NOAA site. Got the data for Beeville and plotted the second graph above (click the graphs for better detail). Does anyone see any warming going on? Doing a linear trendline on the monthly data gives us "y = -0.0637x + 829.59", which means that temperatures have gone down! And now, imagine which were the 20 hottest months at Beeville, for the last 113 years:
|Month||Temperature (x 10 ºF)|
