May 8, 1934 – 105 Degrees In North Dakota

On May 8, 1934 temperatures reached 105 degrees at Fort Yates, ND, Gann Valley, SD and Aberdeen, SD. Most of South Dakota was over 100 degrees.

Nearly one fourth of US stations were over 90 degrees that day. Compare vs. 2013, when no US stations reached 90 degrees on May 8. The last two years (NASA’s two hottest years ever) were both near record lows too. The six hottest May 8ths occurred in 1934, 1895, 1916, 1952, 1962 and 1918 – all below 320 PPM CO2.

During the three days from May 7 to May 9, 1934 ninety and one hundred degree temperatures were widespread across much of the US.

Hot May temperatures were common when CO2 was below 320 PPM, but they rarely happen any more. Recent years have had record low numbers of hot May days.

The professional fraudsters at the Union of Concerned Scientists Communists, say higher spring temperatures are increasing fire risks.

Is Global Warming Fueling Increased Wildfire Risks? | Union of Concerned Scientists

But the US Forest Service says fires are down 80% over the past 80 years.

Indicator 3.16: Area and percent of forest affected by abiotic agents

If we had a repeat of 1934, scientists would say they were more than 99% certain that it was caused by global warming, and that immediate “action” is required.

As with essentially everything else in climate science, the claims of increased springtime heat and fires are the exact opposite of what the data shows. The people behind this scam are criminals, not scientists. Politicians who pander to the scam need to be called out and removed from office. The multi-billion dollar global warming scam can’t exist without funding from politicians.

    It’s forecast to reach 90F here in Tampa today, but at 10:00 AM I have my doubts.

  2. dave1billion says:

    OT, but the DMI hasn’t updated their Arctic Ice Extent chart since May 2nd.

    Should we expect an update of the methodology to show that things are worse than previously calculated?

    I’m half kidding here, but also half paranoid. Hopefully my paranoia will be proven to be overblown and it’s just a case of Jens and Freya being on vacation this week. I really hate it when my paranoia turns out to be justified.

      Yep, it is a noticeable trend isn’t it.

      Measurements start to go bad for the AGW scam, and data sets stop, and get revised.

      Happens all too often. !!

    32′ this morning southeast Wisconsin may 8 probably caused by us using too much gas

  4. John F. Hultquist says:

    The Union of Concerned Scientists (a misnomer if ever there was one) ought to be shut down for the misinformation and misdirection of resources they promote. Their approach passes beneath the level of criminality. It is important to expose it and hope they scatter like cockroaches chased by a torch.

    Many fires are caused by humans so the number can be decreased but not eliminated and lightning caused fires cannot be prevented. Sometimes a storm can cause many strikes and dozens of fires in less than an hour. A few massive fires will result.

    In the US west, thinning and controlled burns are becoming better accepted because a few individuals are getting the information out that there has been a massive fuel build-up during the last 125 years. We are way too late.
    One source of information is from this source in Wenatchee WA
    The Era of Megafires is a 70-minute, multi-media, traveling presentation …
    FireWise and Fire Adapted Communities are also on to the need to reduce fuel and other protective measures.
    We are participants in this, big fires just to the north of us (fireline at 2.6 miles), we have been to the presentations, and have had a week of cutting, chipping and removal of material. Plus hundreds of hours of personal thinning and clearing. Our place is much safer, but we are not there yet.
    Vegetative growth is relentless.

    Nevertheless, large fires are in the future of the western American forests.
    Alarmists will make a big deal of these fires. But they are not and will not be caused by climate change.
    Fuel is there. It will burn.

    Most of the warming in recent decades has been from the ocean waters.

    • AndyG55 says:

      In fact, only the El Ninos have provided any warming.

      A step change late 1979 as the PDo started to switch

      Another step change in 1998-2001 as the ocean tried to balance with the continued strong solar activity.

      Now this latest El Nino, which looks like being nothing but a transient burp.

      Between those events…
