Quick Quiz For Climate Morons

Death Valley is about to mark the 100th anniversary of the hottest temperature ever recorded on Earth (134F.) It is very hot in Death Valley because :

  1. There is more heat trapping CO2 in Death Valley, because people drink lots of beer there
  2. There is more heat trapping water vapor in Death Valley, because it is very humid there.
  3. Death Valley is a desert with lots of bare rock at  low elevation (below sea level), so the atmospheric pressure and height of the troposphere is high there.
  4. If Death Valley was located at the base of Mt. Everest, it would still be very hot there.
  5. The consensus says that it was hot in 1913 because of SUV CO2.

    I’m going with the beer option…..if only for the sake of being an Aussie beer drinker.

      Andy: what brands of beer do you Aussies like?

      • Baa Humbug says:

        Wet and cold brands

        Hey Gamecock! I think you just hit on what makes Yanks and Aussies so compatable, we have the same values when it comes to what is truly important in life.

        Beer should only be warm when I’m done with it. 😉

      • Andy Oz says:

        Spot on Gator. Aussies and Yanks have that key compatibility characteristic.
        Cold Beer! 😀
        Pommies (those unfortunate English subjects of the Queen) drink warm beer and thus Australia has drifted away culturally from our Commonwealth allies.

        Best local beers in Perth – Little Creatures Pale Ale, Fat Yak and Beez Neez
        though I don’t mind Miller’s Draft (US), Victoria Bitter and if visiting Newcastle, NSW – Toohey’s Old which is an awesome dark ale.

    6. DV is a bowl. No matter which way the wind is blowing, it is under compression as it descends down the slopes. The air becomes warm as the molecules bump into each other. Heat caused by friction.

    7. It is closer to the center of the Earth where it is really really hot.

    6. It was really hot in Death Valley in 1913 only because James Hansen never got around to fixing that particular data point to fit the narrative.
