1934 : 100 Degrees In Alaska

On July 26, 1934, thirty states (including Alaska) were over 100 degrees.  The only state which didn’t make it above 90 degrees was Rhode Island. Many people died, and Dayton, Ohio never cooled below 80 degrees over a two day period.

But 1934 wasn’t hottest July 26 – 1930, 1931, 1936, 1939, 1952 and 1914 were all hotter.

There hasn’t been a really hot July 26 in over 60 years, and weather as hot as the 1930’s is inconceivable now.

On July 14, 1915 – Juneau, Alaska was 90 degrees.

But the press is certain that 90 degrees in southern Alaska is a sign of the apocalypse. They scan the globe for one localized hot temperature to prove that weather is climate.

    Tony, just this afternoon I saw on the Weather Channel about the horrible heat wave in Alaska. Temperatures in the 80’s. Wow! It sure must be a sign of climate change. Of course you put things in perspective by pointing out that in 1934 it was 100. In college I discovered I had no head for math so I changed my major from physics to history. A degree in history gives me a good appreciation for climate historical research on the planet. It tells us so much. So I can easily dismiss the global warming hoax.

    During the last ice age with a mile or more of ice over much of N.America, large parts of Alaska were grassland with warm summers. What’s that all about then!!!!!

    My guess is that as soon as the PDO gets solidly back into it’s negative phase, temps in Alaska will step back down again. Perhaps there will be a change for the Arctic sea ice as well.

    Note: I placed the PDO phase indicators on the NOAA map.
