Imaginary Record Heat In The East

The dreaded “heat index” at work.

Eastern Seaboard Braces for Possible Record-Breaking Heat Wave – WSJ

Of the one hundred hottest days in the Northeastern US, seventy-one occurred before 1956, and eighty occurred with CO2 below 350 PPM. The last hot weather occurred in 2011, right before I moved to Maryland.

The five hottest days in the Northeast were 7/3/1911, 7/4/1911, 7/10/1936, 7/5/1911 and 8/7/1918.

Heat in New York City peaked more than 60 years ago, and has been declining ever since.


Nothing new about these exaggerations though – people have been doing it for as long as they have been able to speak.


every season is sure to be ” extraordinary,” almost every month one of the driest or wettest, or windiest, within or hottest, ever known. Much observation, which ought to correct a tendency to exaggerate, seems in some minds to have rather a tendency to increase it.

    I’m more concerned about the stupidity index. If you add the MSM’s input to the average IQ of modern humans, the stupidity index is off the charts, record breaking and truly dangerous. Extinction is imminent.

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

      Wanna see a big part of what is driving the stupidity index up just watch the press. Recent Chopper Presser. Listen to the questions. So reporters get rare and precious chance to ask the POTUS a question and with all of the things going on in the world what “issue” do about half of them focus on? Bet you can guess without watching.

        I miss the days when an anti-American politician would have been shamed and voted out of office. I also miss the days when this sort of crap was virtually unheard of.

        Why do leftists always want to tear down everything of value? And how much more can we afford? The reason they are so bold now is because they have been so successful in the past. It’s the old Martin Niemoller poem, at our door.
