Crosbyton, Texas is the closest USHCN station to Lubbock, TX – where Canadian Katherine Hayhoe moved 10 years ago and declared herself the local climate expert.
One month ago, she warned Texas cattlemen about drought and desertification due to global warming
Now she is blaming the rain on global warming.
This is what Lubbock looks like today.
January to May rainfall is about the same as it was seventy years ago
The number of days with rain is about the same as the 1960s
The heaviest rainfall events haven’t changed recently, but were slightly larger a century ago.
Snowfall is about the same as 100 years ago.
The number of 100 degree days peaked in the 1930’s. There was one very hot summer in 2011, but it was an outlier.
There was a spike in temperatures about 10 years ago back up to 1920’s levels, but it has disappeared.
Katherine Hayhoe bases on her claims on superstition and faith, not data. There is no indication of long term climate change in Lubbock.
