More Spectacular Climate Nonsense From The Capital Weather Gang

The Washington Post Capital Weather Gang are constantly working to outdo themselves in the fake news climate hysteria department.  Their latest claim is that July was California’s hottest month ever recorded.

On fire: July was California’s hottest month ever recorded – The Washington Post

Average maximum temperatures in California this July weren’t in the top ten, and were four degrees cooler than 1931.

The frequency of hot days wasn’t in the top ten either.

Minimum temperatures were the least cold, but most people don’t consider 64 degrees to be “hot.” However, the warmth in minimum temperatures is most likely due to urban heat island effects around the thermometers, rather than climate.

But the junk science is worse than it seems.  California’s two hottest stations do not have any data prior to 1940 in the GHCN database, so they need to be removed to do a fair comparison vs. 1931.  When Needles and Death Valley are removed, California July temperatures are dropping sharply and this year was not much above average. July 2018 was five degrees cooler than 1931.

This sort of nonsense is standard practice for the Capital Weather Gang, who claimed the Arctic was “super hot” on a day when temperatures made it up to 0C for a few hours in a small region near the North Pole.

    Our media does not do research, they just parrot the talking points they are given, investigative journalism died a long time ago.

  2. Taphonomic says:

    It was the hottest for the thermometers in the fires.

  3. Josh says:

    Place bets that Capital Weather Gang will not bring up UHI effects for causing the hottest July in California history.

    They are in the pocket of the Washington Post and obviously are part of the alarmist propaganda mill. I know some of those people. They are good forecasters, so they have that outlet to predict major weather events for the DC area. Some are skeptical to a greater or lesser extent about global warming, but they tow the party line to appease their bosses and keep their jobs.

    I have one good friend from NASA and another from NOAA. They both confide to me that they are skeptics, only because they know I am trustworthy with secrets.

    Jason Samenow never seems to learn. He wrote that Montreal set an all-time heat record on July 2. This was based on some guy’s Twitter feed. The trouble is, there was no record: the guy making the original claim recanted before Samenow published.

    They’re desperate. No one’s listening to them; no one cares. Here in Phoenix, it’s been a relatively mild summer – again. But this year it’s also been wet with an active monsoon season. Permanent SW drought also bust. People have simply tuned out. The boy who cried wolf.
