NCDC reports that July was the 30th warmest on record in the US, and that July temperatures have increased by about 1F since 1895.
The thermometer data they used (prior to data tampering) showed that July was the 71st warmest, and that there has been no change in July temperatures since 1895. The animation below shows how they have created a completely fake warming trend by good old fashioned data tampering.
The next graph shows how they have systematically cooled the past and warmed the present – to create a non-existent warming trend.
Most of the country was below normal last month, yet NCDC gave July a top 25% ranking for warmth.
Now compare vs. July 1939 – which NCDC says was about the same as July 2013. Almost the entire country was hot in July, 1939.
Many people died in the July 1939 heatwave, which NCDC says was about the same temperature as the very cool month of July 2013.
The bottom line is that US temperatures as reported by NCDC and NOAA are complete garbage. They are generated for political purposes and have nothing to do with science.
In 1989, NOAA and CRU said that there had been no warming in the US over the past century.

Last week, scientists from the United States Commerce Department’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said that a study of temperature readings for the contiguous 48 states over the last century showed there had been no significant change in average temperature over that period. Dr. (Phil) Jones said in a telephone interview today that his own results for the 48 states agreed with those findings.
Yet now they show a lot of warming over the same period.
Welcome to Orwell’s 1984. The US government is rewriting the past to suit the desires of the White House.
