Proposition 06: 1934 vs 1998

Someone called iCowboy posted a comment on Iain Dale’s Diary saying:

1934 vs. 1998 – the difference is 0.01 Celsius between those two years, but the statistics definitely show that 1998 sits well within a warm period, 1934 was generally cooler.

in response to claims that 1934 was actually warmer than 1998.


1934 is (at most) 0.01 degree Celsius warmer than 1998


Scan through the station-year records, find any which cover both 1934 and 1998 with reasonably-complete (>90%) data and check the temperature difference between them.
