WHY DID THE MET OFFICE TRY TO HIDE THE EARLY PART OF THE CENTRAL ENGLAND TEMPERATURE RECORD?

The central England Temperature Record is the oldest in the world and it is used prominently on the Met Office website. "Not A Lot of People Know That" is an excellent website by Paul Homewood. Paul has discovered that, although the record starts in 1659, the prominent graph begins in 1772. Paul has highlighted that this early section shows a remarkable rise in temperature between the 1690's and the 1730's of over 2 degrees Celsius, much steeper than the recent rise in the late twentieth century. Here is link to the graph and the article.
