COMMENTS:

The stations on the map are uniformely distributed, and the temperature trend is a clear representation of the climate status of the region.

Colorado shows a warming trend with varying degrees of amplitude: with a peak of 5.7 F in Fort Morgan, and 4.75 F in Dillon, some miles away from Cheesman - that shows a striking -2.4 F cooling. Cheesman's and Fort Morgan's records start in 1900, while Dillon's record starts in 1910. If the trend for Cheesman starts in 1920, the cooling trend is larger. Stations with less than 1 F warming are shown in green.

However, the warming average for Colorado is 0.445 F since 1900 , or 0.045 F per decade - a trend that hardly seems catastrophic, not to mention that for reaching the predicted 5.8 C warming "prophesized" by the IPCC it would need several centuries of this kind of warming trend!

Global warming means there is an overall warming everywhere in the world, but there must be a reason for the cooling in some regions - reason that has not been explained by any climate model. As CO2 is blamed for the temperature increase and as CO2 has increased steadily, there shouldn't be any cooling anywhere. As we see cooling in many places around the world, the relation between CO2 and temperature increase is a false one.

Furthermore, as the relation between CO2 and temperature is derived from computer models, these climatic models are not an accurate image of the climatic system, and they cannot give an accurate prediction of the future climate.
