2017 : The Year Without An Intelligent Climate Scientist

In February, the Washington Post announced that 2017 was the year without a winter in the Northeast US, because it was too warm. They said spring had arrived early.

‘Fast-forward spring’: America’s February warmth is extreme, and it’s just getting started – The Washington Post

This week, Mashable said the exact opposite and declared 2017 to be the year without a spring in the Northeast US, because it was too cold. And they threw in that heatwaves are getting much worse because of global warming.

Tens of millions will roast in first major U.S. heat wave of the season

Apparently cold is the new hot, and gibberish from climate experts is the new normal. June heatwaves in the DC area are becoming much less common and much shorter than they were 100 years ago.

The forecast high today in the DC area is 94 degrees. On this date in 1902, it was 100 degrees, with every day except one above 90 degrees during the first half of June 1902.

Summer maximum temperatures in the US have plummeted since the 1930’s.

And the frequency of hot summer days has also plummeted in the US since the 1930’s.

There is zero indication that heatwaves are getting worse. The data shows the exact opposite. So how do these fraudulent studies get through peer review and into the press?

    Peer review. The peer of a fraud is a fraud. Academia, meet the press.

    During the heatwave of June 3-6, 1925, the daily high temperatures in Washington, DC were 99, 99, 100, 97. During the heatwave of May 29-31, 1991, the high temperatures in Washington, DC were 97, 98, 99. On June 9, 1874, DC reached 102 and on June 10, 1964 it reached 100.

    During the current heatwave, DC’s high temperature for the last 2 days were 93 and 95. By tomorrow the heatwave is supposed to break. Not a bad run of the mill summer heatwave, but there have been far worse ones even earlier in the season.

    Anyone got any specific data for France / French Alps region please? A friend is worried about ‘vanishing glaciers’ and it would be interesting to discover what the reality is compared to other European and indeed global glacier / skiing regions. Cheers.
