All is not lost. In reality, CRU did not mesurae so much as collect. Many of the original records are kept by the collectors, often Meteorological organisations, who passed them on to CRU. (The Brits were good administrators and would often start weather stations each time they invaded a country). Indeed, some of it is even in unadjusted form. In theory, it should be possible to recreate the story and use proper adjustments if they are needed.Also, there are other places where temperatures have been taken for some time. Some countries with missile capability had an interest in local silo conditions all the time, in case they had to target and launch. So there is a set of temperatures going back some decades in several countries, under somewhat standardised conditions. I'm sure an interested Gov't could shake these loose.There's a lot of aviation and sea ship data as well. I think we can presume that some of this has been kept in mothballs until now. Then there are newspapers, which would commonly report a daily temperature. Some private farms have long records. And so on and so on. It's an organisational problem more than a data loss problem. I have written on CA how the early work on Australian data by CRU appeared to cherry pick UHI stations to create the original alarm that we are all going to die . Warwick Hughes picked this up. He was the one who got the famous reply.While on Australia, I have looked at the last 40 years of Tmax and Tmin of a few dozen stations that are really rural, before GISS got to them. About half of them show essentially no trend from zero. Some even fall. It's almost enough to falsify the whole temperature rise theory. All is not lost.
