NPR told us today that the summer of 2012 was a record breaker in the US. The only thing which broke any records was the level of BS coming from the ministry of truth..
An apples to apples comparison, shows that the summer of 1936 had five times as many record maximums as the summer of 2012.
Summertime average temperatures didn’t even crack the top five.
Summertime maximum temperatures barely cracked the top ten, and were 2.5 degrees cooler than 1936.
