Thorshavn, Faroe Islands
In 2003, two proper scientists wrote a paper on the climate of the Faroe Islands, which lie between Iceland and Norway.
They published this graph of air temperatures at the capital Torshavn.
So we find confirmation of the 1925-40 warm period, and that the recent temperature rise is no more than a natural recovery from the colder 1950-80 interval.
Of course, temperatures may have risen since 2003, but the raw GISS data shows otherwise.
Below is their graph based on the raw GHCN V2 temperatures, as they appeared in 2011. (The warmest year was 2003 itself).
Now, you can probably guess where we are going here!
