Spent the afternoon talking cars with the guys at Chicago’s Hot Rod Chassis & Cycle. One of the shop’s projects, a chopped 1934 Plymouth powered by a sweet 354 Hemi, looked particularly warm. Appropriate, that, since 1934 has just replaced 1998 as the hottest year on record:
NASA has now silently released corrected figures, and the changes are truly astounding. The warmest year on record is now 1934. 1998 (long trumpeted by the media as record-breaking) moves to second place. 1921 takes third. In fact, 5 of the 10 warmest years on record now all occur before World War II. Anthony Watts has put the new data in chart form, along with a more detailed summary of the events.
A study forecasts that global warming will set in with a vengeance after 2009.
