US Temperatures revised: hottest year on record was 1934

According to revised NASA figures, the warmest year on record in the US was 1934. Further, 5 of the 10 warmest years on record in the US all occurred before World War II. The figures were revised after an error appeared to have been found in James Hansen's work.

That the weather in 1934 was extreme should not be a surprise: that year was roughly the middle of the "Dust Bowl" period.

James Hansen, Al Gore's favorite scientist, has been discussed before here, here, and here.
