    BTW, since the temperatures were the hottest for 120 years, that surely means it was hotter 120 years ago. But of course if that doesn’t fit with the official opinion then of course the data must be wrong.

    Are you sure it wasnt that over the 120 years they have measured temperatures this was the hottest ?

    They would have said the hottest ever on record, wouldn’t they? Far more sensational a headline.

    Either way we would still have people mis interpreting or complaining of the media sensationalising if it didn’t fit their paradigm.

    Of course the media doesn’t over sensationalise…hence the recent ‘100 people missing in Tasmanian bushfires’, didn’t notice any headlines saying ‘not one person even badly injured in Tassie bushfires’, after all the ‘missing’ had thought to give their worried relatives a call!

    A bit of factually based sensationalism is better than blatant lies and ignorance.
