Here’s an article from the New York Times (link below) that shows the idiocy of what we are dealing with from the Global Warming crowd.
Global Warmists CHOOSE to use models that use recorded thermometer temperatures for recent years and tree ring data for the years before temperature records were kept. HOWEVER, per the NYT:
"Since around 1960, for mysterious reasons, trees have stopped responding to temperature increases in the same way they apparently did in previous centuries. If plotted on a chart, tree rings from 1960 forward appear to show declining temperatures, something that scientists know from thermometer readings is not accurate. Most scientific papers have dealt with this problem by ending their charts in 1960 or by grafting modern thermometer measurements onto the historical reconstructions."

You wrote: they say that all of the trees on earth just “happened” to start acting differently in 1960!
Actually it is just the trees at high latitudes. And it is not so implausible when you consider that when acid rain, the ozone layer and changing hydration patterns in those latitudes also became a major problem.
