CGW-E takes another hit; Recent years not so hot after all.

No doubt you haven’t seen it in the media, but an error has been discovered in NASA’s temperature data calculation that marked 1998 as the hottest year of the previous century. You can read a more detailed account here, but the upshot is that 1998 has been relegated to second place, with 1934 now taking honors. 2006 dropped from second to fourth. The new ‘Top 10’ list is as follows (hottest first):

1934, 1998, 1921, 2006, 1931, 1999, 1953, 1990, 1938, 1939.

A quick count places four of these years in the 1930s, three in the 1990s, and one each in the ‘20s, ‘50s, and 2ks.

The Church of Global Warming – Evangelical (CGW-E) doesn’t like this kind of news, which is why, perhaps, they’re trying to paint skeptics like me as evil, traitorous, or anti-scientific deniers. But it’s the CGW-E that does its best to hide their data and methodology in order to avoid scrutiny (as you can read in the link above). Fortunately, we’re still in a two-way discussion on the issue despite the CGW-E’s best efforts to stifle meaningful debate. A good thing, as NASA continues to examine its numbers.
