'The hottest temperature ever recorded was over a century ago in Death Valley, CA. The coldest ever was 2010 in Antarctica. The second coldest was this July. The record high was measured by thermometer and the two lows by satellite. Temperatures are in Fahrenheit. Warming pressure groups will scoff at this inconvenient information. What would they say if the dates were reversed?'
'On July 10, 1913, a temperature of 134 degrees Fahrenheit was recorded in Death Valley, which stands as the hottest air temperature ever recorded on a properly sited and maintained thermometer anywhere in the world,' the National Weather Service reports.
'There are 863 USHCN (U.S. Historical Climatology Network) stations which have been continuously active since at least 1930. The majority of them recorded their all-time record maximum temperature prior to 1940.'
Since 1999, NASA and NOAA have tried to delete the hot 1930′s from the US temperature record, because it doesn't suit their agenda.
'NOAA reported that September was the warmest ever on Earth, even though satellites showed September as being close to the median...NOAA has now passed two degrees of cheating in the US record. The graph below shows the difference between NCDC measured and reported data.'
Study 'finds that US extreme heat waves have decreased over the period from 1930-2010. According to the authors, "Several daily maximum [Extreme Heat Events] near the 1930’s led to 1930-2010 trends of daily maximum [Extreme Heat Events] decreasing" and "Maps indicated negative trends in the interior of the [continental United States] and positive trends in coastal and southern areas. Continental scale increases between 1970 and 2010 were mostly offset by the decreases between 1930 and 1970." In other words, the overall trend of US extreme heat waves was a decrease from the 1930's to the ice age scare of the 1970's, and then a return to levels still shy of those in the 1930's.
Climatologist Dr. Patrick Michaels Mocks Claim: 'The fossil-fuel powered industrial democracies have seen a 100% increase in life expectancy since 1900. Doubling the lifetime of, say, a billion people is equivalent to saving 500 million lives. Our opponents ignore this VERY inconvenient truth.'- Michaels is Director, Center for the Study of Science at the Cato Institute
'Whether you’re talking about tornadoes, wildfires, extreme heat or hurricanes, the good news is that weather-related disasters in the US are all way down this year compared to recent years and, in some cases, down to historically low levels.'
Tornadoes: 'lowest total in several decades'
Number of wildfires: 'On pace to be the lowest it has been in the past ten years'
Extreme Heat: The number of 100 degree days may 'turn out to be the lowest in about 100 years of records'
Hurricanes: 'We are currently in the longest period (8 years) since the Civil War Era without a major hurricane strike in the US (i.e., category 3, 4 or 5)' ( last major hurricane to strike the US was Hurricane Wilma in 2005)
