Giggle Warming

The Star.com has the story:

After a Toronto skeptic tipped NASA this month to one flaw in its climate calculations, the U.S. agency ordered a full data review.

Days later, it put out a revised list of all-time hottest years. The Dust Bowl year of 1934 now ranks as hottest ever in the U.S. – not 1998.

More significantly, the agency reduced the mean U.S. "temperature anomalies" for the years 2000 to 2006 by 0.15 degrees Celsius.

NASA officials have dismissed the changes as trivial....
Trivial? 0.15 C over six years adds up to 2.5 degrees over the next century. That's quite a boost this error was giving the Warmists. I'm sure the true believers are scrambling now to find bad news to counter this. Why isn't this bigger news?
