“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.”
― George Orwell, 1984
I frequently post these graphs showing how NOAA and NASA have erased America’s hot past, and particularly how they made the incredibly hot year of 1934 disappear.
Let’s look at what they are erasing. The summer of 1934 had ten massive heat waves east of the Rockies. Minnesota had a record cold spring this year, but in 1934 Minnesota was an extremely hot place – with many days over 100 degrees. Milan, Minnesota reached 113 degrees in 1934, compared to a maximum of 96 degrees last year.
Minnesota had many hot summers when CO2 was below 350 PPM, but none since CO2 reached James Hansen’s deadly threshold. The last hot summer in Minnesota was 1988, when Hansen warned Congress that the Midwest was going to burn up and dry up.
Here are some of the heatwaves of 1934 which Hansen et al erased via data tampering.
But what NASA and NOAA are really erasing is their failed predictions. Thirty years ago this month, NASA’s James Hansen warned Congress of increased heatwaves and droughts in the Midwest. He had it exactly backwards.
Hansen made specific predictions about the number of 100 degree days skyrocketing in several cities around the US, and growing cotton in Siberia.
Every one of his predictions was backwards. The frequency 90 and 100 degree days has plummeted in the US.

Closest USHCN station to Dallas.
Closest USHCN station to Memphis.
Closest USHCN station to Chicago.
All of Hansen’s temperature forecasts were wrong, as were his drought forecasts. Both the US and the Midwest have gotten much wetter over the past century, exact opposite of Hansen’s forecasts.
And what about the predictions of growing cotton in Siberia? Scientists got this idiocy from Arrhenius over 100 years ago.
Siberia broke the Northern Hemisphere record for cold this year. Cotton doesn’t grow at -62C.
Hansen “echoing the work of other scientists” predicted the Arctic would be ice-free no later than 2018. Democrats declared him a prophet over that prediction.
Instead, we are seeing the highest volume of sea ice in several years, very slow melt, and ice volume almost reaching the “normal line.”
Climate scientists have been pushing junk global warming theory on and off for over a century. But the real hysteria started with James Hansen in June, 1988. As his predictions failed, he began to tamper with the data to cover his tracks, and now all that climate science is left with is failed models, fraud and data tampering. It is a criminal venture in collapse.
