July 20, 1934 – 118 Degrees In Iowa

July 20, 1934 was the hottest day in Iowa’s history. Keokuk, Iowa reached 118 degrees. Almost the entire country was over 90 degrees, almost half was over 100 degrees, and a large section of the Midwest was over 110 degrees.

It was also the hottest day on record outside Omaha, Nebraska – where temperatures reached 116 degrees. Since then, peak summer maximum temperatures have plummeted.

The average maximum temperature that day across the US was 95 degrees, six degrees hotter than last year, which NOAA says was the hottest year on record.

Eighty percent of the US was in drought.

The US simply doesn’t get hot weather like that any more.

Climate alarmists now get hysterical about a hot day in Arizona, which happens every June.

1934 was the hottest year on record in the US. This wrecked global warming theory, so NASA and NOAA simply changed the data to make the heat go away.

      Yes, the B.S. that government scientists and the news media is getting away with is truly a triumph of propaganda.

      I’ve been tracking Tony’s You Tubes and he’s gaining steam with over 1200 views per day since July 8th. (-:

  2. Iowa Climate says:

    Forecast is 100 today in Des Moines. My grandfathers SUV caused it to be much hotter in the past.

    Can you comment on this article which said June 2017 was the third hottest on record – https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2017/jul/19/third-hottest-june-puts-2017-on-track-to-make-trifecta-of-hottest-years

    • RAH says:

      The bottom graph which flashes the temperature “adjustments” made to the record between 1999 and present makes it pretty clear how they came up with the claim that this June was the 3rd hottest on record.

    • CheshireRed says:

      Another way of reading those ‘figures’ is that June 2017 was the coldest June for 3 years and included the coldest-ever NH temperature on record in June, of -33C in Greenland.

      For some reason this interpretation of the SAME data was over-looked by the Guardian.

    • tonyheller says:

      The global temperature record is a farce. It is so poor, people can manipulate it to come up with any answer they want to achieve.

    In UAH , June 2017 was 8th warmest /39

    In RSS V3, June 2017 was 7th warmest/39

    Ignore the BS from GISS etc, its fabricated junk !!

    • AndyG55 says:

      That was a reply to Philip.

      And of course, the 7000-8000 years before the LIA, (the COLDEST period in 10,000 years) were almost certainly considerably warmer.


      • RAH says:

        The ‘Holocene’ is the current epoch we live in. Alarmists want to say we’re at the beginning of a new epoch they want to name the ‘Anthropocene’ because they claim that humans are now driving the climate and thus the weather. Skeptics sneer at those bozos that if there is a new epoch it should be named the ‘Adjustocene’ to reflect a time when man adjusted the data and records contrary to what is really happening and has happened with the climate and weather.

        • RAH says:

          Many “adjustments” in many ways. So far this year NOAA has named two tropical storms that they have no data justified that classification as per their own definition of it and in both cases the hurricane hunter data did not support their claim. Thus the hurricane/tropical storm record will become even more inflated and have less valid historical context than it did before.

          • Frank K. says:

            Re: naming storms.

            Ever since “The Weather Channel” started naming low pressure systems (with idiotic names as well), the naming of any weather system by the mainstream weather media has become as meaningless as far as I’m concerned…

  5. Philip says:

    Thanks AndyG55 for the video and all others for your comments.

  6. Frank K. says:

    I came across this table of record high temperatures by state.


    It has the record high in Iowa of 118F on July 20, 1934, as noted by Tony in this post.

    Do you notice something? The vast majority of the high temperature records stretch back to the mid and early 20th century. In Colorado, the record is 118F on July 11, 1888! How can this be consistent with a “warming world”?

    Climate Normals flatlined and cooled in my climate zone. 2002 vs 2017 version.
    31-60 38.3/36.2 (-2.1)
    41-70 37.9/36.1 (-1.8)
    51- 80 37.6/36.2 (-1.4)
    61-90 37.5/36.6 (-0.9)
    71-00 37.8/37.2 (-0.6)
    81-10 37.9/37.9 (0)

    They create a nice hockey stick. Wow, how pathetic!

  8. Brian D says:

    Record highs for July 20th in the Midwest/Plains region.
