Temperature Readouts Wrong?

Master Of None has a post up that everyone should go check out. Have the weather stations that prove the planet is heating up been compromised by urban sprawl?

I doubt things like ocean temperatures have been compromised by the urban heating effect. I also doubt that average temperatures taken in the Himalayas are either. Or Antarctica. Or the Artic. Or any other significant location.

Also, did it occur to you that even if you measure temperatures in urban heat sinks, you're simply measuring a warmer location, and that the temperature shift still happens regardless?
