The claimed warming trend in the US almost exactly matches the adjustments being made to the thermometer data.

Somehow, some way, we have to inform the public that the entire global warming scam is not at all related to actual data and that the whole game is rigged.
Single site thermometer and tide gauge records, even with adjustments on official data sites fail to show any enhanced warming trend in the modern era. That this is blunt refutation of team claims is something kids can competently explain to their parents and teachers.
