June 19 used to be a hot day in the US prior to 1960, but temperatures have declined sharply over the past century. The five hottest June 19ths in the US were 1933, 1931 1910, 1936 and 1988 – the year Hansen predicted an increase in heatwaves before Congress.
On this date in 1933, most of the US was over 90 degrees, and a large percentage was over 100 degrees. New Ulm, Minnesota was 102 degrees, twenty-seven degrees warmer than today’s forecast maximum.
This week in 1988, James Hansen gave his testimony to Congress and said he was 99% certain the heat was caused by CO2 and said temperatures would get much hotter. That was the last really hot June 19 in the US.
The New York Times was (of course) very happy to assist Hansen in his scam, saying that the cooling trend was a “long expected warming trend.”
Ten years earlier, the same New York Times said there was “no end in sight to the 30 year cooling trend”
Global warming is mass superstition, hysteria and fraud, driven by fake scientists, fake journalists and fake politicians. If Donald Trump is going to drain the swamp, he needs to remove the criminals behind the global warming scam.
