The numbers are in: 2012, the year of a surreal March heat wave, a severe drought in the Corn Belt and a huge storm that caused broad devastation in the Middle Atlantic States, turns out to have been the hottest year ever recorded in the contiguous United States.
NYT might as well be another propaganda arm of the White House.
March 2012 was mild, not hot – and was cooler than 1910. NOAA massively tampered with the March data. The graph below shows the untampered data.
The CRUTEM plot below flashes between March 1910 and March 2012. In March 1910, the whole country was above normal.
2012 was not the hottest year, 1921 was – and 1931 and 1934 were not far behind. NOAA massively tampered with the annual data. The graph below shows the untampered data.
