Wisconsin – 30 Degrees Cooler Than 1936

NOAA announced a couple of days ago that summer 2012 is the hottest ever due to CO2.

The forecast high for Prairie Du Chien, Wisconsin tomorrow is 72 degrees.  On August 12, 1936 the temperature was 101 degrees.

  1. Wow, that’s an important data point. It’s changed my entire world view.

    • If you actually understood anything about weather, you would know that heatwaves build on themselves and that there is no chance of 2012 coming anywhere close to 1936 at this point. Additionally, one day of -30 anomaly lowers the monthly temperature by a full degree.

      The concept of using your brain for science or math is apparently foreign to you, though I have no doubt you would make an excellent sheeple.

        Yep, your right the first time that he’s a fake!

        I’m sure I saw that handle used to post here before, something for you to look into Steven. But then again it may be on that other site, so I don’t know what you’d do there!

        If you actually understood anything about weather you would know that heatwaves don’t always ‘build upon themselves’. In my neck of the woods we broke our all time record high twice this summer, and the heat did not ‘build upon itself’. In fact, it was only above 100 for two days before that record was broken, and the entire week before was in the upper 80s to low 90s – which is our average high for that time of year.

        What you are describing was not a heat wave.
        Please keep posting your ignorance.

      • Andy DC says:

        Heatwaves bake out the ground. Baked out ground does not create cooling by evaporation like wet ground does. Thus, until the weather pattern changes, heatwaves build on themselves.

    • I would agree that this is, by itself, more “anecdote” than “data.” But it is part of a larger picture, coupled with the substantial and continuing changes to past data to make things look different now from the way they looked at the time. Rewriting history to suit politics, in other words.

      The current focus on extreme weather events — as being somehow “unusual” or
      “unprecedented” or “more common now than ever” — is being rapidly debunked, even by people nominally on your catastrophist side.

      Incidentally, I am amused that you have taken the moniker of a Kennedy-killer — moreover, one born as a result of an extreme weather pattern … of the 1970s.

  2. So, tell us about Astatula, Florida and then Kooskia, Idaho. Enquiring minds want to know.

    This stuff about the 1930s being hotter is potentially huge. Lets keep gathrring the evidence for the argument. And speaking of Wisconsin and climate change, Paul Ryan as VP is nothing like Chris Christie who kowtowed to the leftists on climate change. He apparently thinks gwarming is complete bull, or nearly so, Here’s the first report I’ve seen about his skeptical position: http://notrickszone.com/2012/08/11/paul-ryan-climatologists-intentionally-mislead-the-public-on-climate-change/
    A comment from P Gosselin at the linked article: I’m beginning to experience Chris Matthew’s “tingle up my leg!” Ryan supercharges the ticket – brilliant choice!
    Ryan makes this election a clear choice between whether we as a country want to be to some degree conservative or full-on leftist, and the people want conservative. This is particularly helpful to Romney at this juncture because Mitt was gaining a reputation as being Mr Mush, an ideological Enoch, and the people would haverejected that, even if it meant reelecting the radical O. Hats off to Ryan! And it’s not about the economy, stupid!

    Well if it’s too cold, don’t just sit there, get out and drive something – preferably ’63 T-Bird or Mustang. Get that CO2 level to up. We need all the additional warming we can get.
    Oh, stop with Obama making the fuel skyrocket we can’t.

    • Yeah, Obama has a little dial in the Oval Office to turn gas prices up and down. He’ll probably starting twisting it back down in mid-October.

      Or maybe he had his secret commie operatives set the fire at Chevron’s Richmond facility.


      • gofer says:

        He’s too busy lowering the oceans.

      • You’ve chosen an interesting sign-off for yourself.

        It is worth noting that President Bush’s announcement (in July, 2008) that he would direct an end to the moratorium on drilling had the effect of turning a dial on gas prices. After hitting $147 per barrel in July (with predictions in the press, now erased, that it could only go higher) oil dropped by much more than half — and gas went form around $4 per gallon to under $2 per gallon where I am in SoCal over the next few months.

        Obama, of course, is taking many actions that act to pressure oil (and gas) prices upward, and this suits his larger purposes as he and his cabinet members have said.

        It just happens that his larger purposes are harmful to the United States, on balance, though very good for certain cronies.

    Just out of curiosity, what would the high temp record be for Prairie Du Chien pre 1940?
