    Until the past 15-18 or so months, I listened to NPR in the car quite a bit. Since then, I’ve seen them produce a headlines about climate-this/climate-that and on a couple of occasions I’ve emailed asking for clarification on information I’ve seen that contradicts what they’ve claimed. No responses have been provided. So, I guess what I’m saying is: I’ve long been a supporter of PBS/NPR. I’ve more recently been feeling pretty let down by them…and I guess at this point, I’m thinking that I’m pretty much done with them.

    To show how volatile and extreme the weather was in the 1930’s, only a week after December 23, 1933, New England was hit by a historic cold wave. Boston set their all time December low temperature record, -17 F. In interior New England, temperatures dropped to an amazing -50 F.

    January 1934 was a mild winter in the east, but February 1934 flipped again and was the coldest month on record in many places. Boston, that has just set their all time low record in December 1933 took that record out with -18 F in February 1934. NYC set their all time record with -15 F.

    Being at the peak of the Depression, with many homeless or destitute, and with coal shortages as well, there was a great deal of suffering

    That was followed by the extreme hot, dry summer of 1934, which produced the worst US crop on record in terms of percentage reduction from the average, around 50%. Missouri had only 10% of its average corn crop that summer.

    So if alarmists want to beat the drums about extreme weather, the 1930’s had extreme weather that was much, much worse.

    Speaking of declining temps, check out the following:

    “But Dilley, a former NOAA meteorologist, argues that Earth is “coming off” a 230-year global warming cycle and moving on to a 120-year cooling period.”
