Sixty-nine percent of the US has averaged below normal temperature this year, with thirty-four percent more than two degrees below normal.
Seventy-nine percent of the US has been above normal precipitation , and seventy-three percent of the US has been more than 110% of normal precipitation. The exact opposite of claims by climate alarmists, wet weather is associated with cool air – not warm air.
The average maximum daily temperature in the US has been coolest on record this year, more than seven degrees cooler than the record high year of 2012 – which had a lot of mild winter/spring days.
The number of hot days has plummeted since the 1930s. The last really hot year was 1988, when CO2 was below 350 PPM.
As a result of the cold, wet weather – lots of ski areas will be open on July 4th.
This comes five years since the New York Times announced the end of snow.
And thirteen years since they announced the endless summer.
And it has been almost nineteen years since The Independent and CRU announced that snow is a thing of the past.
So how did climate scientists and the press react to the record cold and their past failures? By ignoring it and announcing the hottest month ever.
And they linked the record hot weather in Paris to climate change.
Paris was much hotter in June, 1947.
In 1911, 40,000 people died from a 70 day long heatwave – unlike five day long heatwave of 2019. Apparently that was not caused by climate change.
Europe has a long history of hot weather, which climate scientists and the press choose to ignore.
Global temperatures were nowhere near a record.
The Washington Post claimed last week that the Arctic and Greenland had record melting in June.
June melt in Greenland was less than half of 2012.
The Washington Post believes that two days of mild weather in Greenland is climate, but 130 years of US temperature data is irrelevant.
Similarly, June 2012 sea ice melt was much larger than this year.
Climate scientists and the press lie constantly about the climate, because this is about taking control of public policy – just as Eisenhower warned.
The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present — and is gravely to be regarded.
Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.
