    ... and not so trustworthy.


    According to NASA(as of 2000), the average temperature in the US was on a decline from 1940-2000.

    So, in 2000, we found that prior to 1940 there was a year where the temperatures were 1.5 degrees higher than the mean, and 2000 was 0.9 degrees higher than the mean.

    Now though, the image is different. The year prior to 1940 is now reported as 1.2 degrees higher than the mean, and the 2000 temperature is reported as 1.3 degrees higher than the mean.

    So, if we overlay the two, we find some interesting changes to the temperature graph in the last 12 years. The red line is the 'new' temperature, where the temperature is lowered from 1940 on, and raised in recent years, to make Global Warming more of a crisis.
