1930’s Were Hot In Every State

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.

Mt. Lassen did erupt in 1915, but it seems unlikely this was big enough to cool down the entire US.

    I laugh when alarmists imply that the extreme heat of the 1930’s was caused by stupid farming methods of ignorant white cracker farmers.

    It is politically correct to blame white males for anything bad that happens. If the farmers were Native Americans or African Americans, you better believe they would not be blamed.

    Facts don’t bother the main stream press, the Milwaukee Journal ran this headline a few days ago:

    August on track to be one of warmest

    Accuweather tells us that we’ve had two days over 90 and none over 95.

    I wrote a letter the the opinion page saying as much, I’ll put a link on this blog if they publish it.

    Could that ‘something’ been in part due to the Novarupta eruption in 1912?
