Government climate experts say that the US is getting much hotter, but the exact opposite is true. Both the number of hot days and the areal extent of heatwaves in the US is plummeting.
In 1936 nearly 80% of US stations reached 100 degrees, but the the past three years have been closer to 30%. A massive decline.
The frequency 100 degree days has plummeted from 5% in 1936 to about 1% in recent years.
The frequency of 90 degree days has also plummeted from 15% in 1936, down to 9% in 2015.
Most of the time when you hear a climate statistic from a government expert, it is pretty safe to assume that the exact opposite is true,
