The Other Side Of 1934

I’ve been presenting a lot of information about the record heat of 1934, but that year also brought record cold to the Northeast US. February 9, 1934 was the coldest night on record in the Northeast, and the third coldest day.

Every location in the Northeast was below 0F (-18C) that night, and the average minimum temperature was -22F. Coldest location was -52F at Stillwater Reservoir, NY.

That afternoon, no place in the Northeast US made it above freezing. The average maximum temperature was 3F.

A few months later the New York Times was reporting on record heat and drought.

TimesMachine: July 25, 1934 –

Climate experts want to return us to the stable, low CO2 atmosphere of 1934 – because they say higher levels of CO2 cause extreme weather.

    Tony! You’ll soon have to move out of Colorado ….


    Are the words “America” and “American” potentially offensive? Maybe not, a university in Colorado has decided.

    According to reports, a draft version of Colorado State University’s “Inclusive Language Guide” included “America” and “American” among words deemed to be non-inclusive.

    What about 2019?

    Second European heatwave this week: new temp records in Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, UK (probably) and in Paris.

    also record number of arctic fires, arctic sea ice extent again at lowest for date.

    Who cares about 1934?

    when annually in Europe and the arctic new high temp/low ice records get set?

      one day is NOT a heatwave.. griffool.

      You are being CONNED, as always, because you don’t have a single functional brain-cell of your own.

      One tiny little patch over the UK,

      But you don’t give a stuff about the COLD in most of Russia, do you.

      Seems you HATE Russians and Mongolians just as much as you HATE brown people..

      A slimy little RACIST and a CLIMATE CHANGE DENIER

      That’s all you are, griffool.

      What about the millions of people your BS alarmism is starving to death annually.

      Heat waves happen naturally, just like wild fires. And there is more ice in the Arctic now than the average of the past 9000 years.

      Why do you hate poor brown people Ms Griff?

      Who the hell cares about what you want you Bozo? Don’t like the content then go elsewhere. It’s Tony’s blog. Besides you can’t have records without having a history to put them in context fool!

      where have you been during the supercold winter in the USA?
      I mean you do not care about your promise to no longer post here(remember that commendement?)

      So why are several supercold month in the USA less than a few superhot days in Europe?

    What the heck if going on Tony? When I try to post an image I get a “blocked” message.

    Ever notice that the extremes in the weather during the mid 1930’s correspond fairly closely with a pretty deep solar minimum? Solar cycle 16 ended Sept. 1933. It was the last of a set of cycles that were of medium to low amplitude and had 568 spotless days. Cycle 17 was the start of a period of several solar cycles that were of average or above average amplitude ended by Cycle 24 that we are now nearing the end of.
    It has always seemed to me that that when solar activity gets low the earths jet streams get more loopy or IOW tend to have periods of deeper meridional flow resulting in greater extremes in weather.

    The reason I know the phony alarmists are Lying , is the elimination of any discussion concerning the sun and it’s effect on temperature.
    Can they comprehend our world with 25%+ or – output of the sun????

    I do believe 1936 was similar with record cold across N Central US. Extreme years 1934 and 1936.

  7. Brian D says:

    EU has seen record or near record highs, and record or near record lows this July. Even snowed in the mountains of E Europe. All the hubbaloo over the heat wave here in the states, yet no real mention of the record lows in Texas this month. OOOH Kathy….Kathy!??
