  1. No doubt. whenever the models are wrong temperature data has been changed. The problem is that they have changed the temp data about as much as they can – so we no longer see the warming trend. If I were to guess, I would say we are having similar weather to the 1970’s but with all the numbers tweeked, it is hard to compare.

  2. Obviously, the data need to be re-examined to determine the reason for the lack of agreement with sophisticated climate models.
