I'm not accusing you of cheating, it's your government that is cheating. Our government is cheating too, but less than yours.Exotic Life wrote:Don't understand me wrong but I am not here to compete with others, and specially not Londen, I just post the actual weather like the blog says.
There is the real time - determined by the position of the sun in the sky - and there is the cheated, government-imposed time.
My solar noon is at 12:10, which means when it's 'astronomical' 12:00 (the real midday, i.e. when the sun is at its highest point in the sky) our government wants us to believe it's 12:10.
Your solar noon - assuming you're not far from The Hague longitudinally - is at 12:52.
Your '13:00' temps are actually 12:08 temps. My '13:00' temps are in reality 12:50 temps. Temps are usually higher at 12:50 than 12:08, so you're 'disadvantaged' in the sense that your posts may make it appear as if your location is cooler than it actually is - at least to those who are unaware of the differences.
Of course the same applies to people within the UK, albeit to a lesser extent - the sun rises (and starts warming the Earth) later for those on the West Coast than those on the East Coast, yet our clocks show the same time.
