NASA Rewriting US History | Real Science
Until about ten years ago, NASA showed the US on an 80 year long cooling trend, with the three hottest years being in the 1920s and 1930s. They have deleted the raw data from their website and blocked archiving, but John Daly captured it. It was originally located at this link :
NASA has since rewritten US history and shows the same period warming – with 1998 as the hottest year.
'Hands off our trough!' says WWF's UK boss – Telegraph Blogs
it's all part of a concerted campaign by Big Green to prop up what I would argue is the most corrupt and corrupting industry on earth: Renewables in general and the wind industry in particular.

In my book Watermelons – which I have been hitherto far too modest ever once to mention before in these blogs – I set out to answer the question: "But why would they lie to us?" To which the short answer is: "Follow the money."

Not, I doubt, since Tulipmania or the South Sea Bubble has quite so much money been squandered to so little purpose as the vast sums of taxpayers money urinated against the gigantic wall they call wind "power." Naturally, all the grubby rent-seekers and their various hangers on (lawyers, corporate PRs, green charities etc) which this vile industry has drawn – rather in the manner that a festering pool of tramp's vomit attracts flies – are highly reluctant to have their cash cow taken away from them. This is why they are fighting so hard to preserve it.

But the tide has turned against them. The markets worked this out some time ago: interesting to note, for example, that the Danish stock most heavily shorted by hedge funds is the wind company Vestas.
Climate Change Causes Beetles To Vanish! « NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT
Apparently, in a country where temperatures can vary by 30C from winter to summer, 4C on average from North to South, and often 10C or more from day to night, the poor little devils simply cannot cope when temperatures go up by half a degree.
Rewriting The Past At NOAA | Real Science
NOAA has done a bang up job cooling past temperature records, but it also turns out that they have been reducing or entirely missing many other historic weather events. Their deadliest tornado list has either under-counted or entirely missed many tornadoes from the past.
Ivan found this list of tornadoes which shows that they completely missed a tornado which killed 800 people in February 1884. That would have been #1 on the NOAA list. They also seem to have undercounted deaths from many others.
But it is worse than it seems. I found another article showing even more huge tornadoes which they missed, like an 1842 tornado which killed 500 people.
