    Which just goes to show that our impotent politicians do not, in fact, control the weather … that must frustrate the heck out of them.

      It was never about controlling the weather but the issue does allow them to blame their opposition. If it weren’t for us evil deniers they would already be well on the way to controlling the climate they say.

    If these climate clowns want to talk about extreme weather, nothing in recent times can come close to 1936. Of course, we all know that in 1936, evil white males caused the extreme weather by raping the soil with their plows. Every idiot knows that if it had been people of color plowing the soil, the results would have been FAR better.

  4. Are you going to make the program available for us to use, Tony?

    Thanks, Steven aka Tony, for this reminder of the extreme temperatures my parents suffered the year I was born.

    In some ways humanity was better off knowing that they did not know the forces that control Earth’s variable weather. Modern science is plagued with artificial knowledge.

    We are seeing something like that again in the current US data.

  7. sfx2020 says:

    also shows 1936 as 14 days below -20

  8. sfx2020 says:

    The Tmax data for WI definitely shows it was much hotter in the thirties. We see this same thing all over the map.

  9. I’d be willing to bet that the Pacific was cold that year (low moisture = more extreme cold and heat)

    Anyone have a link to the DMI 15% sea ice graph?

    Thank you, Steven, for reminding the public that extreme weather is not necessarily man-made.
