Funny places to put temperature sensors

All photos shamelessly nicked from Watts up with that

Apparently in the "monitoring the climate" game, you have to be a little bit careful where you position the sensors, bearing in mind that too close to man-made objects, sources of heat retention, excess heat / cold etc can screw up the readings and give false data trends. so it's a little surprising where the sensors end up - as these photos illustrate

Smack bang between a couple of sewage units

Just outside a funeral home

Fucking geniuses these climate experts - in any normal scientific study this sort of basic category of mistakes in gathering data would invalidate the results of the whole thing - but apparently not when it's in the service of pedalling the dogma of Gore & Co.
