Lowering The CO2 To Lower The Heat

30 Jun 1974, Page 31 – Arizona Republic at Newspapers.com

I started college at ASU in 1974, which was the peak year of the global cooling scare. Phoenix had 18 consecutive days over 110 degrees that summer, breaking the records set in 1907 and 1940. Democrats believe they can stop heatwaves by reducing CO2 to 1974 levels.

    Phoenix don’t need no stinking CO2 to be hot:

    “The Sonoran Desert is an arid region covering approximately 100,000 square miles in southwestern Arizona and southeastern California, as well as most of Baja California and the western half of the state of Sonora, Mexico….This is the hottest of our North American deserts, but a distinctly bimodal rainfall pattern produces a high biological diversity. Winter storms from the Pacific nourish many West Coast annuals such as poppies and lupines, while well-developed summer monsoons host both annuals and woody plants originating from the south. Freezing conditions can be expected for a few nights in winter.”

    Winter this year has been simply spectacular – beautiful day after beautiful day – it had to have hit 80 F today and not a cloud in the sky. I love th outdoors, walk several times a day every day and commute to work on a motorcycle; so cold morning rides are, well, cold. This year though, has been just amazing.

    We were in Tucson that week for a conference at the U.
    Don’t remember the exact location, but do remember the heat.
    One morning we visited the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum.
    10 AM — 110° [I think].
    Great place. Go when it is cooler.

    In 1907 Phoenix was barely 8,000 people. In 1940, 64,000. In 1970, 582K.
    Today, 1.5 Million
    On June 20, 1990 we hit 120F. That broke the previous record of 118 in 1911.
    This past late June, we had ten days it hit 115F

    Um…. can all y’all say URBAN HEAT ISLAND?
    Sure you can!
