Summers Used To Be Much Hotter In The US

Summers Used To Be Much Hotter In The US

One year ago this week, President Barack Obama waited for a hot day in Washington and hurriedly held an outdoor speech, where he could perspire, engage in third rate acting,  and blame global warming.

The president might be surprised to learn that temperatures are normally hot in the summer. The graph below shows the annual percentage of US June temperatures above 100 degrees through the 21st of the month.
Prior to 1954, 100 degree June days were much more common, and this June has been below the 1895-2014 mean.

For the entire summer, the frequency of 100 degree days has dropped dramatically since the 1930s.

Using Thermometer Data Is Now Considering Data Tampering

I have been accused several times in the last 24 hours of data tampering and cherry picking, because I use the the entire unaltered, measured HCN data set.
Only altered, fabricated data which reverses the measured US cooling trend is considered acceptable by climate alarmists.

NOAA And NASA Data Alterations Are Global

I’ve shown how NASA and NOAA have dramatically altered the US temperature record, and they are doing the same thing in other countries, like Iceland and Australia – almost always cooling the past, which creates the appearance of warming.



NOAA/NASA Dramatically Altered US Temperatures After The Year 2000

Prior to the year 2000, NASA showed US temperatures cooling since the 1930′s, and 1934 much warmer than 1998.

NASA GISS: Science Briefs: Whither U.S. Climate?
NASA’s top climatologist said that the US had been cooling
Whither U.S. Climate?
By James Hansen, Reto Ruedy, Jay Glascoe and Makiko Sato — August 1999
Empirical evidence does not lend much support to the notion that climate is headed precipitately toward more extreme heat and drought.
in the U.S. there has been little temperature change in the past 50 years, the time of rapidly increasing greenhouse gases — in fact, there was a slight cooling throughout much of the country

NOAA and CRU also reported no warming in the US during the century prior to 1989.
February 04, 1989
Last week, scientists from the United States Commerce Department’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said that a study of temperature readings for the contiguous 48 states over the last century showed there had been no significant change in average temperature over that period. Dr. (Phil) Jones said in a telephone interview today that his own results for the 48 states agreed with those findings.
New York Times
Right after the year 2000, NASA and NOAA dramatically altered US climate history, making the past much colder and the present much warmer. The animation below shows how NASA cooled 1934 and warmed 1998, to make 1998 the hottest year in US history instead of 1934. This alteration turned a long term cooling trend since 1930 into a warming trend.

But NASA and NOAA have a little problem. The EPA still shows that heatwaves during the 1930s were by far the worst in US temperature record.

Heat waves in the 1930s remain the most severe heat waves in the U.S. historical record (see Figure 1).

  1. Climate Consultants
    Posted on June 22, 2014 by stevengoddard

    I work as a consultant, and I get paid for delivering what the client wants.

    Climate scientists work as consultants to the government, who pays their contracts. Either they deliver what the government wants, or their funding gets cut off.

    It is not a conspiracy. Rather it is a simple business arrangement. Everyone who works in climate science understands it.

    But their work certainly has nothing to do with either climate or science. They are propagandists on a $29 billion/year budget.

    "Anthony Watts, who exposed the siting problems and showed ridiculous siting, for example, an hour down the road in Lampasas TX they moved the temp monitor
    from a rural location to a parking lot."

  3. William, you are correct, the U.S. weather has been going through a cooling trend however, one of the papers cited in your post clearly shows that the U.S weather trends are counter to global trends for the period.

    1. Your response concerning the tampering of historical data?

    2. William, I am not aware of data tampering. I would be interested in learning more of this.


    I bring this once again. This is a single extended family, paid by no one who have been tracking the weather for over a century just because they want to. It's a hobby passed down through the generations. They have never moved their tracking station, they went out twice a day took their readings and recorded them. William this trumps all your arguments about who's moving what and who's getting paid.

    1. Of course ric you are always correct. One family compared to all of the other data presented. One single family.

      What is your response concerning the tampering of historical data? Care to correct me in regards to that?

    3. Yes William I have heard the story of NOAA and govt agencies using false temperature readings based on models not on facts. I have but one response William :

      They do it as a hobby William, for the fun of it why would these guys falsify anything William? They are not paid, they have never moved the thermometer in 114 years.
      Now William I am not always right in fact none of us are.
      Everything written here on the blog is opinion, opinion is never right or wrong.
      But William give me a good rebuttal to these guys. See you can't so you attack.
      Yes William it is one single family, but probably the one weather monitoring station in America with the most accurate figures to be found. By your own admittance all the others are falsifying shit. These guys aren't and they not only say that in their 114 years of records the climate is warming in NY but it has increased in the last decade or so. But read Mick above climate change is global. We need more honest data from other places since the whole world wide weather system is rigged against your argument that warming isn't happening. 97% of science says it is. William I got to believe that the 3% who say it isn't are also getting paid by someone to say what that someone wants to hear. It's also a business arrangement.

    4. One families data point against historical evidence that has been manipulated.

      Science is not a poll. We do not vote about science.

      Please explain the temperature readings during the mid 1930's ric.

    5. When will you learn, Ric is always right. His word is law like Obama's.

    6. @Louman hey how are you angry old man? hope all is well.

      @William. William no one disputes that the decade of the 1930's was hot. Probably cumulatively the hottest average ten year period since records were kept. That my friend is weather not climate. Climate change takes into account long term trends, yes longer then ten years and William that ten year span is factored into the overall picture. But as hot as it was it seems that 2005 and 2010 are the hottest individual years on record. No one is polling anything William. You say that all historical data has been manipulated. I knew this was coming from you because this has become the new mantra of climate deniers as all other means to deny climate change become either proven false or become obsolete, temperature manipulation. So if all temperature has been manipulated by whomever for the money they get paid to say "Global Warming" ,then why not believe these guys, even if it is only one family, that has no dog in that hunt.
