We’ve debunked such claims countless times, but here we go again. The latest claim from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is that that last month’s average global temperature was 61.2 degrees, which is 1.3 degrees higher than the 20th century average. They also claim it beat 2010’s old record by one-twentieth of a degree. The same report indicates the U.S. is also experiencing the hottest weather ever.
But here’s an undeniable, inconvenient fact: the 1930s brought the U.S. it’s hottest temperatures on record—period.
As I explain in my bestseller, Climategate, in the Thirties, twenty-two of our now 50 states recording their highest temperature ever, with the hottest year on record being 1934.
Examples include 1100 in Millsboro, Delaware on July 21, 1930; 118 0 at Keokuk, Iowa on July 20, 1942; and Steele, North Dakota reaching 1210 on July 6, 1936.
By the way, thirty-eight states recorded their all-time highs before 1960.
The U.S. has maintained the most complete, widespread, long-standing, uninterrupted set of temperature records on the planet and these records should not be taken lightly. If we were to only look at the temperature records from those same measuring stations that were used in the 1930s we would discover that there was nothing unusually hot about 2012. In fact, one would notice a net cooling since the Thirties!
The problem is the temperature record has been rigged to read warm. The leftist masterminds charged with taking the earth’s temperature are using significantly less data—or even estimating data—from cold places like Canada and Siberia. They’re also relying on more temperatures from thermometers placed in highly urbanized (artificially warmer) locations, with most of these thermometers having been placed since the late 1980s! Overall, global temperatures are being skewed upward. That’s exactly what NOAA did again this year.
As an aside, if NOAA relied solely on their satellite data, which accurately covers the entire planet, they would have to report that 2013’s temperatures are not unique.
One more fact: even iconic global warmist Phil Jones, head of the defamed UK Climate Research Unit, has admitted there has been no statistically significant warming since 1995.
The bottom line is our global temperature databases have been deliberately manipulated, and the people crunching the numbers so tilted politically to the left, that climate trends and annual rankings can no longer be presumed accurate.
NOAA’s report is wide ranging and as usual my buddy Marc Morano has some excellent ammunition that blows NOAA’s claims sky high.
