Heatwave Lies Ramp Up To Category 5

Vox packed an impressive amount of misinformation into two sentences.

Droughts, heat waves, and wildfires are growing more intense and dangerous from global warming and rising greenhouse gas emissions. Meanwhile, we’re not reckoning with scientists’ predictions that worst-case weather scenarios will be more likely — and common — if we don’t change course.

Droughts are becoming  less common and intense as the US gets wetter.

Heatwaves and fires are becoming less common as the US gets wetter.

Arizona hasn’t had a day over 120 degrees since 1995.   Days over 120 degrees used to be quite common in Arizona, but they never happen any more.

The two worst heatwaves were in 1896 and 1905, when Arizona reached 126 and 127 degrees. Both heatwaves had seven consecutive days over 120 degrees.

Phoenix’s worst heatwave occurred in June 1974, when they had eighteen consecutive days over 110 degrees. That was my freshman year at ASU, and was also the peak year of the ice age scare.

The worst tornado outbreak in US history occurred that year.

Nothing that Vox said had any basis in reality. But by using the words “scientists’ predictions” they believe they can get away with any fraudulent claim they want.

    Vox comes up with a fact-free gusher of lies.

    Here in Phoenix we’ve had the mildest summer in my time here (since 1995). Weather here is great. I do all my commuting on motorcycle and walk morning noon and night.

    Maricopa county (Phoenix) is one of the fastest growing counties in America.

    Life in the desert southwest is great and getting better. Vox is pushing ignorant, mindless propaganda.

    I can’t resist:

    As the Wikipedia site claims – Ray did it better.

    Lefties are confident none of their followers will bother searching for the truth. And they are right. At least they are right about something.

      Sad but all too true. Leftists can crow all they want about climate deniers, but denial is proven and known by others, from one’s thoughts and beliefs put into action. Their ignorant religious belief in manipulated data and fraudulent news reporting is the consummate climate denial. Their misappropriated slander of highly educated climate realists is pure projection, squared.

    Not according to NASA.

  5. Logic n reason says:

    I looked up the website of the so called journalist who wrote this crap. There is no reference to his scientific qualifications to be able to write about climate science, in fact he appears to have no background except as an activist. His website has photos that he claims he has taken but they are hardly inspiring. I reckon if Tony engaged him in debate he would be toast in five minutes.
