    Did you hear about how a blogger recently found a y2k bug in NASA's climate data, if I'm understanding this correctly, it turns out that some of what we've been hearing about "global warming" from NASA indeed was seriously overblown.

    To quote the most revelant part:

    "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."

    Just amazing.
