One thing that would be useful on such a page would be discussion of the issues of self-consistent-over-time and cross-device consistent calibration. (For instance, skeptics often bring up the claim that many temperature sensors are located in areas like airports -- for ease of access -- which exposes them to local man-made temperature variations that aren't experienced by remote location temperature sensors, so that the readings aren't consistent globally.) I'd suspect that Google is simply combining easily available electronic sources and the people involved are not even aware of the possible consistency issues in the dataset, let alone actually doing any correction.

Hi Staffan,

I may be able to add some information later, like this project to measure the earth's radiation budget.
