The DENIAL101x temperature tool

As part of DENIAL101x, we've released a new tool which enables anyone to check and debunk misinformation about the historical temperature record for themselves.

This isn't the temperature tool - use the link above to open it.

Try it for yourself here!

You can look at temperature records at any scale, from a local weather station to national and global records. You can investigate common myths, such as the impact of urban heat islands and adjustments to the data. And you can use simple statistical tests to examine the accuracy of the record for yourself.

Here's an introductory video on using the temperature tool:

There's more information in the course materials, for example explaining those two 'advanced' method buttons at the bottom of the tool. Turn those off and you can produce nonsense - but very interesting nonsense. Why? To find out more, it's not too late to sign up at DENIAL101x.
