July 10, 1936 – Hottest Day On Record in Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and West Virginia

On July 10, 1936 West Virginia reached 112 degrees, Pennsylvania reached 111 degrees, New Jersey 110 degrees and Maryland 109 degrees. Those were the hottest temperatures ever recorded in those states.  Most of the US east of the Rockies was over 100 degrees. Much of Minnesota was over 110 degrees.

Atmospheric CO2 was below 310 PPM at the time. The frequency of July 10 hot weather has plummeted in the US over the last century, and is quite rare now.

NOAA and the EPA depend on climate scam money for $billions in funding, so they simply lie about heat and generate fraudulent graphs which show the exact opposite of their own underlying data.

    What exactly is going on with the second graph that gives it the uptick near the end?

    Nightime temperatures are very easy to manipulate. The minimum temperature difference between a hollow in an open, undeveloped area compared to a high spot at a densely populated site can easily be 10-20 degrees. Not nearly as much of a difference during daytime. That is why maximum temperatures are a far better climate indicator than minimum temperatures.

    It was interesting that on July 10, 1936 it was over 100 degrees in Oakland, MD, which is a high spot in the Alleghany Plateau. During summers from the 1960’s through the 2000’s, I would play golf at Oakland during summer heatwaves to avoid the DC heat. I don’t recall it ever being over 90 degrees there during my experience. There was a thermometer right outside the clubhouse, plus a bank thermometer in town. So if you can’t come within 10 degrees of a temperature from 81 years ago, it hardly sounds as if we are experiencing a climate crisis that alarmists claim will kill us all!

    Folks are from western Pennsylvania.
    Warren (dad’s area) appears as 99°.
    South of there (mom’s area) seems to have gone past 3 digits.
    I remember a summer in the mid-1950s (maybe ’54 or ’55 ??)
    We had trouble sleeping. There was electricity but not air conditioning.
    Coal cuts nearby had water in them. We kids cooled off there.
    A real stream was a few miles away — too far in that heat.
    Very rural area — and still is.

    The NOAA graph is suspicious on its face. What exactly is an “unusually” hot summer temperature?

    Tony’s graph provides a more objective metric, % of stations over a specified temp level.

    Still, it would be useful to give a data reference for Tony’s graph. A partisan warmist could object that while NOAA’s graph cites a source, none is stated in Tony’s graph.

    Think like a chess player: you want to slowly but surely deprive your opponent of all counterplay.

    Tony, I have one wish. When mentioning the carbon dioxide concentration, please say “Estimated well-mixed background concentration without uncertainty ranges”, for that’d be more accurate, wouldn’t you say.
