The Huntsville Times (Huntsville, Alabama) – 21 Jul 1936,

“Record Heat

There has been no heat wave in the history of this country that has been comparable, in the number of fatalities, to that which has burned and blistered more than a scores of states since July 1.

Yesterday, the number of those who has perished as a result of it passed the 4,500 mark.

Some of these include drownings.  But the very large majority of the deaths were due directly to    the insufferable heat, mostly in a period of 15 days, when temperatures of 110 and more were very common.”

    AND still to this day more die in winter cold than in heat WORLD Wide

  2. Richard says:

    Cold restricts blood flow to keep our core warm, increasing blood pressure and killing through strokes, heart attacks and respiratory diseases.
    Those deaths are rarely reported, because they don’t fit the current climate narrative. Of course, if they were just a curiosity, the indifference might be justified, but they are anything but. Each year, more than 100,000 people die from cold in the United States, and 13,000 in Canada — more than 40 cold deaths for every heat death.

    Oregon heat wave victims older, lived alone, had no AC

    The same pattern holds, including in countries not typically associated with frigid winters. In India, cold deaths outnumber heat deaths 7 to 1. Globally, 1.7 million people die of cold each year, dwarfing heat deaths (300,000).

    I WONDER how many are going to die in UK and EU with their shortage of power this winter

    But 95.6°F on July 6, 2022, which has been our highest here in SC KY is nothing compared to 106°F ambient.
    BUT add the humidity, 89.70%, well I just say…YUCCCCHHHH!
    It is the Humidity that kills ya…well it’s very ‘uncomfortable’ to say the least.
    I will laff when these AGW freaks are thrust into very bad and/or dangerous conditions. A long term blackout of electricity will show them [probably not but] how good life is with Oil, Coal and Electric appliances that make Life easy.Us…we have a generator, an old wringer washer, clothesline known as a ‘Solar Drier’ and animals for food and wood to cook those animals…Bambi over a Hickory fire (SMOKY!) is Heaven!!! Oh Bambi shot with one of those ‘dastardly’ ASSAULT WEAPONS [Russian version!]!
