This Date 85 Years Ago

On this date in 1934, it was 101 degrees in Chicago and John Dillinger was killed. Hundreds of people were dying in the heat across the country, and Missouri was in the middle of eight consecutive days over 110F.

Missouri has been over 110F on forty days since 1895.  The last time was 1980, and the other 39 days were more than 60 years ago. All were below 350 PPM CO2.

And eighty percent of the US was in drought.

All this was bad, but at least they didn’t have the dreaded heat index – which makes progressives uncomfortable walking between their air conditioned cars and air conditioned homes.

    Love your work Tony and hope the message spreads so policy makers and individuals can make accurately informed decisions. The heat wave stuff is obviously catnip for the media and you debunk it effortlessly. I’m curious though, especially since my family lives on the coast in NJ, is the data as truly consistent refuting the consensus that sea levels have risen over the last century and/or could/will likely rise based on ice pack/glacier/etc data over that same period of time? I certainly hope so and if so would be great to see more reports on that to indisputably set that record straight. Again thanks and keep up the great work.

    But CO2 is suppose to trap heat. Why isn’t it getting hotter?

    Once again you ignore Europe and Canada and Alaska and the se ice – again at record lowest for the date

      Once again you ignore history, and you hate poor brown people.

        Bed wetting is frequently accompanied by the inability to focus one’s mind on anything beyond few obsessions.

        Muller, the democrats, and their press confirming your diagnosis for all to see today.

        • Gator says:

          It is amazing to see how incurious the Mueller team was about actual Russian interference with our past election. Mifsud’s ability to avoid all scrutiny is incredible, literally.

    • An Inquirer says:

      Sea Ice measurements were not underway during the time period covered in this post. Sea ice measurement started when sea ice was at a peak following the cool 60s and 70s.

      Yet last week a Norwegian research ice breaker couldn’t reach the “ice-free” North Pole. Another year goes by and the incantations of the Luciferian prophets for an “ice-free” Arctic and a NWP go unfulfilled.

      Climate change, it makes it hot in summer and cold in winter. Holy mucilage Batman!

    • spike55 says:

      Again you are a LIAR and a totally ignorant putz, little grifftroll

      Sea ice is is at a LARGER EXTENT than for about 95% of the last 10,000 years.

      Recovered from an EXTREME anomalous high in the late 1970s, similar to the extents in the LIA.

      Both Arctic and Antarctic sea ice will show insignificant change from the previous decade of more.

      You are not only being WILFULLY IGNORANT, but have now taken to out and out DECEIT and LIES as your only way of posting.
