I’m thinking about heading to Australia in a few weeks, to help educate the clueless Brian Cox about climate and the scientific method. A lot of it will depend on being able to fund the trip, which will be expensive. What do you think?
The hottest official temperature ever recorded on Earth (134F) occurred in California on July 10, 1913. But the heatwave continued for the entire summer. On this date in 1913 it was 111 degrees in Oklahoma, and 90+ degrees over most of the US.
NASA says that the record heat of 1913 occurred during the 8th coldest year on record.
The USHCN station in Milwaukee doesn’t have a very long record, but the station at Font du Lac 50 miles away does.
August at Font du lac was 47th warmest since 1895, not 4th warmest. Many summers were much hotter than this one.
Font du Lac had no days above 90 degrees, compared to eighteen days above 90 in 1937. The frequency of 90 degree days at Font du Lac has plummeted to record lows. Ninety degree days used to be quite common.
Hottest temperatures have also plummeted, and are near record lows now.
August maximum temperatures in Wisconsin are plummeting over the past 90 years. This August was almost exactly average in Wisconsin.
This summer in Wisconsin was not hot. The dishonesty of the press is off scale however.
This article is utter nonsense. August in Milwaukee was 14th warmest since 1947, and five degrees cooler than 1988.
August 1988 was much hotter than August 2016, with the hottest temperatures 17 degrees warmer than this year’s hottest temperature of 91. There were six 100 degree days in Milwaukee in 1988, but none there in the last 15 years. Maximum temperatures in August 1988 averaged 89 degrees, compared to 83 degrees in 2016. For the first 18 days of the month, 1988 averaged more than twelve degrees warmer than 2016.
The number of 90 degree days was below normal in Milwaukee this August.
The article was completely fraudulent, which is the norm for climate reporting.
Four years ago Donald Trump said that global warming is a scam intended to benefit the Chinese.
The treaty which Obama made with China (and McConnell/Ryan refused to block) does exactly what Trump said it does. It requires the US to lower its CO2 emissions and authorizes China to increase its CO2 emissions until the year 2030.
The 1930’s was by far the hottest decade in the US, with every state running hot for the entire decade. Notable heatwaves occurred in 1901, 1913, 1931, 1932, 1933, 1934, 1935, 1936, 1954, 1961, 1976, 1980, 1988 and 2011. The coolest summers were 1915 and 1993. No states were abnormally hot during the summer of 2016.
1993 was cool because of the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo, and there must have been something similar in 1915 – which was cool across the entire US.
The White House prosecutes climate skeptics and anyone who disagrees with their agenda, but fully supports the right of scumbags to trash their country.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Monday he was confident President Barack Obama is aware of Kaepernick’s actions, but hadn’t spoken directly with the president about it.
“but we surely would all acknowledge and even defend his right to express those views in the settings that he chooses,” Earnest said. “That’s what he’s done, and even as objectionable as we find his perspective, he certainly is entitled to express it.”
One possible explanation for Kaepernick’s actions is that he believed he was going to get cut from the team over his lousy play, and saw this as a way to protect himself behind the anti racism mafia. Nobody gets $19 million dollars for 32 yards.
