How Hot Was July, 1934?

The graph below shows USHCN unadjusted temperatures for Manhattan, Kansas. The mean temperature in July, 1934 averaged an astonishing 90.2 degrees. The average high temperature that month was an unbelievable 106.4 degrees!

Wouldn’t it be nice if the climate experts actually learned something about the climate?

    My dad was there! It was HOT!

    If you think 1934 was bad, take a long hard look at 1936! Much hotter much further north. 120 degree heat in North Dakota!

    How Hot Was July, 1934? Should that have read “How hot was Manhattan in 1934?”
    Oops, I forgot Manhattan IS the world! Silly me. Surprise, in comes North Dakota 2 years later, hot too. Now I get it, Manhattan plus North Dakota IS the world. The world IS North America, lest we forget. Good grief, talk about confusing weather and climate.

    Wouldnยดt it be niecer if some comments understood the difference between weather and climate. Between local and regional. Between the afore mentioned and global

      You’re right! This is only one example of extreme weather events that occurred before CO2 went above some magical limit. We’d have to have many more examples before there could be any significance to such articles. See the archives for many more examples. Steven has shown, and continues to show, that extreme climatic events and weather occurrences occurred with an significant frequency before all of the hubbub about CO2. I hope he continues to do so on the daily basis he has been doing. If one is going to blame floods and droughts on CO2 and CC, then one has find a reason for all of these events that Steven is posting about.

      Did I go too fast? Alarmists seem to have a difficulty connecting dots. I’ll break it down in more detail if you require further explanation.

    • Sparks says:

      Man made C02 does Not cause Anthropogenic Global warming, It does not effect the climate or the weather so whats your point?

      • Myself says:

        All CO2 affects the climate. Any gas in the atmosphere will affect the climate. That’s how we get climate, and why our average temps are much warmer than they would be without an atmosphere. Earth, Mars, and Venus prove greenhouse effects are real and exist. Venus for example is MUCH hotter than Mercury because it has a very thick atmosphere.

        Change the content of the atmosphere, and you change climate. So, since man is changing the content of the atmosphere, we are changing climate.

        What isn’t known yet is how much we are changing it and how quickly. However, at this time, the average temps are getting warmer around the globe, and there is currently no known natural mechanism that can explain the current warming trend.

        Any gas in the atmosphere will affect the climate.

        And if the gas is diathermanous?

        Sulfur dioxide oxidizes to the trioxide and combines with water vapor in Venus’s atmosphere to form the clouds there – which is a very, exothermic reaction.

        The Martian atmosphere is about 98% CO2, the partial pressure of CO2 is higher there than on the Earth, diurnal temperatures on Mars approach some 250 K of difference, completely consistent with no greenhouse atmosphere at all.

        Now what.

    Is the Earth currently warming? Signs point to yes. NASA says yes. I’m going to side with NASA on this one:

    I can’t take a closer look at that. You didn’t bother to show your source, and googling his name and ‘coldest month’ doesn’t give me his study. Why didn’t you link to his study in your blog? I can’t tell what data he used, and I’m sure as heck not going to just take your word for it.

    By the way, you can use things besides thermometers on land to determine past global temperatures.

    I love how my posts were censored. Steven Goddard doesn’t want anyone to know that his posts were fully refuted.

    If that is even your real name.

    I hear you got ran out on a rail at WattsUpWithThat. That says a lot.

    • There haven’t been any posts censored. Cut the crap. There is nothing in the spam filter either. You sound like a real asshole.

      • Me says:

        Sounds like that BAL BAL BAL WhinnySelf douchebag err whatever it wants to call It’s Self, needs to take his bird and go finger it’s self! ๐Ÿ˜†

      • Myself says:

        I posted many comments that didn’t show up. I refuted just about everything you posted.
        Funny how you’ll let personal insults and posts without any science through, but you won’t let any through which show you to be dead wrong.

        I do find it interesting that WUWT (a conservative denialist website) even thought you were being too dishonest.

      • Me says:

        Me mistake that should be BAWL BAWL BAWL! And A WHAAAA!

      • Myself says:

        I reposted my rebuttals as best as I can remember.

        Care to address the part where you claim a graph shows one thing and in reality you just selected particular data points to side with your claim instead of looking at an honest set of data with enough data points to make a conclusion – or while ignoring the actual consensus about what the data means?

    • Brian G Valentine says:

      Did your mom refer to you as “Myself”? Or did you give her a headache by constantly referring to yourself that way?

      • Me says:

        ๐Ÿ˜† Nice, sounds like that Asshole was asking fer it!

      • Myself says:

        I ask for nothing. I saw dishonesty in this blog and pointed it out. Now either stick to the science or facts, or continue to look childish. At least when people google my name they won’t find childish remarks like yours.

        Any facts to post? Any citations?

      • Myself says:

        No. You offered data but no consensus. You don’t know how to interpret the data, and then you want me to accept your interpretation of the data instead of an actual climate scientist who knows what the data means.

        That’s dishonest.

      • Me says:

        consensus? BWAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA, is that like the Pal review thinggy?

      • Me says:

        Hey Youself, how’d that work out fer ya? BWAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHA! How do ya like Me now? ๐Ÿ˜†

      • Me says:

        Hey youself when can Me, expect to see one of you jackasses to post here as EYE or I soon? BWAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Probably not, now you morons. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Me says:

        But it wouldn’t surprise Me if ya still did! ๐Ÿ˜†
