The Cult Of Fake Statistics

It isn’t that our liberal friends are ignorant. It is just that they know so much that isn’t so.

– Ronald Reagan

I posted a video earlier documenting that the US was coolest and wettest on record since October. Then someone named Dave Carlson steps in and explains that the record cold is proof of record heat. Followed by Brian Johnson who claims that India just set their all time record of 123.8F.

Sounds bad … we really messed the climate up.  Except that it was just as hot or hotter in India in 1935, and 1953, and 1966 ….

08 Jun 1935 – HEAT WAVE – Trove

12 Jun 1953, 1 – The Daily Oklahoman at

Same temperature as 1935.

27 May 1935 – TRAGIC HEAT WAVE

And similar to 1966.

p4 – 15 Jun 1966 – The Canberra Times (ACT : 1926 – 1995) 

Climate alarmism is based largely on fake statistics, and always has been.

    Hot in India? Tell me it isn’t so!

    A hot day somewhere on the planet means precisely nothing.

      Not true! It means that we get to hear again, ad nauseam, how this perfectly normal hot day proves that man is killing the planet by simply living on it. You forget that everything is proof of CAGW, especially hot days in hot climates during hot seasons.

      Remember it’s not the heat, it’s the stupidity.

        That would be a hilarious t-shirt!

        A funny picture of something, then:
        “Climate Change: It’s not the Heat, it’s the Stupidity…”

        Love it!!

      However to me it seems pretty revealing that after decades of supposed “global warming” the official all time surface high of 134 deg. F set July 10, 1913 at what is now called Furnace Creek in Death Valley has not been broken anywhere on earth!

      The all time official ground temperature reading of 215 deg. F set at the same place July 15, 1972 has also gone unchallenged anywhere on earth.

      • TeaPartyGeezer says:

        215 degrees F ??

        I don’t think so. Typo?

        • DHR says:

          Ground temperature is the temperature of the ground. Different from air temperature normally measured about 6 feet above ground. Wikipedia says the record is 201F (in Death Valley) unverified. I do not know where the 215F number comes from.

          • rah says:

            It was 201. It was a typo. Sorry. Typing early in the morning and trying to get it out before I left to go on a run.
            But to Tony’s point. During basic training in July at Ft. Jackson, SC two soldiers in my training platoon had to go in for burns of the palm of their hands. Our DI was old school and doing D&C (Drill & Ceremony) out on an asphalt parking lot with weapons he had us in the “front lean and rest” and that is how their palms got burned. It DOES get one’s attention and that is part of what D&C is all about. Listening to commands with instant compliance. We had one trainee die from heat stroke and multiple other heat injuries in my training battalion when I went through the summer of 1980.

    Meanwhile, yesterday El Paso, TX had their *coldest* ever recorded June 10th. But I guess those records don’t count?

    • arn says:

      We live in a bizarr world where a hot summer in California
      gets 100* more attention than the coolest winter the whole country suffered.

      Somehow 1 state is so far more than 50 states when it fits the narrative.

      Controle the media and you controle reality.

    The record cold is due to record heat meme gives alarmists the opportunity to explain that AGW is the cause for every single weather event that has ever occurred. Does this not make AGW unfalsifiable? It seems that AGW is the universal antidote!

    • arn says:

      It is far more than that,as

      once the co2 tax starts they can increase the tax forever
      as they can always claim that we still didn’t have made enough(paid enough) to stop AGW.

    From the Big Bang Theory show:
    Leonard: So, hot in India?
    Dr. Koothrappali: Of course it is, it always is. It’s India. Now, what do have to say for yourself?
    Leonard: Uh, that is a beautiful tapestry.

    These miscreants look back at history and weep at all the missed opportunities to have grown government.
