The climate mafia now simply lies about everything.
Labor Day weekend usually means that the U.S. is done with heat waves for the summer. But not this year.
Southern California hit well over 100 degrees Wednesday, putting it easily on its way to a heat wave — which technically means three consecutive days of 90 degrees or more. Citing expected temperatures of 102 to 108 degrees, the National Weather Service put out an “Excessive Heat Warning” Wednesday.
Utter BS. The warmest months of the year on the California coast are almost always September and October. Everyone in California knows that.
Boston, MA had its first September heat wave in 30 years on Tuesday. Attleboro, MA students returned to school with unseasonably high temperatures, as Tuesday’s high of 96 degrees broke a record for the hottest September day ever measured. Facilities unused to such temperatures during the school year made it difficult for officials keep children from overheating — buildings were only climate-controlled enough to allow students to spend half the day in air-conditioned areas. Nearby Providence, Rhode Island saw its first all-September heat wave in 32 years on Wednesday. Westover, MA hit a record high of 92, and had its first heat wave of the year.
Flagrant lies. Attleboro was 98 degrees in September, 1953.
Almost every September heat record in Massachusetts was set in 1953 or 1969.
Observational data and climate records make clear that heat waves have already increased in duration and intensity. Climate models have shown that heat waves are “virtually certain” to get worse as greenhouse gases warm the planet.
The exact opposite is true. Heatwaves have become much less common in the US, and their duration has become much shorter.
The EPA shows that heatwaves used to be much worse.
The GHCN temperature record shows that heatwaves used to be much worse in the US.
Heatwaves in Europe haven’t changed at all.
During September, 1925 Harrisburg, Illinois had nine consecutive days over 100 degrees, including five days over 105 degrees.
Illinois hasn’t had any 100 degree days in any month for the past two years.
Climate criminals are simply making up statistics which are the exact opposite of reality. Heatwaves are becoming much less common and much less intense in the US, as CO2 continues to rise. There is no correlation.
