Anybody else using solar panels for energy generation.baylee i've took some time to read up on this crowd sourcing study.
You complained about the errors and the data collection points. I hope you understand that these are largely accounted for and that they are looking more at the change in temperature over time.
Eg if one data point is showing a +1 degree over the actual temperature than a few degree change over the years is still going to show the same increase as the errors cancel each other out.
A climate deinale group claimed that several stations were in error due to heat islands or other items.
Scientists inturn removed those stations and produced the graph again. The change in temperature was almost the exact same.
Also the study was designed to check random factors, and a wide range of variables to see what the results would cause. Eg. what would happen if they increased the solar panels output, or on set of data was wrong. etc.
As to equal scrutiny. I couldn't agree more.
Sadly that is not the case. Climate denile groups feel that misquoting/lying about studies and people. , ignoring a hundred years of scientific principals, and insinuating massive world wide conspiracies is acceptable practice.
Afterall just look at ED.... No one in this forum had to do indepth review to prove ED wrong. We just checked his sources. It's the same with most denier cliams.
Meanwhile climate deniers will jump all over the declare everything false if they find one typo, one wrong source, or a hair out of place on anything. I once saw the heartland institute try to dismiss climate change over the difference of 0.01m. Ignoring the other 0.99m.
In short I think there should be equal scrutiny. However, the scientists that are being held to an almost impossible standard while the deniers have little to no standards at all.
There should be strict laws to check rising earth temperature.. Green ways of generating energy must be implemented all around the world along with cutting down of fossil fuel usage
