Hottest October Ever Recorded

Goddard Institute of Space Science declared October to be the hottest ever. In fact, it was just as hot as September. Heck, October actually was September.
The reason for the freak figures was that scores of temperature records from Russia and elsewhere were not based on October readings at all. Figures from the previous month had simply been carried over and repeated two months running.
If they use July's figures for January, I bet they can make it look even hotter! Sadly, this isn't the first time the clowns at GISS have been caught in some questionable "science."
Yet last week's latest episode is far from the first time Dr Hansen's methodology has been called in question. In 2007 he was forced by Mr Watts and Mr McIntyre to revise his published figures for US surface temperatures, to show that the hottest decade of the 20th century was not the 1990s, as he had claimed, but the 1930s.
