According to NOAA, 2012 was the most extreme year on record in the US. The fraud which goes into making the Climate Extremes Index is breathtaking.
Let’s look at the actual data of 2012 vs. 1936. The summer of 1936 was the hottest on record in the US – nearly 1°C warmer than 2012.
The winter of 1936 was the third coldest on record in the US – more than 4°C colder than winter 2012 – which was very mild.
One hundred degree temperatures occurred more than twice as often in 1936 as they did in 2012 – which wasn’t even in the top ten.
More than 75% of the country reached 100 F in 1936, compared to 55% in 2012 – which wasn’t in the top five.
During 1936, Fort Yates, North Dakota had an incomprehensibly large 169 degree spread in temperatures, from -50F on February 16, to 119F on July 6.
The high plains were twelve degrees above normal temperature in July, 1936
Almost the same story during August, 1936
The heat in 1936 killed thousands of people.
Drought in 1936 was one of the worst on record.
One fourth of the US was flooded during March of 1936, as dust storms ravaged the southwest.
A tornado killed almost 500 people during April 1936. One of the deadliest in US history.
Niagara Falls froze solid in February, 1936
Fires ravaged the west.
1936 was by far the most extreme year in US history, and 2012 wasn’t even in the ballpark. The criminals at NOAA are trying to rewrite history to suit the White House political agenda.
