1895-1896 : Two Hottest May 9ths In The US

Today will be one of the coldest May 9ths on record in the US.  The two hottest occurred in 1895 and 1896.

Arizona had their record heatwave in 1896. Parker, Az had seven consecutive days over 120 degrees, a record only matched in 1905.

January, 1896 was the hottest month on record in New South Wales.

Europe was hot in 1896.

17 Jul 1896 – HEAT-WAVE IN EUROPE.

A ten day heatwave during August 1896 killed thousands of people in the US, many of them in New York.

That was also an important year for global warming junk science.

As early as in 1896, Swedish physicist Arrhenius proposed that the presence of atmospheric greenhouse gases may result in warmer surface temperatures on Earth than a simple radiative balance would imply. A comparison between measured surface temperatures and estimated effective temperatures (assuming the planets behave like black bodies and are at radiational equilibrium) of the planets in our solar system has later revealed that planets with thick atmospheres, such as Venus and Earth, have a warmer surface than a simple radiation equilibrium can explain (Houghton 1991). The high surface temperature can be attributed to the greenhouse effect proposed by Arrhenius


After 125 years of fact-free global warming group think, scientists now say global warming causes an “early spring.”

The record cold and snow outside my door disagrees with 97% of junk climate scientists.

    That is classic fact-free reportage from NPR (National Public Radio)

    In 1896, NOBODY had air conditioning. It wasn’t invented until 1902 DUH

    What New Yorkers had in 1896 was piles of stinking rotting horse manure and swarms of flies thicker than fog. The 1890s were also marked by major outbreaks of influenza (Russian flu) that were quite lethal, followed by the devastating Spanish flu in 1918. Vaccinations were not developed until 1938

    Today, the progressive moms of Boulder fervently believe that climate change will kill us all, fracking is poisoning their precious children, and vaccinations cause autism.

    This is what you get with public education and NPR journalism

    Society is retro-evolving before our eyes.

    From Ryan Maue’s twitter…Colorado being buried in the mountains…Some three foot locations…Upper Colorado Snowpack is at 15″…Can still be a big runoff year with these kinds of snow thru May. Fingers crossed.

      Right you are, Psalmon.

      The ink-stained wretches of the lame-stream media are already tooling up the next series of “news” articles about the upcoming catastrophies related to absolutely normal spring melt-off and run-off in the Colorado drainages – – linked absolutely to “climate change”

      NCAR, NOAA, and NASA will sonorously intone that this weather is “unprecedented” and “worse than we ever imagined”.

      Perhaps Kath Hayhoe will come to town and run Boulder Creek in an inner tube to dramatize the “life-threatening, carbon-accelerated, doom-certifying, OMG We’re all gonna DIE!!” weather phenomena.

      We have expanded mental-health facilities here in the People’s Republic of Boulder, and perhaps Dr. Hayhoe should avail herself of the services. Maybe puff a doobie too.
