In 1987, Ronald Reagan stood in Berlin and said “Tear down this wall!”
Two years later, NOAA did a study concluding that there had been no warming in the US since 1895.
U.S. Data Since 1895 Fail To Show Warming Trend

After examining climate data extending back nearly 100 years, a team of Government scientists has concluded that there has been no significant change in average temperatures or rainfall in the United States over that entire period.
While the nation’s weather in individual years or even for periods of years has been hotter or cooler and drier or wetter than in other periods, the new study shows that over the last century there has been no trend in one direction or another.
The study, made by scientists for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration was published in the current issue of Geophysical Research Letters. It is based on temperature and precipitation readings taken at weather stations around the country from 1895 to 1987.
In 1999, Hansen concluded the same thing
Empirical evidence does not lend much support to the notion that climate is headed precipitately toward more extreme heat and drought. The drought of 1999 covered a smaller area than the 1988 drought, when the Mississippi almost dried up. And 1988 was a temporary inconvenience as compared with repeated droughts during the 1930s “Dust Bowl” that caused an exodus from the prairies, as chronicled in Steinbeck’s Grapes of Wrath…..
in the U.S. there has been little temperature change in the past 50 years, the time of rapidly increasing greenhouse gases — in fact, there was a slight cooling throughout much of the country
Less than a year later, Hansen and Tom Karl rewrote the US temperature record – to produce more than 1C warming from 1895 to 1987.
Many people gave their lives to protect America from the Soviet Union. Little did we realize that people of the Soviet mentality were taking over our own government.
