In 1978. NOAA showed nearly a full degree of southern hemisphere cooling from 1957-1970. CRU has since made all of that cooling disappear.
The graph below shows the 1978 NOAA southern hemisphere surface temperature anomaly in blue, and the CRUTEMV3 southern hemisphere surface temperature anomaly in orange.

I presume congratulations are in order – so congrats etc !
Just sent loads of station data to Scott. Make sure he documents everything better this time ! And don’t leave stuff lying around on ftp sites – you never know who is
trawling them. The two MMs have been after the CRU station data for years. If they ever hear there is a Freedom of Information Act now in the UK, I think I’ll delete the file rather than send to anyone. Does your similar act in the US force you to respond to enquiries within 20 days? – our does ! The UK works on precedents, so the first request will test it.
We also have a data protection act, which I will hide behind. Tom Wigley has sent me a worried email when he heard about it
