    While not in the Midwest, Phoenix is typically a hot place to live.

    Update 2018 from Phoenix, Arizona: Grateful for the slow start to summer. We are just barely cresting into triple digits. And recall, Phoenix was predicted to be unlivable due to Mann-Made Global Warming. (See “Bird on Fire”).

    Note to haters: Phoenix is just fine.

      I started at ASU in 1974. During June and July, 1974 Phoenix had 19 consecutive days over 110 degrees, the all-time record.

    Thanks for the info Tony. Much appreciated. Your graphs are the truth and they are amazing. I would not have wanted to live during the 1930s.

      Tony, you are a good computer expert. I have a question. I want to embed the National Weather Service’s Watches and Warnings to my website as well as a live Radar thing. How am I able to do this? Thanks,

    Every idiot knows that the 1930’s were back in the Precambrian Era, long before the thermometer was invented, long before the dinosaur had been domesticated per Fred Flintstone! How dare you try to deceive the public, with those totally misleading charts provided by Big Oil! Shame on you!
