In 2009, the Met Office predicted that 2010 would be the hottest year on record.
That forecast failed badly, by their own measurements.
So three years later, the Met Office retroactively altered historical data, to make their original forecast correct.
2010 ‘hottest year yet’

LONDON: Researchers have updated HadCRUT – one of the main global temperate records, which dates back to 1850, reports BBC. One of the main changes is the inclusion of more data from the Arctic region, which has experienced one of the greatest levels of warming.
The amendments do not change the long-term trend, but the data now lists 2010, rather than 1998, as the warmest year on record.
The update is reported in the Journal of Geophysical Research.
Isn’t government fraud grand?
