Ja which goes back to my original point.  If they were to publish the
temperature and latitude/longitude/date/time of everything, just the raw
data without interpreting it, then toss that stuff out into the public
domain, then we would have armies of amateurs trying to figure out ways to
reduce this mountain of numbers.  The links offered before consisted of data
that had already been reduced.  

It isn't at all obvious how this could be done.  If one has a cluster of
stations close to each other and a single remote site for instance, how does
one take that into account?  Back before there was telemetry, the stations
needed to be closer to populations centers, because an actual prole needed
to read the data.  So perhaps more stations were located there, and perhaps
urban effect was being measured.

This science in this debate is far from over.
