Our friends at NCDC have done some pretty spectacular work to hide Addison, New York’s warm past. Thermometers tell us that Addison January afternoons were about three degrees warmer in the past than they are now, and that January 1932 was about four degrees warmer than January 2006. But through the magic of data tampering, NCDC has made the January cooling disappear, and made 2006 almost as warm as 1932.
In order to make the warm January of 1932 disappear, they knocked more than four degrees off of the measured temperature.
If we look at the actual daily temperatures in 1932 and 2006, we can see that January 1932 was indeed an incredibly warm month, with temperatures reaching over 70 degrees on two days.
Afternoon temperatures in 1932 were as much as 35 degrees warmer than 2006.
The New York Times reported the warmest January day on record in 1932 at New York City.
We see the same pattern at thousands of stations. The past cooled and the present warmed. The public is being misled about global warming by a small group of individuals at NCDC and NASA. This is straight out of Orwell.
