The CIA reported that climate change (global cooling) began in 1960.
The climate change began in 1960, but no one including the climatologists recognized it.
That was also the year when Briffa’s trees were cooling and Mann truncated the proxy record because it didn’t show the warming he wanted it to show. Instead, Mann switched to Hansen’s fake temperature record, which showed a non-existent warming trend after 1960.

But if you already know the answer, you sometimes have to adapt the data to fit what you know.
The real Mannian tipping point was Feb 5, 1943 – when he was dropped on his head at birth.
Piltdown Mann truncated his proxies and extended it to 1980 with redundant data, and then grafted data after 1980 with measurements he took in his oven (don’t worry. His oven is the official weather station of Penn State).
So basically, Mike the Pilt used the 1960 datum point reduntantly until 1980 when all along he had the real data? This scumbag should be thrown in jail.
Well, despite the warming trend, Chili temps are back at 1929: http://dailycaller.com/2013/10/26/global-warming-chile-hit-with-worst-cold-spell-in-80-years/
Nice to post about cold spells outside the US since it undermines the the “Global” reach of AGW which was BS anyhow to begin with.
Wrong Mann, I’m afraid Ivan.
Michael E. Mann (born 28 December 1965) is an American physicist and climatologist,
The CIA report is valuable information & I see WUWT noted it on 25th May 2012.
I was curious about the CIA use of the term Neo Boreal & found it is applied to the 1550 – 1850 CE era in North America.
I looked a little further. Here are some links.
How about June, 2011?
Omnologos dug this up several years ago.
Indeed! I’ve raised this with Andrew Bolt, because you all deserve wider distribution.
