The NOAA heatwave

Recently the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released a report claiming that 2010 was the hottest year on record so far. As you probably know, their temperature sensors are supposed to be free of surrounding heat sources, such as paved parking lots.

The warmers are projecting a rise in temperature of a couple of degrees in a hundred years. With temperature sensors like this one, it's surprising that they aren't projecting temperatures hot enough to fry eggs.
