It was extremely hot that day, when a cold front came through at 5PM and spawned the tornado.

That year brought record heat around the world. The two hottest May 9ths in the US 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.

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


The low CO2 levels in 1896 must have been responsible for the record heat.


In years gone by it was considered eminently proper in the east and on the Pacific coast as well to refer to Kansas as figuratively the regular stamping ground of the tornado.

Meanwhile, climate alarmists continue their usual pack of lies, making baseless claims which are the exact opposite of reality.
