    In July 2012 it reached 105 degrees in SE Wisconsin. It was really nasty weather so I stayed indoors. I can’t imagine 113!

    Here is an interesting off topic article.

      I was outside tearing down the old wooden deck on the back of the house that day. To be honest, I didn’t realize at the time it was that hot. Maybe where I am just a half mile from Milwaukee County’s northern border it was a little cooler.

      So my crazy conspiracy theory that AOC’s New Green Deal was
      the Old Red Trick wrapped in good intentions was right.
      And it basically confirms Edenhoffers “AGW has nothing to do with environment”.

      My other theory is that AOC has nothing contributed to the Green New Deal.
      This was written long time ago so that “her” 12 year apocalypse fits the Agenda 2030.
      A deliberate destruction of economy.

      “Isn’t the only hope for the planed that the industrialised civilisation collapse?
      Isn’t it our responsiblity to bring that about?”

      Maurice Strong.

      The club of rome paid the MIT to develope a computer model that predicted that our civilisation will collapse in 2040.
      (i guess that”s still the plan.they just replaced the coming ice age
      with AGW)

  2. Yep.
    The Global Warming people will never learn historical facts-Weather related or American History.
    Wait 0-25 yrs when we in KY have snow in May-June.
    Then they may think…naaah.

    Softball tourney, Texas, summer 1980, 113 degrees, no breeze.
    Infield sand so hot we would run to the outfield grass between pitches. Poor pitchers, catchers and umpire had no place to go. Baserunners shifting feet on the hot bags. Never so happy to lose a game and pitied the winners who had to play again.
    Laid in the shade of a tree and drank Gatoraid for an hour before I felt well enough to drive home.

    And of course Climate Scientists can tell us exactly what the drivers were for those extreme years in the 1930’s, right? No? But…but…

    Hasn’t the upper midwest been largely cooling overall for the last ~20 years?

    OT, but I had a beautiful drive from Bakersfield CA back to Sacramento yesterday along Hwy 99. Clear skies (esp as one got further north), and over ~4 hours I could watch small cumulus evolve into gorgeous cumulonimbus just east of the crest of the Sierras. Abundant energy was being pumped from the ground around Bakersfield (the drive back to town from the Elk Hills was spectacular), cotton/almond/citrus/grapes benefiting from our wet winter…and in the southern areas, a LOT of signs asking for more dams/more water storage (couldn’t agree more, btw). Have a great weekend all–and thanks for another great post, Tony!

    I will never understand why government agencies blame power companies for fires and then fine them… the government regulates how power companies make money and clearly understand that ALL revenue earned by power companies comes DIRECTLY from rate payers – i.e. the people the government is employed by. To fine a power company is to fine the rate payers directly. No one benefits. And ultimately, if the power lines caused a fire, the government environmental organizations should have started that fire FIRST and controlled it. The insane idea is that fires must be prevented. Nature does not work that way! Let the forests burn!
