So why did Jaworowski make the statement in 2004? Indeed it does state that. It confirms the existence of UHI. But UniMelb says that UHI do...
What about this?
Reports of "adjusting" the data to fit the expected result.
The presence of energy release into the environment has an immediate, perceptable impact on the surrounding environment. Otherwise heat engines cannot work. The closer the location of energy release to the point where data are collected, the less chance for
CO2 persists for centuries on a dead planet with no plant growth. Judging by the vigourous growth of weeds (aka natural herbs) in my front yard, I can attest that there is some plant life on this planer.
Anthropogenic carbon in atmospheric CO2 represents less than 4% of atmospheric CO2.
So what happened in the 15th Century to cause the Medieval Warming that so far appears to have about the same magnitude of increase in global temperatures as the present episode?
What about the historic high concentrations of CO2 in the middle of the 19th Century? 550ppm compared to today's of around 350ppm. Any global warming from that?

snip-- In the reference above Prof. Jaworowski does not mention 13C depletion in the ice core data. Among other things, he takes issue with measurement difficulties...
One could equally say that CO2 is a feedback, not a forcing. There is in fact, scientific literature that indicates CO2 increases *trail* increases in temperature since the past ice age and before.
Eliminating all anthropogenic CO2 will decrease the greenhouse effect by about 0.1% ON PAPER. Kyoto only freezes (if you'll excuse the pun) levels around 1990; which are conveniently near-peak levels for much of Europe. That must reduce greenhouse by something like 0.01% or if you think that global mean temperature is meaningful; 0.003 degrees C.
A figure which is practically immeasurable in the nominated output. And while I'm talking about the immeasurable; consider how the global mean temperature might be measured. -- "Bernd Felsche - Innovative Reckoning, Perth, Western Australia ASCII ribbon campaign I'm a .signature virus!
