Heatwave Of May-June, 1934

The US had an unprecedented heatwave during May and June, 1934. Temperatures in the Midwest and Upper Great Plains were over 100 degrees every day from May 26 through June 8, and peaked at 111 degrees on May 30.  Temperatures were about 30 degrees warmer than today’s forecast.

The heatwave actually began on May 8, and continued all summer.

Temperatures during May were twelve degrees above normal in the center of the US.


The US experienced an unprecedented drought that summer.

The heat and drought wasn’t confined to the US.  The entire planet was experiencing unprecedented extreme weather.

Climate scientists can’t explain the extreme weather of 1934, and it wrecks their theory – so they simply erase it.

    I have never read nor heard of a plausible cause for the global extreme weather of 1934.
    The speculations of most researchers come up quite short. Does anyone here know of a plausible cause?

  3. Mike Fahey says:

    Why don’t we get these perspectives from “real” climate scientists? We could all breath easier, with less anxiety of the sea swallowing us up (to the tune of 40 to 50 feet).

    Actually, the (historic) comments in this post by Tony, sound a lot like Al Gore’s after 2000 and in his science fiction classic, ‘An Inconvenient Truth’. Maybe they come from a distant (hysterical) relative of Al.

    I checked the link to the 1999 NASA pdf you cited: https://pubs.giss.nasa.gov/docs/1999/1999_Hansen_ha03200f.pdf

    The graph you have put up isn’t in the cited pdf. However all the graphs look similar to the 2017 graph you show.
