The temperature record that climate scammers like Michael Mann peddle is corrupted. They cool the past to show a warming trend that doesn’t exist in the unadjusted data.
The rationalization for this is that we didn’t know how to take reliable temperature readings until the 1980s. Somehow I doubt this.
Nothing boosts politicians’ political capital like fear. Scientists, who are human, last I checked, are perfectly capable of giving politicians the data they need to crow like Chicken Little—for a price.
The chart above comes courtesy of Steven Goddard. The blue line is observed U.S. temperature. The red line is adjusted temperature. They erased much of the cooling from the ’50s to the ’70s, which we know existed because in 1977 Time foresaw global doom if the planet kept cooling.
