I wonder if this a direct thumbing of the nose at the Blog Action Day today. Since climate change is the main theme of the event. Of course the data has been there before just nobody really wants to say it. In addition, many of the data centers live in newly developed urban areas. Thus, the temperature data is faulty when compared over time. We currently live in the most technologically minded period of human history and as a result the amount of information available is exponentially larger than just 50 years ago.
