The climate criminals at the White House claim that recent Midwest heatwaves (i.e. 2012) were longer and more intense than earlier heatwaves.
the country had their highest number of short-duration heat waves in the 1930s, when the multi-year severe drought of the Dust Bowl period, combined with deleterious land-use practices, contributed to the intense summer heat through depletion of soil moisture and reduction of the moderating effects of evaporation. However, the recent prolonged (multi-month) extreme heat has been unprecedented since the start of reliable instrumental records in 1895.The recent heat waves and droughts in Texas (2011) and the Midwest (2012) set records for highest monthly average temperatures, exceeding in some cases records set in the 1930s
This level of fraud by the White House is spectacular – even for Barack Obama. The frequency of hot days in the Midwest has plummeted to near record lows in recent years.
The duration of Midwest heatwaves has also plummeted to near record lows
In order to visualize the depth of the White House depravity, let’s test their record Midwest heatwave of 2012 at one station in Missouri. During 1919, Caruthersville, MO had 77 consecutive days over 90 degrees. It was hotter almost every day in summer 1919 than 2012, and the summer averaged 8°F hotter in 1919.
By every metric, heatwaves have become much less common and much less intense in the US and the Midwest. Even the EPA knows that the Obama White House is lying.
President Obama has an agenda to make electricity prices skyrocket in the US, and no fraud is too big towards that end.
