1998 was not the warmest year on record in the United States, contrary to nearly a decade’s worth of it being reported as such. The error in NASA’s climate data, due to a variation of the Y2K bug, apparently mixed a lot of things up. With correct data now available, it turns out that the warmest year on record in the U.S. was . . . 1934! In fact, five of the ten warmest years on record were before World War II. Doesn’t this raise questions about the ‘global warming’ meme, since the data it relied on was grossly miscalculated?
