The Worst Heatwaves

Climate criminals now get hysterical about one day of 96 degree temperatures in summer, and claim they are the hottest ever.

Let’s put this in perspective. In 1913, Greenland Ranch California had a week where every day was between 127 and 134 degrees.

Heatwaves used to be much worse. Climate criminals are lying about this, like they do about everything else.

    The coming decade should be very interesting to watch as the AMO flips to cold mode. The N. Atlantic is extremely cold right now and after this El Nino, which is not going to be as strong as reported, the AMO should start rapidly descending into the cold phase. That is if we are to believe William Gray, which timed the flip about now. I will be super interested to watch ice extent during this flip.

    Having grown up in the small town just east of Ada by about forty miles and having both sets of the great grandparents from my father’s side are buried in the Ada cemetery, I all to well know about the climate in that area, there have been few and far between it been a hundred plus there in the last 50 plus years. The summers are not as hot now as they were during my youth, 50s & 60s and in some case not as cold either. Weather is weather climate is made up of those events. I know for one thing anyone who claims to know what the temperature in the future is a charlatan, I quite frankly don’t think they know if the earth is warming or cooling, I do know all they know is crying wolf pays well.
