The Warmth Of 1946

There was a lot of warm weather in 1946, including a stretch from December 1 to December 28, when Harrisburg, Illinois had 14 days above 60F, and no days which didn’t reach the freezing mark.

Cherry trees bloomed record early that year in Washington DC.

And the trees bloomed again in record warmth during November.

March 1946 was fourth warmest in the Washington DC area, after 1921, 1945 and 2012.

Also note that five of the last seven years have had below average March temperatures.

During March 2017, the New York Times used their favorite phrase “scientists say” to misinform the public about this topic.

Spring Came Early. Scientists Say Climate Change Is a Culprit. – The New York Times

And in 2018, the Washington Post used the authoritarian “we expect” for their disinformation campaign.

Spring is running 20 days early. It’s exactly what we expect, but it’s not good. – The Washington Post

I took this picture a month later in Philadelphia on March 22, 2018, during Philadelphia’s coldest and snowiest spring on record..

The Washington Post also predicts cherry blossoms will start blooming in January.

Could cherry blossoms one day be blooming in winter? – The Washington Post

Cherry blossom bloom dates show little or no trend since CO2 hit 350 PPM.

The climate isn’t changing as predicted, but COP25 has begun – so government and the press can ramp the superstition and lies up to record levels.

    With the increase in LED street lighting throughout the US, it is possible cherry trees in many locations may see a slightly earlier blossom date. For the trees surrounding the periodically ice choked Tidal Basin in Washington, DC, some ups and downs on the blossom date; lots of variables. The National Park Service Indicator Tree for Cherry Blossom in Washington, DC, alongside Ohio Dr SW now gets a healthy dose of light pollution from the adjacent 14th St SW bridge. Not to mention the warming effect from the combined ten lanes worth of DC traffic on Ohio Dr and 14th St. The NPS states the indicator tree blooms approximately ten days before the other cherry trees.

    Looks like a typo in the figure title, should be ‘350 ppm’.
