The average maximum temperature in the US during 1921 was second highest on record after 1934.

It wasn’t due so much to extreme heat like the 1930’s, but more to persistent heat.

It was the hottest year on record in Texas.

Reality doesn’t suit the political agenda of NOAA, so they have completely erased the past heat in Texas and turned sharp cooling into sharp warming.

    Prof. Gregory of Yale university stated that another world ice epoch is due.
    He was the american representative to the Pan Pacific science congress and North America would disappear as far south as the great lakes and huge parts of Asia and Europe would be wiped out”
