According to the Alaska Climate Research Center, linear trends show that temperatures have actually fallen in Alaska since 1977, by 0.1F.
The stations used give a good geographical spread, and only four sites show any warming at all.
Yet NOAA show something totally different, a rise of 0.2F/decade, about 0.74F over the period.
The divergence between NOAA’s figures and reality is actually much greater. Research has shown a very real and significant UHI effect in Barrow. Excluding Barrow, the Alaska Climate Research analysis would give an average drop of 0.38F, instead of 0.1F.
This is yet more evidence of just how much tampering has gone on with the NOAA record.
