The EPA says that the 1930′s were much hotter
Afternoon temperatures have been plummeting in the US for 80 years. NOAA/NASA hide this by tampering with the data.
Very hot days were much more common during the 1930′s
Hansen was aware of this in 1999, but seems to have mysteriously forgotten.
Empirical evidence does not lend much support to the notion that climate is headed precipitately toward more extreme heat and drought. The drought of 1999 covered a smaller area than the 1988 drought, when the Mississippi almost dried up. And 1988 was a temporary inconvenience as compared with repeated droughts during the 1930s “Dust Bowl” that caused an exodus from the prairies, as chronicled in Steinbeck’s Grapes of Wrath.
