We Haven’t Always Had Such A Nice Climate

This March has been the quietest on record for extreme weather in the US. But on this date in both 1913 and 1932, hundreds of Americans died in tornadoes, with entire towns wiped out.

    Here is background information on the international alliance promoting the AGW fable:

    10 years later, 160 consecutive days were recorded over 100°F (37.8°C), or above, in Australia. A record that hasn’t even been close to being broken in 90+ years….even with CO2 driven AGW, Climate Change, Climate Disruption, Weather…..or whatever it’s called this week.

    I have said it before, and I’ll say it again.

    The climate has actually been quite benign over the last 50 or so years.

    Reduced extreme events, reduced hurricanes.

    Just the normal ups and downs in the weather.

    Maybe been there has been a tiny amount of beneficial real warming to go with the small rise in beneficial CO2, but most of the temperature data is now so trashed we will never know for sure.

    From “Whitaker’s Almanack” of 1897, Storms and floods on 1895-96:

    On January 6th. (1896) a storm swept the Atlantic coast of the United States, causing inland floods, numerous casualties and considerable loss of life.

    On May 15th a terrific tornado struck Sherman, in Texas, destroyed an iron bridge, lifted houses bodily from their foundations, uprooted tall trees, and killed about 150 people. About the same time a water-spout burst over Howe, Texas, when 8 people were killed and many injured.
    On the 27th, a tornado devastated St. Louis, in Missouri.
