Check out this story in the WaPo. Globe warming out of control.
Note how NOAA cleverly truncated the left side at 1950 (among other abuses.)
Below I tacked on the 1975 National Academy of Sciences Northern hemisphere graph from 1975, at the same scale. Current temperatures are no warmer than 1940.
Also note how NOAA has massively cooled pre-1960 temperatures, in their graph.
