The New York Times has become completely shameless with their climate fraud. They have a new web page which claims to show the increase in the number of 90 degree days “Than When You Were Born.”
The first place I tried it our was Martinsburg, West Virginia, which NOAA has data for back to 1926. I entered 1926 into the New York Times web page, and a disclaimer popped up saying they don’t have any data before the 1960’s.
Then they claim the number of 90 degree days has increased since 1960 from 21 to 27.
This is completely fraudulent. According to the official NOAA temperature record, the number of 90 degree days at Martinsburg has decreased from 25 to 23 days per year since 1960. The New York Times graph bears no resemblance to the actual data.
But the New York Times fraud gets much worse. Since the 1930’s, the frequency of 90 degree days is down by more than 60%. No wonder they cut out the pre-1960’s data, which is readily available from the NOAA web site.
Instead of showing the actual large decline in the frequency of 90 degree days, they show an imaginary projected increase based on computer models – which don’t understand the past, much less the future.
Temperatures were very hot before 1960, as reported in the New York Times.
Australia also had their worst heatwave on record during January of 1896.
The 1901 heatwave killed thousands of people.
The 1911 heatwave killed thousands of people in New England and across the country.
Soviet Pravda had an 80% rule. Eighty percent of their propaganda had to be credible. The New York Times is operating far below the old Soviet standard.
