The US Used To Be Much Hotter

There are 829 US HCN stations which have been continuously active since at least 1920. The vast majority of them set their all-time record maximum prior to 1950. The past decade has had very little record heat.

The EPA also says that heatwaves used to be much worse.

Hansen used to show that the US was much hotter in the past, before he started tampering with the data.

He wrote this in 1999, before he completely turned to the dark side of fraudulent science.

Empirical evidence does not lend much support to the notion that climate is headed precipitately toward more extreme heat and drought. The drought of 1999 covered a smaller area than the 1988 drought, when the Mississippi almost dried up. And 1988 was a temporary inconvenience as compared with repeated droughts during the 1930s “Dust Bowl” that caused an exodus from the prairies, as chronicled in Steinbeck’s Grapes of Wrath…..

in the U.S. there has been little temperature change in the past 50 years, the time of rapidly increasing greenhouse gases — in fact, there was a slight cooling throughout much of the country

    If, as the warming crowd suggests, the planet has warmed by several degrees C, there could never be another cold record set. It would be impossible because the bar has been raised so much. And on the other hand, each year would bring a record number of high temperature records. As your graph suggests, none of that is happening. It can only mean that those who profess their belief in the AGW meme are FOS.
