Re: BEST Kept Temps

One thing I notice from your website Brad, is something I hadn't previously appreciated about the BEST (Berkeley Earth Surface Temperatures) project, is that it must be limited to land temperatures. The very few locations that appear to be in the ocean must correspond to small islands. I don't remember that major deficiency of the project, where 70% of the earth's surface is missed out, being mentioned much by environmental journalists when this project was reported as a news story.
