The Hottest Years Were 1930s

Now that NASA has conducted a full review of the climate data in the US, and admitted that 1998 was not the hottest year they had records for, they are scrambling to keep the findings from being used by climate skeptics.

The new list of thetop ten hottest years contains 4 years from the 1930s and only 3 from the last decade. As the rise in carbon emissions is considered to begin around 1940, this data can be unsettling to the anthropogenic climate change theorists.

The director of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies is downplaying the recent discovery saying "The figures have slight significance for U.S. temperatures, but the U.S. only covers 2 percent of the world's surface, so there is very little significance globally."

Funny, they found it very significant when they thought the data proved their theory.
