Frequency Of US 90 Degree Days Plummeting – Second Fewest On Record

The frequency of 90 degree days in the US is plummeting, and this year has had the second fewest on record. The only year with fewer 90 degree readings in the US was 1992, which was cooled by the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo. The three coolest summers all occurred above 350 PPM CO2

    This is great, but will never get CAGW alarmists to give up there religious belief that CO2 is causing global warming/climate change.
    I’m guessing that it will take the collapse of Obama’s and Kerry’s claims to get some of the MSM to expose their fraudulent claims . [otherwise time]

    • Gail Combs says:

      You have the cause and effect backwards. The MSM MADE Obummer and Kerry. (Do you really think such idiots would have gotten anywhere on their own?)

      So scratch the surface and look at who controls the MSM link (see first comment)

    • geran says:

      You’re right Al. I don’t expect the alarmists to come forward to admit they were wrong. I don’t even think the “Luke-Warmists” will do that. These folks got so wrapped up in the emotionalism, they can no longer reason. Their “argument” is reduced to babbling.

    A definite downtrend since the 1930’s. Global warming has been so ridiculously overblown that it is scary. The US Government is trying desperately to promote a scam that, if unchecked, would destroy the economy and our entire way of life. If the sheeple knew the truth, the Democrats would be out of power for a long, long time.

    • Gail Combs says:

      It is worse than that.

      If certain scientists are correct we are looking at a return to Little Ice Age conditions. If others are correct, it could be worse – the end of the Holocene.

      The US government is well aware of both of those possibilities and the problems associated with even the minor dip in temperature in 1969/1970. See the 1974 CIA Report

      We have the technology to prevent millions of deaths. Nuclear power plants to provide energy, desalinization plants to provide water, (Colder is normally drier.) and various intense agricultural methods. Yet the US government instead of doing what is right for the country moved to abolish the US strategic grain reserve leaving not only the USA but the entire world vulnerable to a really bad growing season. (Think of one of Iceland’s big volcanoes exploding into the stratosphere.)

      The fact is that the US government (and the UN) is WILLFULLY and with MALICE ignoring the real science in favor of politically advantageous propaganda. They are listening to the financial traders and international corporations that could care less if some of the ‘Great Unwashed’ (their term) die.

      The complete disregard for human life, if it means more $$$$ is quite obvious in the 2008 food shortage resulting in riots in 60 countries.

      In summary, we have record low grain inventories globally as we move into a new crop year. We have demand growing strongly. Which means that going forward even small crop failures are going to drive grain prices to record levels. As an investor, we continue to find these long term trends..very attractive.

      After the 2008 food crisis this letter was written by the international grain traders:

      Recently there have been increased calls for the development of a U.S. or international grain reserve to provide priority access to food supplies for Humanitarian needs. The National Grain and Feed Association (NGFA) and the North American Export Grain Association (NAEGA) strongly advise against this concept..Stock reserves have a documented depressing effect on prices… and resulted in less aggressive market bidding for the grains.

      Council on Foreign Relations: How Goldman Sachs Created the Food Crisis

      Demand and supply certainly matter. But there’s another reason why food across the world has become so expensive: Wall Street greed.

      It took the brilliant minds of Goldman Sachs to realize the simple truth that nothing is more valuable than our daily bread. And where there’s value, there’s money to be made. In 1991, Goldman bankers, led by their prescient president Gary Cohn, came up with a new kind of investment product, a derivative that tracked 24 raw materials, from precious metals and energy to coffee, cocoa, cattle, corn, hogs, soy, and wheat. They weighted the investment value of each element, blended and commingled the parts into sums, then reduced what had been a complicated collection of real things into a mathematical formula that could be expressed as a single manifestation, to be known henceforth as the Goldman Sachs Commodity Index (GSCI).

      For just under a decade, the GSCI remained a relatively static investment vehicle…

      Then, in 1999, the Commodities Futures Trading Commission deregulated futures markets. All of a sudden, bankers could take as large a position in grains as they liked, an opportunity that had, since the Great Depression, only been available to those who actually had something to do with the production of our food….

      August here is 1/2 the 90F days versus average. Sept. is starting with three in a row forecast then back to the 80s. My softball league canceled opening day due to cold and now it looks like the Fall league may end early, but that remains to be seen. The leaves are now beginning to turn a full month early and the ground bees and Yellow Jackets have broken the nests early. They know something.

    This after a winter that killed the well established English Ivy that had been creeping up the side of my largest Chinese elm. And that stuff is damned hardy.

    This graph represents trends in US Weather patterns not Climate. It is very well documented that some places on the planet will experience colder than normal temperatures as a result of climate change while other regions will experience warmer than normal. Same is true for wet and dry conditions. The key word is CHANGE. It is why the terminology of global warming was dropped because it confused the public. Climate change is a more accurate description of what is happening as a result of rising CO2 levels in the atmosphere. This graph fully supports the basic premise that global changes in climate are disrupting normal weather patterns on the local level. So thanks Steve for your support for this important phenomenon!
