The global-warming crowd at NASA-GISS was called out for manipulating data to fit their alarmist nonsense, again.
(For the unitiated, there have been so many instances of errors, data manipulation, and other shenanigans, from global warming alarmists that the rest of us can barely keep up with them; the number of my posts alone on this subject stood at thirty-three; now it’s thirty-four).
In this case, GISS made some “corrections” to the Reykjavik data. The Icelandic capital had particularly warm spell between 1940 and 1965 (roughly). Well, “GISS, as the blue line shows, have magically made this warm period disappear, by reducing the real temperatures by up to nearly 2 degrees” (Not A Lot of People Know That via WUWT).

Suffice to say, the locals are not happy (emphasis in original):
Meanwhile the Iceland Met Office say that “The GHCN “corrections” are grossly in error in the case of Reykjavik”.
