The Heatwave Of May 11, 1896

On this date in 1896, the eastern US was experiencing an ongoing amazing heat wave. Almost the entire eastern US was over 80 degrees, and much of it was over 90 degrees. Selinsgrove, PA was 93 degrees, almost 40 degrees warmer than today’s forecast.

The hottest place in the country was Paris, Illinois – which reached 99 degrees. The three hottest May 11ths at Paris, Illinois were 1896, 1916 and 1922.

Almost 19% of USHCN stations reached 90 degrees on May 11, 1896.

There were also big heatwaves on this date in 1963, 1962 and 1916. The 1963 heatwave brought temperatures of 102 degrees to Kansas.

If heatwaves like this happened now, climate experts would say that they were 99% certain it was due to man-made CO2, and that government action is required.  This is because they aren’t scientists and don’t follow any legitimate scientific method.

    It’s awful here in Cayuga, Ontario, overcast, 7 C, and windy with a little rain. But in the Norfolk weather record there have been better days. The record stands at 30 C from 1881. The low was-3 C in 1966. No rhyme or reason.

    How can you possibly compare cockeyed readings from primative thermometers during the 19th Century to today’s experly interpolated and extraplolated temperatures derived by leading climate sceientists like Griff? Isn’t it obvious, if the temperatures do not fit the settlec science, they must be rejected!

    That’s right! Burn more oil and coal! And don’t believe what they tell you about them fumes either. Just burn that coal in your house, and shut all ventilation – the fumes make you stronger! All of these people with degrees don’t really know anything.

      These sort of idiotic remarks are why climate alarmists are so reviled.

      Back during the winter of 1981-82 at what was then Camp McCoy, WI we lived in old WW II barracks that still used coal fired heating for a month. It worked great in subzero weather and no fumes bothered us. The only noticeable difference from using gas or oil heating was the guys running the coal truck came by at about 02:00 every morning to restock the bin and I would wake up every time.

      Your hyperbolic rant based on ignorance will gain you nothing but disdain here. The US never has nor never will become like London in 1952 though those enlightened individuals that live in the valley in the LA area have at times tried to make it that way.
