It was all a hoax.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in the US Department of Commerce fudged their numbers to pretend the world was warming.
The US government agency pushed this fraud so leftists could make money off of Chinese windmills and solar panels and the US government could put oil and coal workers out of business.
This ranks up there, next to the Russia collusion hoax as one of the most devastating lies perpetrated by the American left.
Real Climate Science reported:
NOAA’s US temperature record shows that US was warmest in the 1930’s and has generally cooled as CO2 has increased. This wrecks greenhouse gas theory, so they “adjust” the data to make it look like the US is warming.
The NOAA data tampering produces a spectacular hockey stick of scientific fraud, which becomes the basis of vast amounts of downstream junk climate science.
These climate fraudsters should be jailed for life or sent to northern Alaska with only a sled dog and an axe.
The northeastern US is preparing for its latest Nor’easter. The snow blast is expected to bury New York City in 15 inches of snow.
