The US is having one of its coldest years on record, as evidenced by record Great Lakes ice, and many pronouncements of record or near record cold winter and summer monthly temperatures by states and the National Weather Service.
But after data tampering by NCDC, this year has been just below average temperature, and only 41st coldest since 1895.
The actual thermometer data shows 2014 as 7th coldest on record so far, and coldest since 1979
More than two-thirds of the US has been below normal temperature so far this year.
NCDC accomplishes their feat of destroying the US temperature record, through a phenomenal hockey stick of data tampering- which cools the past by almost two degrees relative to the current year.
Note that according to NCDC, this year has been warmer than almost every year in the 1960s. This massive corruption defies both explanation and imagination.
