Huffington Post Math : 129 Is Almost Equal To 135

It reached 134 degrees Fahrenheit at Furnace Creek, Calif. on July 10, 1913 inside the present-day Death Valley National Park.

The 1913 record was nearly broken at the end of June 2013, when a major heat wave scorched the western U.S.  A tentatively recorded temperature of 129 F at Death Valley

    Using HuffingGluePost’s math “logic”, we “nearly break” our high temperature records in FL on an almost daily basis. Hell, using their “logic”, we also “nearly break” our daily LOW temperature records on an almost daily basis. Idjitz.

    40+ years of Progressive Education Regressive Indoctrination has paid off for the Marxists. We’re doomed as a world-class superpower if there’s not a massive course correction in the very near future. Even then, we may have already reached The Tipping Point™ and there can be no saving the free republic.

    last week, it hit (for us) 35.5 C, the record i have recorded is 36 C(ya…cold by Phoenix standards but…)… anyhow, .5C is close…5 F IS NOT…

    That’s why there is no “Huffington Book of World Records”, they couldn’t find a buyer.

    I tried to post a comment.

    It was pending for review.

      Looks like my comment was rejected. Anyway, here’s the essence:

      The information given above on temperatures is misleading.

      I personally know several former consensus scientists (who received big grants to promote false consensus opinions) that are now quietly backing away from scientific deception on realizing that they formerly sold their own family and friends into slavery by promoting falsehoods as scientific facts.

      The basic problem for society is now the same, worldwide:

      Fear of nuclear annihilation in August 1945 (and we came much closer than society knows) convinced world leaders to:

      1. Form the UN on 24 October 1945
      2. Hide knowledge of nuclear energy
      3. Eliminate national constitutions
      4. Eliminate national boundaries
      5. Save themselves by tyrannical control of society in the manner George Orwell predicted in “1984.”

      Orwell’s prediction was fulfilled on schedule, but it remained invisible to the public until Climategate emails were surreptitiously released in late November 2009:

      PS: Another EMP (electro-magnetic pulse) from the Sun’s pulsar core – as happened in the late 1850′s– may be required to knock sense into world leaders and make them admit that they cannot enslave mankind nor control Earth’s climate.

    RE: huffpo – “A tentatively recorded temperature”

    tentative
    1. Not certain or fixed; provisional: “a tentative conclusion”.
    2. Done without confidence; hesitant: “tentative steps”.

    learning is so passe’! Everyone knows that as long as you “feel” it, the facts are irrelevant.

    • BC says:

      Phil, I “feel” like having a beer tonight. The fact that the Warmistas have jumped the Sharknado is irrelevant. Hell, it makes sipping a nice, cold Newcastle Brown Ale that much more satisfying. (Beer has lots of CO2 in it, so I’m doing my part in helping to stave off Global Cooling.) 😉

      BTW, a 6F temperature difference in beer DOES, in fact, make a helluva lot of difference. “Nearly cold” beers suck. “Really cold” beer does not suck. (Unless it’s a suck-filled beer to begin with.)

      • philjourdan says:

        “Nearly cold” beers suck.

        I take it you are not English then? 😉

        • BC says:

          You would be correct. I did, however, spend 5+ years in Athens, Greece and “enjoyed” more than my fair share of “nearly cold” beers. I never could acquire the sincere appreciation for lukewarm alcoholic beverages that my northern European ancestors and brethren possess(ed). Living in the humid, soup-like climate of FL tends to push one’s palate towards beverages that are as close to 0C/32F as possible. 😀

        • philjourdan says:

          While I am spared your climate some of the time (just the tropics of the mid-atlantic during the summer), I am fortunate in that my in-laws live in the desert southwest.

          And COLD Beer is always on the menu. If you have not finished it within the hour, chuck it and get another. 😉

    I have also heard the BBC referring to “near records” in this context, no doubt hoping that anyone not paying real attention might think an actual record was broken.
