Weather manipulating site, NOAA, makes up heat records in areas where no instruments exist. ‘Hottest August ever’ is a fallacy of made-up data, sprung by Tony Heller:
They don’t actually have any temperature data in Namibia or Angola, or over about half of the Earth’s land surface for that matter. “Gray areas represent missing data.” They simply made the temperatures up.
Satellites cover almost the entire Earth, and they show that August was cooler than 1998 and 2010.
Temperatures in southern Africa were almost exactly at the 1979-2000 mean. They weren’t anywhere near a record.
That’s how NOAA operates, making things up! Read the rest at the top link.
