On April 12, 1934 a world record wind gust of 234 MPH occurred on Mt. Washington, New Hampshire.
“There was no doubt this morning that a super-hurricane, Mt. Washington style, was in full development.” — Log Book entry, Sal Pagliuca
Atmospheric CO2 was at 310 ppm in 1934, well below Hansen’s safe level of 350 ppm.
The following year, 1935, saw the most powerful hurricane to ever hit the US, and to add to the fun – about 80% of the US was experiencing drought at the time. (If that happened now, Joe Romm would demand that Kool Aid be force fed.)
Most US states set their record high temperatures prior to 1940.
Most states had their hottest year prior to 1940.
Obviously the weather was much safer, cooler and wetter when CO2 was below 350 ppm. We need to massively raise taxes to make the climate safe again.
