In point #4 Phil Jones says his "biggest worry is China. CMA [The Chinese Meteorological Agency] don't (sic) measure at airports, and they keep moving suburban locations a few more miles out as the cities expand...hope they will...send me their adjusted data (for site moves, but not urban influences). They are doing some reasonable work, but not seeing the big picture..."
As I understand this email, Phil Joneses biggest worry is that China doesn't have upwardly biased temperature records like many other parts of the world because they don't measure at airports and keep moving thermometers further out as the cities expand. What a terrible practice that is! And why isn't Phil interested in the urban influences data? It must be that the Chinese are not seeing the big picture... And what big picture would that be that Phil didn't want to put in writing in this email?
Someone please tell me I misunderstood and why. And please also explain #1 listed under "other issues" on why NCDC will be increasing global temps from about 2000 onwards. Hansen likes this and says in his reply at top that the NOAA SSTs [sea surface temperatures] seemed just a hair cool to him as well.
