Drudge is linking to articles claiming record heat in the East and the Midwest. As always, fake news. June 30 heat has dropped off sharply since the peak in 1901, with almost all of the coolest years coming after Hansen’s 1988 testimony to Congress.
New York isn’t forecast to have any 100 degree days this week, but this week in 1901 temperatures in New York were over 100 degrees on several days, and hundreds of people were dying on the streets. On June 29, 1936 – Indiana was 111 degrees – the first of many days over 110 degrees that summer.
Later in July 1901, the heatwave expanded to Europe
And continued into August.
Climate alarmism depends on a lack of knowledge of history, combined with a press corps willing to print fake news. Cold and rainy in Boulder right now, and the greenest I have ever seen it at the end of June.
