July 30 Was Much Hotter Prior To 1960

The percentage of the US over 95F and over 100F on July 30 plummeted after 1960.

On July 30, 1913 twenty one states were over 100F. AR AZ CA IA IL IN KS KY MD MI MO ND NE NJ OH OK SD TN TX WI WV. July 1913 also set the record for the world’s hottest temperature of 134F at Greenland Ranch, CA on July 10.

On July 30, 1917 twenty one states were over 100F. AZ CA CO GA IA ID IL KS MN MO MS NC ND NE OK SC SD TX UT VA WI

This is the point where climate alarmists will jump in and say “the US is only 5% of the Earth.” That is true, but we have very little temperature data for the rest of the world, making this sort of analysis impossible outside of the US, Japan and parts of Australia.


The United States is the only large area on Earth with reliable long term temperature data. The global temperature record is a complete farce, just like the people at NASA, NOAA and Berkeley Earth who work on it.

    … and parts of Australia.

    Does that mean some parts of Australia do have detailed records to be mined? Seems to me I did see somewhere that OZ also had drought and high temps during the ’30s.

    From Climate Central:
    Scientists Trace Climate-Heat Link Back to 1930s
    John Upton … March 9th, 2016
    The world endured a warm year as President Roosevelt wrangled with crippling drought during the first year of his second term. Scientists now say global temperatures that year, in 1937, were record-breaking for the time. The heat record fell again two years later. More records were set in 1940, 1941 and 1944.

    For the first time, climate scientists have identified greenhouse gas pollution’s role in global temperatures measured during record-breaking years back to 1937, as industrialized cities and nations continued burning coal to power factories and trains.

    Interesting he makes a fact free claim that it was due to CO2 back then.

    Over at Waats Up With That

    From Wikipedia: The record for the longest heat wave in the world is generally accepted to have been set in Marble Bar in Australia, where from October 31, 1923 to April 7, 1924 the temperature broke the 37.8 °C (100.0 °F) benchmark, setting the heat wave record at 160 days.

    tells us

    In March 2012, one of the greatest heat waves was observed in many regions of North America.

    Dunno bout you, but I don’t regard that great stretch of mild March weather as a heat wave (-:

    I would expect the rest of the list as it is today, Wikipedia being what it is, is suspect.
