This Date In 1917 – 128 Degrees At Ojai, California

Ojai is just inland from Santa Barbara and is one of my favorite towns in California. On this date in 1917 the reported temperature was 128 degrees, and the town burned up. Today is 57 degrees cooler than 1917.

The hottest June 16 across the US occurred a year later in 1918, and the second hottest occurred in 1913

A few weeks later in 1913, California set the world record temperature of 134 degrees.


And a few weeks earlier was some of the worst flooding, tornadoes and fires in US history.

    Ahh the good old days before CO2 was over 350 parts per million.

    Your news stories make the case for ceasing fossil fuel use even more urgent.

    According to some experts, anonymous but unimpeachable sources report that some climate scientists in a high state of intoxication, while viewing Star Trek videos that mentioned tachyons, came up with the brilliant (ask them, they’ll tell you) idea that larger levels of CO2 might elevate tachyon levels. These opens time portals, whereby the higher CO2 levels in the present can affect weather conditions in the past. This is called Retroactively Increased Greenhouse Gain of Energy Denominators (RIGGED). In fact, some models predict that the simple act of predicting higher CO2 levels with other models can explain the heat waves and weather anomalies you report here with great precision.

    The “post-dictive” calculations of these models must certainly be correct, because they’re so advanced that like other climate conclusions, no one can explain them. Greta will have presented her paper on this at the last IPCC.

    So the fact that temperatures are falling as CO2 is rising proves, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that increasing CO2 right now causes global warming in the 20’s. You can’t deny science.
