Rewriting America’s History

“He who controls the past, controls the future; and he who controls the present, controls the past.”

– George Orwell “1984”

In 1998, NASA showed 1934 as the hottest year on record in the US, and declining temperatures for the rest of the century. They have since rewritten the data to eliminate the post 1930s cooling.  1998 used to be one degree Fahrenheit cooler than 1934, and now it is warmer. Note that 1998 version is in Fahrenheit and the 2019 version is in Celsius, thus the different numbers along the Y-Axis.

Why did they do this? The National Climate Assessment shows that the US used to be much hotter – in defiance of greenhouse gas theory and the political needs of climate alarmists.

In 1998, NASA was worried that people hadn’t yet accepted their scam, so they altered the data. They said it was a “sociological matter.”

On this date in 1936, the vast majority of the US was over 90 degrees, a large section was over 100 degrees, and it was over 110 degrees in Nebraska and Kansas. Franklin, Nebraska was 114 degrees, and Hays, Kansas was 113 degrees. Nearly 20 degrees warmer than today’s hot weather.

On this date in 1952, most of the eastern half of the US was over 100 degrees.

This date in 1887 was the hottest day on record in Ireland.

But propagandists have no need for actual data.  Never mind that National Climate Assessment says summers are getting cooler – the New York Times says it is just your imagination.

In the 1930s we had an actual climate crisis.  That needed to be erased.
