I have been keeping track of the reported temperatures in the paper and on the television and the internet, and I have consistently noticed that the temperatures that are reported are in fact wrong.

They usually are anywhere from 10-20 degrees Fahrenheit cooler than the actual temperatures as you can measure them yourself. Sometimes even 30 degrees or more cooler. In addition to that, I get completely different readings from newer measurement devices than I do from older ones.

If I use devices to measure the temperature that are from back in the 80s and 90s, I get much higher temperature readings than if I use new equipment. For example, I just tested a new thermometer and it regularly reads about 15 to 20 degrees Fahrenheit cooler than all of my older thermometers do.

This cannot be just the instruments I am using. Because I have tried the same thing with the thermometers of two relatives. They had older devices from back in the 80s and they too read much higher temperatures than the new devices do and also show much higher temperatures than what is being reported in the paper, the internet, and on television.

I have even gone to the local junk store and gotten various old thermometers and tried this and it usually yields the same result. Another interesting thing is that if I am driving, I see many businesses that have digital temperature readings being posted.

By driving by and carefully watching and comparing them, I have noticed fluctuations of as much as 20 degrees Fahrenheit within distances of only a few hundred feet and also within a mere 5 minutes or so of time.

There are other strange things I have noticed as well. For example, days on end, day after day, where you can measure the temperature as well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit and yet the paper and television and internet report temperatures never once reaching 100. This is something I have tracked every summer for the last 5 years as occurring.

This has been going on now, from the best I can tell, for about the last 5 years. It cannot be a coincidence anymore. What I want to know is are other people also noticing this same thing?

Well it this has peaked my interest I will have to get a hold of some old style thermometers and see if I notice any difference . Thank You for an interesting read.

Make sure you are not confusing actual temperature with heat index...

Noticed this since 2000/2001. Where I live currently, everyone knows about this and assumes it is to keep the tourist industry alive and not scare anyone off with the actual incredibly high temperatures.

First researched this when the overnight lows were not matching up with the highs (not low enough) and I thought there was something wrong in the earth (right before the Northridge quake in January the temperatures overnight were so high that you didn't even need a sweater at midnight) but discovered that the temperatures were being reported correctly in this case for the lows but about 5 degrees lower for the highs.

Had no idea about the hand held temperature guages. Makes perfect seense - thanks for the heads up. No wonder everything is made in China now. That way there is no one to raise the alarm from the manufacturing end because no real news leaves there without bloodshed.

It's only in recent years that they began factoring in the humidity factor into overall temperatures, so that could account for the discrepancy between your readings and the "official" temps.

as far as I know thermometers do not show heat index , only the air temperature at least the old ones , probably the new digital ones might have such a function but I am not sure .

I wanted to reply to your findings and state that I feel you are completely accurate in many ways.

While what may be causing it is something I do not claim to know, I have my own suspicions and in that vein I thought, I would add to your posting by giving you and others some other matters to consider or to perhaps affirm in your own observations about the same subject matter.

I think that for many years now, we have been involved in weather wars with other nations that also possess weather weapons or acquired them over the past 10 yrs. The use of such secret technology is being used in place of nuclear weapons, or conventional bombs to attack those that we are trying to coerce or dominate for whatever political reason is being used to justify an attack.

For years now, the world"s weather has been visibly different, but not in a way that appears natural or cyclical. Historical records prove this point as you and others have found.

In this day and age, I think that secretly funded weather technology is being used to create natural world disasters by altering rain, temperatures, storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, mudslides, and all the things that can be blamed on for natural causative blame. It is what is called disaster politics and or disaster corporatism. Greed in the accident and greed in the cleanup. Add in eugenics agendas and it serves as a good vehicle for many covert agendas.

All the while the weather and disasters distract the public, the politicians play the warming planet card and that could be the staged lie needed to cover the fact that such weather technology cannot be used without it increasing temperatures on a consistent basis based on use. Since weather wars have gone full time, the planet has been warmer for it.

This is why if they knew and they did, of that I am certain, the long term impact would be affected, as such, conspiring to alter thermometers would be needed to prevent proper scientific findings to be considered or discovered. At present, any scientist will tell you that the data does not support what is going on and in that regard it implies that the weather is being modified by us and or by the list of of those attacking us using such similar technology.

We attack them, they attack us, and in such a way they can wage wars in silence all the while never having to raise the subject except to comment about some natural environmental disaster or phenomena which they conveniently blame on global warming due to carbon and then solicit funds to help with the tragic recovery process.

It's quite an elaborate plan, but the thermometers you find funny are and the deception is real. Just have to think outside that box a little bit more. Dont know where it will ultimately lead us, but being aware of it is proof that you are more awake than most.

Thanks for the posting. Great subject matter posting. Keep up the observations.

Yeah I suspect that you are right but what if there is evidence that the entire solar system is heating up along with us?

You know you're supposed to take temperature readings in the shade, right? For instance, I have the following weather station at my home:



The bottom part that looks like corrugated tubing, contains the temperature sensor. That shields it from direct sunlight, which would artificially inflate the temperature readings. It also contains a fan that draws air in from the bottom and over the sensor, preventing the buildup of any stagnant air which can affect the temperature reading.

We have had pictures in our newspaper here of bank temp signs reading 113. Yet they will say that the official high is like 87. Yet it is so hot, everyone is like ...my air conditioner won't keep up with this heat.

That is not heat index. They blame it on the sign being close to paved roads.

I dunno. I clicked on the thread because I have heard this locally - that it is hotter than they are telling us it is officially.

Here is an example- photo and info at link below:

Yes..it's hotter than hell here. I think I would notice a difference of 30 degrees..so I don't know how the op's thermometer readings are so different. All I know is that the weather man says we are having record highs and from what it feels like outside i have to agree.

Are you sure you not reading the breeze effects.

Many US weather stations are located near airports. I think they get higher readings due to the amount of blacktop in the surrounding area.
Also, as cities have spread out more we have less natural surface which makes temperatures hotter.
The IPCC has been using these falsified readings to further their global warming/carbon tax agenda.

Boil some water and check temperatures with all thermometers...

2nd line

Any luck with the boiling water test?


Good idea btw heehee

Ah, beat me to it. I was gonna suggest the same thing
BTW, make sure it's pure, distilled water, not tap water, as impurities and chemicals in tap water could affect the boiling temp.

As for all you people saying it's hot as hell where you are, rub it in why don't ya, it's p*ssing it down here... as usual!

August temperatures here where i live run around 112º for the last 10 years. before that (and before global warming august temps ran around 118º)

This year we have not broken 110º and its been mostly around 102º to 104º

I do hope global warming continues i like the cool weather.

There is also the galinstan vs mercury thermometer to take into account.

I agree ! i do in my country like check temps all the time with what "they" say is always different to what it is.. Lots a people always says its either cooler or hotter than it says and i say sure it is cause it is ! "Weather" they just get it wrong all the time or do it on purpose...

I live in Arizona, and it is usually around 5 degrees hotter at my house than it says on the weather forecasts, news, windows temperature gadget, etc. I would LOVE for it to be 30 degrees cooler, but alas.
