What An Actual Climate Crisis Looks like

On this date 85 years ago, temperatures in the Chicago area were well over 100 degrees, there was a worldwide drought and farmers were unable to survive the heat, drought and insect plagues.

Prior to 1960, August 9th was much hotter in the Midwest. The 1930’s were typically ten to twenty degrees warmer than recent years,

Eighty percent of the US was in drought.

The Arctic was melting and was going to drown England.

The drought was global and there was freak weather around the world.

If NASA and NOAA climate scientists were actual scientists – they would want to understand the heat of 1934 – rather than trying to erase it and lie to the public about a non-existent “climate crisis.”

There Is nothing new about scientists tampering with climate data for political purposes – and it has always been up independent journalists to set the record straight.

    Don’t forget this one you have flagged up before-

    imaginary changes of climate-

    “We have often noticed that in the
    tabular statements of those compilers of weather
    records who write to the Times, useful and
    welcome as their communications are, every
    season is sure to be “extraordinary,” almost
    every month one of the driest or wettest, or
    windiest, coldest 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. And many
    seem now to regard three dry hot years in
    succession as betokening some general change
    of climate, as if it was not perfectly certain, in
    the wide range of the table of what we call
    chances, that with our existing condi-
    tions of climate such a combination must
    every now and then recur”

    I appreciate your research that opens up a window on past times, very useful, thanks.

    I know that current temperatures are not immediately available, but even a week-delayed side-by-side comparison of the daily temperature heat maps for 1934 and 2019 would be very helpful. How different do the maps look?

    Interesting to see the mention of repeal of the Volstead Act for stimulating agriculture. Without The Great Depression, prohibition may not have been repealed for another generation or two. It never ceases to amaze me how little most people know about this very important chapter in our history. The Temperance movement was one of the earliest agendas of the Progressives (mid 19th century in origins), and they used children and fake news to push it through. It them took 60-70 years of attributing virtually all of society’s ills to alcohol, and they got it done. It should serve as a stark warning for all of us.

    Imagine Griff would have lived in one of those times where climate catastrophies did happen in the real world and not just in the headlines of newspapers and in climate models.

    Griff would not give a crap(as long as not being personally affected)
    as noone would have told him to give.

    PS
    not a million climate scientists would have prevented a crisis like in the mid 30ies
    nor will a billion prevent those of the future carastrophies which will happen for sure as they always did.And as always they”d have nothing to do with co2.

    And this is why i do not understand why climate scientists exist at all.

    • Gator says:

      Imagine? Nah, no need! Ms Griff would never have survived what out ancestors called weather. If I had a time machine, the likes of Ms Griff would get free rides.

    Yet another excellent piece!

    It’s dry here at my place in central Indiana now but the effects of the record wet Spring we had and the greening due to the necessary CO2 are very evident. Friday after driving in from Vandalia, OH I spent 8 hours with my neighbors trimming the low hanging branches of our trees. We had both of our 8′ diameter fire rings going and the ash in my 12″ high steel ring is now piled up higher than the steel in the middle. It was a day of hard, sweaty, grimy work but now the cooling breeze can come through and I can see what’s coming down the road when I back the big truck out of my driveway. We have several bat houses we made to put up in the trees now that we have the growth out of the way. Today I finally get a chance to finish the floor of the composite deck we started on the first week of January. It will take all day to get that done I suspect.
