COMMENTS:

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

Cities in Iowa showing a warming trend of 0.5F or less have been depicted in green color. That way we can see that only 8 cities show a warming over 0.5 F in 104 years, but the largest warming is Le Mars with barely 1.5 F, meaning a decadal rise of 0.15 F - surely we are not going to lose our sleep over such warming!

The warming trend for Iowa is +0.028 F by decade. If this trends continues, in 1000 years Iowa will warm by 2.85 F. Think about that.

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.
