It turns out Al Gore was right after all. Global Warming is man-made and NASA has the proof.
For years now the Reverend Al Gore of the Church of Global Warming has preached to us that 1998 was the hottest year on record in the past millenium… or century, or 10 years; whenever. And that 2006 was the second hottest year since time began. Apparently not. Inconveniently, NASA now says that’s not exactly true.
It seems that once upon a time, there was this Canadian name of Steve McIntyre, a retired mining engineer, who, like Al Gore, decided to study Global Warming temperatures. Unlike Al Gore however, Mr. McIntyre was paying attention and noticed an anomaly in some of the temperature recordings. He smelled a rat – or to put it politely – suspected that there was a bug in some of the software.
Having advised NASA of his findings, they promptly re-ordered their hottest year temperature records to the following:
1934, 1998, 1921, 2006, 1931, 1999, 1953, 1990, 1938, 1939
Now 1934 is the hottest year on record. In fact, 5 of the 10 hottest years on record are all before World War II. It must have been all those soccer moms driving around in their SUVs and Al Gore’s daddy cranking up the air conditioning in the old Nashville mansion.
