Global Warming

Two interesting recent developments in the Global Warming debate:

NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies has recently revised their data to say that the hottest year on record was not 1998 but 1934.

Canadian and amateur climate researcher Stephen McIntyre discovered that NASA has made a mistake in standardizing the air temperature data post-2000 resulting in a temperature correction of nearly 0.15 degrees. This may not sound like much until one realizes that climate researchers allege that the world's temperature has increased by 0.21 degrees since the 1930s - which means that around 3/4 of the change is attributable to an error!

An interesting Op-ed piece from the Wall Street Journal about this can be found here.
