New York Times publishes fake climate data

The New York Times website is running an interactive tool
that enables you to check how much hotter your hometown is today, compared to the year when you were born.
Tony Heller tested the tool
for the city of Brinkley, Arkansas, with the following surprising results.
First of all, the tool does not give any data prior to 1960, hiding the hot 1930's in the US, as can be seen at the figure at the top of this page. There is no reason for this at all, because older data is readily available.
But it gets worse.
The tool shows a rising number of days above 90F (32°C) while the official NOAA temperature data shows a descending trend. They claim that Brinkley now gets about 77 days per year above ninety degrees F, when in fact the real number has decreased to closer to 50 days per year.
Then they project their rising trend into the future, telling you that the rise is due to CO2
. They scare their readers with a very high number of hot days in 2100.
The truth is that a century ago, when CO2
was at 310 ppm, Brinkley had an average of 90 hot days per year. Now, at 410 ppm CO2
, that number has droped to an average of 50 days per year.
Then, how can they project a rising trend and blame it on CO2
They use fake data, then cherrypick the start date hiding the hot past... Their tool is fake!
