Today’s Top Fraud From The New York Times

It is not your imagination, the New York Times is committing even more fraud than they used to.

It’s Not Your Imagination. Summers Are Getting Hotter. – The New York Times

The exact opposite is true. Summers are getting much cooler in the US. Average afternoon temperatures have plummeted.

Peak temperatures have plummeted.

The frequency of hot summer days has plummeted.

The areal coverage of hot weather has plummeted.

All metrics show that US summers are getting cooler. Then the article continues with this spectacular lie about the 1950’s not being hot..

The 1950’s were extremely hot and dry, and 1954 was the third hottest summer on record.

Perhaps they should read their own newspaper?


Here are a few of their heat wave stories from 1901. Search

The source of this misinformation was NASA’s James Hansen, who said the exact opposite 20 years ago, and showed that two of America’s five hottest years occurred in the 1950’s

The New York Times are all fake news, all the time. They seem to enjoy lying to the public.

    The NYT is absolutely, unequivocally, lying. My parents were born in 1931 and 1936, married in 1957, and both recall that most of the 1950’s were abysmally hot and dry in Wisconsin. The next severe drought they experienced was in 1988, which I myself remember clearly as being the driest and hottest of my life (remember that Yellowstone burned in ’88). We built our A-frame vacation cabin that year precisely because the ground was so dry that a bulldozer could get back in through the woods and make short work leveling a base for the pylons on which it was to be built. Had we tried in a typical year, the ground would have been a wet mix of clay and humus.

    When a purported “news” organization like the NYT contradicts itself using fuzzy logic and a mish-mosh of data sources to arrive at a predetermined conclusion, their integrity and reliability invariably suffers. That so many other “news” organizations jump on the bandwagon to promote Western civilization guilt and self-loathing, that’s when I give up on there being any credibility in any of the major news outlets of my youth.

    • Andy DC says:

      I checked multiple stations for Wisconsin, virtually for any major city, and not one of them has reached 90 degrees this July. In 1936, it reached 114 in Wisconsin

      Chicago has only had one 90 degree day this July and that was only low 90’s.
      A lot different that 1936, when Chicago Midway had over a week of 100 degree weather, with a high temperature of 109.

      Saginaw, MI reached 111 in 1936 but has failed to reach 90 this July.

      Not only were summers in the 1930’s hotter than recent summers, but hotter by a several orders of magnitude!

  2. RAH says:

    Perhaps an op-ed is in order? If you can find other related articles from that paper or others describing hot conditions in the 50’s and combine that with your charts it could be rather embarrassing for them.

  3. Rud Istvan says:

    Chart data from Jim Hansen. Purely qualitative with no numbers on either axis. And totally made up. More NYT fake news.

    • Steve Case says:

      The Times and Dr. Hansen are showing you Average temperatures and by using terms like “Extremely Hot” they are implying that they are Maximum temperatures. There’s a difference.

      Averages lose information – after all, the average of 49 and 51 is 50 and the average of 1 and 99 is also 50.

      What it amounts to is dishonest B.S.

      By the way even NOAA’s Climate at a Glance with it’s homogenized data tells you that New York’s Maximum temperatures May – October since 1930 have dropped.

    Tony – I posted this the other day – hoping that you have a response:

    Have you ever graphed up Los Angeles like this? We’ve had a pretty good stretch of warmer than normal weather (big deal) and there’s been a lot of attention in the media to it, with Gov Brown pushing his latest radical agenda.

    In looking at – – looks like there are 24-25 daily high temp records which were set prior to 1900 which are still standing, for the summer months of June – August (92 days). That’s a large percentage.

    On the sidebar, there would not have been any ‘urban heat island effect’ at the time, what-so-ever. To tie those old record highs today, they should be adjusted upward some 4-6 degrees F – ya think?

    Being able to pull out your graphics (wish I was so talented) and share them with readers, and challenge the reporters on their shrill and misinformed presentations, is my favorite pastime.

  5. Buck Turgidson says:

    It’s not your imagination, the NYT is waving their arms and fabricating stories and falsifying numbers again to promote their failing pseudoscience left-wing SJW extremist agenda. I will believe there is a climate ‘problem’ when NYT staff stop all business and personal air travel and hold all meetings by Skype. That goes for all the fed govt “climate science” agencies as well: no more travel for NOAA, NASA, NCAR staff. All meetings are skyped in order to help divert the impending global climate disaster Armageddon (which is due any day now…or any year now….or any decade now).

      • Kris J says:

        why?… because their is no congruence between their own actions and their cheap words. I think that’s what buck was saying..

  6. Advocatus Diaboli says:

    A possible quibble to take care of: the NYT chart talks about (supposedly) “Northern Hemisphere” summer temps, while Tony’s charts detail “U.S.” summer temps. A warmist could object that, while U.S. temperatures may be dropping, those for the Northern hemisphere as a whole could be rising.

    We could use charts (or else a discussion) to pre-empt that objection.

    • CheshireRed says:

      True, bit irony of ironies the US has by far the most advanced coverage over the longest period, far exceeding anything the NH has. Funny how the NYT go for a less complete data-set and ignore the better data…

      • Jack says:

        Wouldn’t Northern Hemisphere include the US data?

      • RAH says:

        The longest running instrumental temperature record is the Central England Temperature data set starting in 1659 but only covering a relatively small area. There are other long standing instruments record sets in the NH but none with such comprehensive coverage of an area equal to that of the US.

        And when it comes to the southern hemisphere the coverage is and always has been abysmal.

      • Advocatus Diaboli says:

        Thanks CR, that’ll work.

  7. Kris J says:

    Another fabulous expose tying together charts, graphics, and historical documents. Keep sticking it in and twisting it…

  8. Buck Turgidson says:

    Why? C’mon…really? Jet engine emissions…carbon dioxide… Increasing co2 ….climate armageddon a few weeks from now… Certain death for all esp women and children. I cant get the dots any closer together

  9. CheshireRed says:

    Does the US have a press regulatory body? If so, what are the prospects of challenging the NYT and holding them to account for what they publish? This piece was a ‘statement of fact’ NOT merely an opinion. That removes personal subjectivity as a defence and instead requires hard evidence to support their assertions, something they clearly do not have.

    • RAH says:

      This is not advertising in the technical sense of the word so the answer is no! Such a body would be unconstitutional.

    • Political junkie says:

      Canada has a voluntary “National NewsMedia Council.” Recently they rejected my complaint about a fake New York Times article reprinted in the Toronto Star.

      NYT claimed that some Louisiana natives were forced to relocate because of rising sea levels caused by climate change. In fact, the islands in the Mississippi Delta are sinking due to the well known subsidence in the area, oil and water extraction and flood controls upstream that interrupt silt deposition.

      Their rejection clumsily ignored the evidence and misrepresented the clearly worded complaint.

      Individual letters to the leading journalists and lawyers who are the council members asked whether the ‘reasoning’ for the rejection met their personal competency standards elicited no replies!

  10. Tom Halla says:

    The New York Times is using the classic cut-off-graph game. Starting the graph in 1981 is intended to deceive, as 1981 was just past the low point of a cooling trend. As Tony Heller noted, using the records from the rest of the 20th Century show something entirely different.

  11. Becky says:

    My mother grew up in West Texas, the daughter of a cotton farmer. She has vivid memories of the 1950s heat and drought. Crops failed across the region, and many farmers couldn’t outlast the drought. It was etched indelibly into her memory because drought generated an economic disaster for family and friends.

    To claim that the 1950s were cooler is an outright lie and unlike the even more outrageous lie about the 1930s, there are quite a few folks still around that are able to recall the time period. Just confirms my belief that they report from within an ideological vacuum.

    I’ve been laughing at our local Dallas weather stations as they discuss 100+ highs and the “real feeel” temp …it’s so tame compared to past years…the late 7os and early 80’s were consistently hotter. (My own memories.) We’re supposed to have low 90’s this week in Dallas…THAT is the odd thing, not temps over 100 in August.
