1936 Vs. The Official Hottest Year Ever

From June 15 to September 14, 1936. Clinton, Missouri had sixty-four days over 100 degrees, nineteen days over 110 degrees, a peak temperature of 118 degrees, and an average afternoon temperature of 103 degrees.

For the entire year of 1936, Clinton had seventy-two days over 100 degrees and twenty-three days over 110 degrees. Compare that to 2015, 2016 and 2017, when Clinton, Missouri had no days over 100 degrees.


The frequency of hot days in Missouri has dropped by more than 50% since the 1930’s.

People who say that heatwaves are getting worse, are frauds and liars.

    The left will hate you for this.

    The dates 15th June to 14th September seem random – is this because they suit your argument or is there a scientific reason ?

      A three month long heatwave is a pretty significant event, though I’m sure climate alarmists would love not to hear about it.

      • Mollington Bannister says:

        It’s a significant event but meaningless on its own. Here in the UK we are experiencing the longest spell of hot, dry weather I can remember since 1976 but it’s offset by a very cold winter with snow in mid March which is very rare in my area. It’s only at the end of the year that you can work out the overall temperature and, with current methods of measurement I doubt if that can be done accurately anyway !

    • Gator says:

      Sometimes we skeptics forget that only alarmists are allowed to call weather climate, and cherry pick convenient time trends.

  3. Mollington Bannister says:

    The point is that nobody should pick convenient time trends – it’s not helpful !

    Hi Tony, its J. from Austria.

    I found an article in “Oedenburer Zeitung” (Austria/Hungary), dated Monday, 10th of Juli 1936. They write:

    Die Hitzewelle in Amerika
    Chicago, 9. Juli. In den letzten 24 Stunden sind infolge der Hitze und beim Baden 23 Personen ums Leben gekommen. Die Temperatur beträgt weiterhin 48 Grad im Schatten. Der durch die Hitzewelle an den Feldfrüchten angerichtete Schaden wird bisher auf 300 Millionen Dollar geschätzt.

    The heatwave in America
    Chicago, July 9th. In the last 24 hours, 23 people died as a result of the heat and swimming. The temperature is still 48 degrees in the shade. The damage done to crops by the heatwave is estimated to be $ 300 million.

    Or in “Heidelberger Anzeiger” (German) from the 8th of Juli 1936, you find on page 7:

    50 Todesopfer der Hitzewelle in Amerika
    Chicago, 8. Juli. Der seit fünf Tagen andauernden Hitzewelle im Mittelwesten sind bisher über 50 Menschen zum Opfer gefallen. Davon ertranken über 20 Personen beim Baden, weitere 20 Personen erlitten Hitzschläge. Für Mittwoch wird ein weiterer Temperaturanstieg befürchtet. Die Wetterwarte Washington teilte mit, daß vor zwei oder drei Tagen keien Wetterveränderung zu erwarten sei. Infolgedessen muß mit weiteren Dürreschäden gerechnet werden.

    50 deaths from the heatwave in America
    Chicago, July 8th. The five-day heatwave in the Midwest has so far killed over 50 people. Of these more than 20 people drowned while bathing, another 20 people suffered heat stroke. For Wednesday, a further increase in temperature is feared. The weather station Washington said that two or three days ago weather change was not expected. As a result, further drought damage must be expected.

    Best J.
