Global warming: more trashed math

An important post at Warren Meyer's Coyote Blog: Breaking News: Recent US Temperature Numbers Revised Downwards Today. Just go read the whole thing. It seems a little Y2K bug got into NASA's (already suspect) numbers. Reminds me of this.

It makes you wonder how many more little Y2K's are lurking in unpatched systems, waiting to be discovered. Some people seem to think that the whole thing was an urban legend, but those people are not programmers (or even frequent computer users).
