You notice all they have to offer is ridicule and angry rhetoric. They cannot defend this stuff so all they have left is to snarl in the corner and hope the truth will go away.
One way to hide the decline in temps is to selectively choose which data you will use. The global warming hoaxers and fraud deniers would choose the bottom weather station, because it gives them exactly the kind of corrupted data they need.
Here is a well maintained and well sited USHCN station, which is of
no use the the likes of Mann, Hansen or Gore:

Here is a not-so-well maintained or well sited USHCN station.
This site in Marysville, CA, and has been around for about the same
amount of time as the one above, but has been encroached upon
human activity and man made structures, which have caused
widly innaccurate temperature readings.

Obviously if you want to prove global warming you use the site with the blacktop, AC vents, and an encroaching city.
