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?

Scott Bradford has been building web sites and using them to say what he thinks since 1995, which tended to get him in trouble with power-tripping assistant principals at the time. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration from George Mason University, but has spent most of his career (so far) working on public- and private-sector web sites. He is not a member of any political party, and brands himself an ‘independent constitutional conservative.’ In addition to holding down a day job and blogging about challenging subjects like politics, religion, and technology, Scott is also a devout Catholic, gun-owner, bike rider, and music lover with a wife, two cats, and a dog.
