Remember, you have a couple more weeks to voluntarily send more of your hard-earned income to the federal govt to avert this catastrophe by Jan. 27, 2016.

Ha! I was waiting for someone to post on this!
I was reading an interesting paper on the Heat Sink effect on measurements at temperature stations around the US.
In short, it turns out that there is a not-so-small number (410 out of 1218) of temperature stations our climatologists have been monitoring that are placed in areas where the temperature around them has been artificially increased. For example, there is a station, I think in Oklahoma, that has the hot exhaust of an AC unit directly in its path. What happened you might ask? Well that station reported higher temperatures than any other station in the area. Go figure, eh?
But it gets better.
Instead of the scientists taking these artificially high measurements out of their statistical analysis, they did what any red-blooded politically-minded incompetent would do: they threw the bad data in with all the rest of the good data and, lo' and behold!, we have dramatically higher temperatures!
You cannot make this stuff up.
The paper is up for peer review now: Web Link
I can just hear a certain commenter now, "but, but, but, I'm an Ivy league scientist...!"
As I said in the beginning: Ha!
