If you want an idea of how dishonest the Capital Weather Gang’s claims are, check out these numbers. Lincoln, Virginia has had 1281 days since 1901 over 95 degrees. 87% of those hot days occurred when CO2 was below 350 ppm CO2. There is no connection between heatwaves in DC and CO2 – and anyone who claims there is, is either an idiot or a liar.
The 1930s saw 268 days over 95F, or an average of twenty-seven days per year.
By contrast, the decade from 2000 to 2009 saw only 43 days over 95 degrees, or an average of four days per year.
The current decade has averaged twelve days per year over 95F.
Very hot days were three to seven times more common during the 1930s, than they have been since the year 2000.
