1934 Hottest Year on Record in US

First there was the admission by NASA that there was a flaw in their climate calculations and that having conducted a full review of the data, the hottest year on record was NOT 1998 as previously proclaimed by global warming alarmists, the hottest year on record in the US was actually 1934. The early 1930s were the period of the catastrophic dust storms that turned American prairie lands into The Dust Bowl.

The flaw in the data was found by none other than Stephen McIntyre, the same guy who pointed out that the famous "hockey stick" graph was erroneous and produced by a computer program that was designed to exclude any data that didn't fit the hockey stick shape, thereby eliminating the medieval warm period and the subsequent "little ice age" that occurred between approximately 1650 and 1850. Leave it to a Canadian to know his way around a hockey stick.

Then comes this little gem of information from The Washington Times' John McCaslin in his "Inside the Beltway" column.

D.C. resident John Lockwood was conducting research at the Library of Congress and came across an intriguing Page 2 headline in the Nov. 2, 1922 edition of The Washington Post: "Arctic Ocean Getting Warm; Seals Vanish and Icebergs Melt."

Now you see why it is important to read "The Grapes of Wrath" books give great insight and I think they don't give off to much C02 Emissions...but I could be totally wrong on that one.

I like charts like pizzas and not hockey sticks...now I am off to eat

As far as I know reading books doesn't cause carbon emissions but of course, they are printed on paper which comes from trees and so it's always possible that the global warming alarmists will need to picket some libraries.
