Especially since the definition of climate change is change over at least a century time scale.
We have older data. The data since 1979 is from satellites and it is more accurate than the older data.

Science takes all the data into account. None of it is ignored, or changed - some data has known errors, and since we have multiple overlapping data sets, we can correct for known anomalies. To not correct when we know it is not as accurate - would be irresponsible, and would be wrong.
