Climate Alarmists Smash BS Record

Bloomberg says the Dallas-Fort Worth area “smashed” a heat record yesterday at 108 degrees.

U.S Heat Wave: Texas Smashes 1925 Heat Record As Power Prices Surge On Demand – Bloomberg Quint

They “smashed” the old July 19th temperature record by one degree.

However the July 18 record, set in 1956, was 109 degrees.

    There were not any paved runways in 1925. And less than 7% of public roads in the US were paved, about 150,000 miles worth. Today we have massive pavement jungles and 4,071,000 miles of paved roads. After adjusting for UHI, there was no record heat in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Zero.

      Yet the alarmists do just the opposite of what they should do by warming the present and cooling the past. It is knowing and blatant fraud!

  2. Patrick R Blasz says:

    While it was hot, who the H_ll knows whether it was accurate or not when accounting for UHI. I’m weary of all the Leftist BS.

    • Gator says:

      They never come anywhere close to making a valid UHI adjustment. Urban sprawl is the best thing that ever happened to climate alarmism.

    Excuse me, but do you see anything in the article about climate change, let alone “climate alarmism”? The only alarmism going on here is yours – the news coverage is just bog-standard media hype about weather. If you guys would just take it down a notch and carry on a civil conversation about the facts, we’d all be better off.

    • tonyheller says:

      Bloomberg pushes climate alarmism every day. No records were “smashed.” You are barking up the wrong tree.

    • Mark Luhman says:

      Most of the time the media takes the record high temperature the get from the National Weather Service which is wrong, most of the time that number is the record temperature for the last 30 years which is most of the time not even close to the all time high for that date. I know I had record highs reported to me by the mental midgets that is called media down here in Arizona, it takes some digging but eventually you find the real record but often the weather people pull those site off the internet, I don’t know the reason but my guess it does not fit their narrative of global warming and they don’t want people like me calling then US weather service lairs which they are when it comes to climate change.

    • I beg your pardon; to whom are you speaking? I suggest you direct your criticism elsewhere.

    • spike55 says:

      Michael, you obviously LIKE being LIED TO about climate.

      Some of us would prefer that TRUTH and the actual FACTS were brought into the open.

    • RAH says:

      Ha! Michael wants US to “take it down a notch” when day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, we’ve been bombarded with catastrophic climate change bull shit!

    • Gator says:

      Mikey is right! There is no alarmism in that article, just standard media hype about weather, the MSM is never alarmist about weather and never conflates weather with climate.

      I wouldn’t want to be an alarmist, and be anywhere near Mikey, because he takes on alarmists with a vengeance. I sure hope Mikey shares some of his past noble work campaigning against alarmism, I’m sure it’s a gripping tale.

    Most of Texas’ power is managed via ERCOT. If you care about their details, including the scope of their operation, check out the doco at

    Have fun!

    The all time record high temperature for Texas was set in 1936 – 120 degrees F – and tied in 1994.

    To put this in context, here is theDFW chart of 100 degree records from NOAA, with Greatest Annual (year with most 100+ days), Greatest Consecutive Days, Least Annual, and Greatest Number of Days (100+) in a month, consecutive or not.

    The winner? Depends on the race.
    #1 2011 had 71 days 100+, with the 2nd most consecutive
    #2 1980 had 69 days 100+, with the 1st most consecutive
    #3 1998 had 56 days 100+, with the 3rd most consecutive

    Check out the number of days for 1954, 1956, 1952, and 1951. They all made the top ten.

    https://www.weather.gov/fwd/danncon10
    The winner? 1980, with 42 days spanning June, July and August, including ALL 31 of the July Days.
    2nd Place: 2011, with 40 days spanning July and August, beginning July 2.

    • Steven Fraser says:

      Should also mention that the oldest 100+ August temp records are from 1901, 107F and 108F in at the end of the month. For September, the oldest is 1900, 102F mid-month.

      You can check out the daily records by month at

      http://www.intellicast.com/Local/History.aspx?month=8

      (select the month in the upper panel, to get the daily’s in the lower panel)

      The upper panel is interesting on its own. The only months that do not have a day 100+ are Nov, Dec, Jan and Feb. All the rest have at least 1 100F+ day.

      Yes, Texas can get hot in the summer, especially when the jet moves quite north of us as it is now, with winds from the south. When the jet returns (as will happen 3 or 4 days from now) we will be back in the upper 90’s (per the local NBC forecast).

      We will see.

    136 degree sidewalk? I wonder what temperature the grass was, and I wonder how alarmists still get away with a negligible UHI adjustment.

    The large city near me that I avoid was 13 degrees hotter than my property yesterday.
