Millions Dead In 1931 Is Weather, But A Few Thousand Dead In 2003 Is Climate.

On June 30, 1931 almost the entire US was over 90F, and a large percentage was over 100F. Temperatures reached 105 in Alabama, 106 in Arkansas, 111 in Arizona, 109 in California, 100 in Colorado, 102 in Florida, 109 in Georgia, 104 in Iowa, 107 in Illinois, 105 in Indiana, 102 in Kansas, 102 in Louisiana, 101 in Michigan, 105 in  Minnesota, 106 in Missouri, 105 in Mississippi,  101 in North Carolina, 102 in North Dakota, 103 in Nebraska, 100 in New York, 104 in Oklahoma, 104 in South Carolina, 108 in South Dakota, 104 in Tennessee, 101 in Texas, 100 in Utah, 103 in Virginia and 105 in Wisconsin.

This sort of heat is incomprehensible now. If it did happen, 97% of government climate experts would say they were certain it was due to CO2.

Later that summer, China was hit by the worst floods in history.

Two million dead in 1931 is just weather, but 1,500 dead in 2003 is climate and demands government action.

    No article on this?

    “A new paper published in the Journal of Climate reveals that the lower part of the Earth’s atmosphere has warmed much faster since 1979 than scientists relying on satellite data had previously thought.

    Researchers from Remote Sensing Systems (RSS), based in California, have released a substantially revised version of their lower tropospheric temperature record.

    After correcting for problems caused by the decaying orbit of satellites, as well as other factors, they have produced a new record showing 36% faster warming since 1979 and nearly 140% faster (e.g. 2.4 times faster) warming since 1998. This is in comparison to the previous version 3 of the lower tropospheric temperature (TLT) data published in 2009.

    Climate sceptics have long claimed that satellite data shows global warming to be less pronounced that observational data collected on the Earth’s surface. This new correction to the RSS data substantially undermines that argument. The new data actually shows more warming than has been observed on the surface, though still slightly less than predicted in most climate models.”

      Ha! See you and raise you!
      Another paper shows that climate models and climate reality vary – greatly

      “A new paper has been published in Geophysical Research Letters that shows once again, that climate models and reality significantly vary. It confirms what Dr. John Christy has been saying (see figure below). The paper also references Dr. Judith Curry and her work.
      Pronounced differences between observed and CMIP5-simulated multidecadal climate variability in the twentieth century
      Plain Language Summary
      Global and regional warming trends over the course of the twentieth century have been nonuniform, with decadal and longer periods of faster or slower warming, or even cooling. Here we show that state-of-the-art global models used to predict climate fail to adequately reproduce such multidecadal climate variations. In particular, the models underestimate the magnitude of the observed variability and misrepresent its spatial pattern. Therefore, our ability to interpret the observed climate change using these models is limited.

      Identification and dynamical attribution of multidecadal climate undulations to either variations in external forcings or to internal sources is one of the most important topics of modern climate science, especially in conjunction with the issue of human-induced global warming. Here we utilize ensembles of twentieth century climate simulations to isolate the forced signal and residual internal variability in a network of observed and modeled climate indices. The observed internal variability so estimated exhibits a pronounced multidecadal mode with a distinctive spatiotemporal signature, which is altogether absent in model simulations. This single mode explains a major fraction of model-data differences over the entire climate index network considered; it may reflect either biases in the models’ forced response or models’ lack
      of requisite internal dynamics, or a combination of both.”

      Yes Griff, the alarmist at RSS have been working on fabricating a reason for this “Adjustment™” for a LONG TIME

      IT IS BOGUS,

      Just like the removal of the 1940’s peak is BOGUS.

      Roy Spencer showed that their “Adjustments™” to the TMT were also BOGUS.

      UAH has been shown to an almost exact match to NOAA’s own satellite.

    • AndyG55 says:

      It really is a pity that Carl Mears would decide to RUIN his reputation for scientific integrity like that.

      But MONEY and PEER PRESSURE will do that to the weak willed.

    • AndyG55 says:

      As soon as you see Zeke Hausfather’s name on anything …

      … you KNOW its a scam.

    • tonyheller says:

      Actually Griff, I wrote an article about that in January. You must have missed it.

    • gator69 says:

      Gee Ms Griff, I don’t see the names of Dr’s Spencer or Christy anywhere on that “paper”? Did they both die together in a fiery car crash? Why were they not included? Is it because they do not hate poor brown people?

    Deaths from extreme weather have declined by up to 95% since the 1920s-

    To the lyin’ liberals who say that repeal of Obamacare will cost hundreds of thousands of lives:
    See graph –
    See article –
    The data are from the CDC:

    Obamacare, passed in 2010, has bent the mortality curve UPWARDS.
