CNN ^ | 7:35 AM EDT, Tue July 10, 2012 | CNN Wire Staff

Posted on 07/10/2012 5:53:14 PM PDT by Ernest_at_the_Beach

(CNN) -- The mainland United States, which was largely recovering Monday from a near-nationwide heat wave, has experienced the warmest 12 months since record-keeping began in 1895, a top government science and weather agency announced Monday.

The report from the National Climatic Data Center, which is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, does not take into account blistering heat from this month, with 2,116 high temperature marks either broken or tied between July 2 and July 8 in communities nationwide.

How hot was it?

It was so hot...It was so hot that Algore was able to throw away his Viagra.

I love in bullhead City, AZ. Though to be the hottest point in the US. Today, it was about 130 degrees. it’s been horrible. At Davis Camp, about 1/2 mile from whe I live away the electronic thermometer said 140 degrees. I don’t think it was broke.

“experienced the warmest 12 months since record-keeping began in 1895”

There lies in the truth. The record keeping began in 1895, so the it has only been just a bit more than 100 years! What happened before that? The world was much hotter 13.7 billion years ago. In fact, it was so hot that all 4 fundamental forces were fused into 1! Now, that was hot! This so called heat wave is nothing compared to that! Back then no SUVs to cause the Plank Epoch either!

excerpt:

The study, recently published by the free-market Heartland Institute, inspected 860 of the 1,221 U.S. ground stations that gauge temperature changes. The findings, previously reported in this column, were alarming.

They found 89 percent of stations “fail to meet the National Weather Service’s own siting requirements” that say stations must be located at least 100 feet from artificial heat sources.

“We found stations located next to the exhaust fans of air conditioning units, surrounded by asphalt parking lots and roads, on blistering hot rooftops and near sidewalks and buildings that absorb and radiate heat,” Watts reported.

I used to run the Colorado River (Lee's Ferry to Temple Bar) back in the 60s. I know how hot it can get down there. However, 120 was the highest I ever saw. The thermometer broke. Don't know whether the heat caused it to break but it was hot.

My liberal sister lives in Bullhead. She turned out to be the only liberal in the family. She spent too much time in school getting a Master's degree.

It's a spinoff from all the people (who came here to work in the oil patch despite a serious housing shortage) who lived in thin walled campers up here in Western ND last winter, praying it wouldn't hit 30 below and stay there.

It worked, apparently, it was the mildest of my 33 winters up here. (8^D)

1830/1 : (ILLINOIS) "Winter of the Deep Snow"-- Transcribed and submitted by Darrel Dexter 
         We often hear the old settlers refer to "the winter of the deep snow."  Fifty years ago Illinois citizens were wont to refer to events as having happened before or after "the winter of the deep snow."  This great weather drama occurred during the winter of 1830-31.  On Christmas Eve, 1830, it began snowing, the storm coming from the northwest, and it kept on snowing.  Later the weather grew bitterly cold and the wind became a veritable hurricane.  The snow began piling high in drifts or was sifted deep over the prairies, as far as the eye could see.           
  For days and days this condition continued.  Rail fences entirely disappeared and the snow reached the lower branches of the trees.  Domestic animals and game were first to suffer, for all vegetation was buried deep and the steams were locked in ice and filled from bank to bank with great drifts of snow.  The animals had neither food, water, nor shelter.  Thousands of domestic and wild animals perished.  Settlers' cabins were lost in the terrifying expanse of snow.  Day after day for weeks the mercury registered 10 degrees below zero or lower.  Hunters caught away from home reached their homes with difficulty or perished on the prairies or in the forests.
Many of the bodies of those perishing were not found until spring had melted away their snow graves.  For sixty days there was an almost unbroken succession of sunless days.  In the central part of the state the average depth of the snow was three or four feet.  On top was a thick, hard crust which bore the weight of the heaviest man.  Wild game in Illinois decreased rapidly as a result of the big snow.  Unable to run because their small feet sank where men were borne up, thousands of deer were slaughtered for food, others wantonly.
Much game perished of exposure and starvation, and for years afterwards their bones lay upon the prairies whitening in the sun.  Thousands of wolves perished, and when the snow disappeared they were skinned by the settlers and their skins made into robes and fur coats.  --Hillsboro News

1854 : (JONESBORO, ILLINOIS : GREAT DROUGHT )
REMEMBERS THE DROUGHT OF 1854
J. F. Phillips of this city remembers the drouth of 1854, although at the time he was only a chunk of a boy.  According to very old timers the drouth of 1854 was comparable to this one of 1930 in duration and severity, but possibly not so widespread.  Mr. Phillips' folks were then living in Franklin County, Mo., and there according to his recollection the drouth began in April and there was no rain until sometime in the following September. 
In February of the following year the family moved to Franklin county, Ill., and Mr. Phillips was old enough before the Civil War was brought to a close the enlist in the 15th Illinois Cavalry.  He is not as spry as he was then, but is able to be on the streets almost every day and still finds interest in life.
(Jonesboro Gazette, Jonesboro, Illinois, Friday, 5 Sep 1930; transcribed and submitted by Darrel Dexter)

Imagine that... variable weather before SUVs and Industrial age!

They are gonna have a big problem pushing this warmest ever garbage. The Summer Olympics begin in London soon and they are forecasting that summer is already over there in England. The lies of the US Government Agencies and their MSM Toadies are gonna run straight into a Summer Olympics with no summer. Gonna be hilarious.

FYI - The UK just had its coldest June since 1991.

I was Bullhead City a decade ago when it was 125, but Death Valley, California holds the record for the hottest "offical" high temp in North America at 136 degrees. It was a balmy 122 at Furnace Creek in Death Valley today (I live nearby).

As you know, its just local weather. While the East Coast (where most of the media live) was having a scorching heat wave, here it in the desert of California, it was 89 on the Fourth of July. Now the media are all screaming about “Climate Change” after the heat wave. What morons. It was 105 here today, normal for this time of year.

Record keeping in the US began around 1886 or 1888, the year my grandfather was born. That's only about 125 years ago, give or take, and before that there was Poor Richard's Almanack, whose guesses were most times more accurate than those of the today's weather services.....and more honest as well.

It's hot in the east accompanied by violent storms, there's drought in the west accompanied by raging fires and conflicting reports on the news about the ice caps and CO2 levels in the atmosphere. The weather is something everyone has had to deal with throughout the millenia not just over the past 125 years where it receives prime time on tv and radio, whose morning reports can be forgotten by afternoon and in print whose reports when inaccurate are never retracted.

Suppose we could all do what the 576 folks in Foggy Bottom do in summer time.....vacation or campaign in their districts a redress to the inclement summer time weather. Or maybe the chilling at the All Star game representing their favorite team's players, sitting in box seats with a/c.

Send me a wooly bear, Ernest so I can figure the weather later this year and I'll e-mail you the arrival of the first plovers here so you can forecast yours.

So what the hell is the L/MSM going to do in say ten years or so if some current analysis comes true in predicting a gradual switch to cold temperatures for every season throughout North America as well as perhaps the rest of the world. The goofs will probably still harp the thoughts of the UN and the willing contributors of AGW to manage words to prove the earth is cooling due to global warming and climate change caused by humans. The $$$holes should be lined up and then horse whipped for starters.

Aren’t these the guys who, under the leadership of Hansen, have been caught adjusting older temperatures down and more recent temperature up to make the slight temperature rise since 1885 look much more dramatic? The most recent big story is that a 2000 year temperature reconstruction has found that both the Roman and Medieval Warm periods had actually been much warmer than believed making the past two millennia an overall period of cooling. We’re at the low end. The hottest years in the last century have been, in order, 1921, 1934, and 1933. Des Moines, for instance, during 1933 had 31 days of 100+ temperatures, two of them in May, most of them well above 100, up to 112. Before this year, there was a single day that made 100 in Des Moines in the previous 9 years. Interestingly, for the month of June, the average temperature for the U.S. stayed about even with the previous year. It was just that there were some parts in the middle that were unusually hot while parts of the east and west coasts were unusually cold. I believe that 25 states had record low temperatures for the month of June.

Quite the opposite in Alaska, had a record snowfall last winter, and now the coldest summer is about to be a record. I had two days of over 70 degree days so far. Barely got over 60 in the last couple of weeks here. This is Wasilla, AK.
