More On The Hot Year Of 1913

The year 1913 brought the hottest temperature ever recorded on Earth, and the longest heatwave on record in the Midwest.

But it wasn’t just summer that was hot.

Basin, Wyoming was 74 degrees on November 11, 1913 (more than 60 degrees warmer than today) and averaged a mind-boggling 70 degrees during the first half of the month.

    Well since the world record for the hottest temperature ever was set in 1913 we’ve had 100 years of clearly out of control warming: looking at the hockey stick graph and you see temperatures over the last century have been shooting virtually into the stratosphere. So in the face of this relentless steep rise in temperatures the world record should have been broken over and over again. Hasn’t happened. That’s because there’s something fishy about their manipulated “data” showing global warming in the 20th century. Look at the US data, which is more reliable. The warming is not there.

  2. And it’s 11 degrees in Basin today and 1 degree in Casper and we’re freezing our buns off. Of course, that’s actually very typical, in spite of all that hype about global warming and news media people who can’t be bothered with research. 🙂

    Interesting piece, though. I may look up some other highs and lows for this state and see where it leads. Thanks.

    SG you will love this one hahah
    he should have mentioned SG as well but anyway….

    we cant trust the surface measurements
    we cant trust the proxies
    we can trust the models

    these so-called scientists have left us in a right mess

    That is pretty hot in 1913, outside manipulating data at GISS, convenient how all the GW people cherry pick data starting in cold years like 70s and ignore dust bowl 1930s, etc., or polar ice last few years like in a time warp The coldest recorded surface temp ever recorded was −128.6 °F (−89.2 °C), at Vostok Antarctica, on July 21, 1983, that is pretty cold.

    Aside, likely much higher unrecorded temps on earth than 134 °F in Death Valley in 1913 – but not too recent, there was once a completely natural nuclear fission reaction which occurred in now Gabon Africa – lasted about 300,000 years, freak natural concentration of uranium isotopes to reach a critical mass and then likely moderated to a degree by ground water – the core of a nuclear reactor can get pretty hot, so theoretically possible Gabon surface temps could have had Death Valley beat by a mile if a thermometer was nearby and reaction was close enough to surface, but could say same about being near any active volcano too ignoring the overall year or two temporary cooling effect from blocking out sun, but a nuclear reaction burning on planet could get a little hot.
