Didn't Exxon discover climate change, and also created conspiracy theories after the discovery, that climate change wasn't real?
They even started the whole 'climate debate' to cause a stir.

It appears to be a fact that 1880, and many years after that, are getting colder by the year. Not only that but temperature means are getting warmer by the year for the later figures.
Take 1996 for example. That has warmed by .06°C in the last 7 years! The anomaly has gone from 25 (.25°C) to 31 (.31°C). It is scary to think that the temperature back in 2005 can still keep climbing even in 2012. Is this something to do with parallel universes perhaps?
OK before I go further with this let me explain the source of the data and what I have done to get the following charts.
I was musing on the fact that I had contacted a well known climate blog about this, but got no response. I did not know how to explain what I was seeing but I thought they may be interested.
For the past year I have been collecting the GLOBAL Land-Ocean Temperature Index in 0.01 degrees Celsius (base period: 1951-1980) from this page
For over a year I have simply added the next single month figure to the bottom of my list. Last month however it just happened to catch my eye, as I was collecting the latest figure, that the 1880 mean had changed. Eh what? How can that be I thought.
After getting no response from the well known blog I resolved last night to see if I could find any historical data using the Internet Wayback machine. Nearly all data that I could get by putting in "data.giss.nasa.gov/gistemp" was not having permission to view (Permission denied). It seemed that the IWBM was actually accessing the NASA site and not it’s own archives. Undaunted I resorted to the mirror archive in Egypt. I struck lucky with 2005 November despite the fact that this is NOT available in the normal IWBM.
I managed to source a few more years from Bibalex and for clarity I have just shown one month figures from each of the years I have collected. It is very obvious that before the base it is steadily getting colder and after the base it is getting warmer, and by that I mean that past years are getting warmer and not the overall temperature.
You can see the rest of this, and download the Excel spreadsheet or PDF files of the data at 1880 IS getting colder!
Whilst this above is external content I have not put it in ex tags as it is my own work and not derived from anyone else.
One last chart for you
Anyone have any explanation as to how this can legitimately be correct?
