The 1930’s were the hottest years on record, until the climate scientists started fiddling the figures. They forgot that news reports have been archived. Some years in the 19th Century were hotter too.

More on Clarinda, Iowa. The blue line is the measured thermometer data. As you can see, the 1930s was very hot there. The red line shows temperatures after USHCN adjustments.
The Dust Bowl is gone, through the magic of government software.
In fact, ‘hottest for years’ was repeated nearly every summer! HOTTEST FOR YEARS

- First, they moved the weather stations from post offices to airports.
- Then they adjusted data downward for the first half of the Century.
- Then they closed some older rural stations where long term records showed little warming.
- Then they adjusted recent weather data upwards.

There is no denying it was hot in some parts of Australia this summer, and may have been extreme, though that is certainly not true for the parts where most Australians live. But whether the nation as a whole experienced record heat depends on how its measured, and as I’ll post tomorrow, the “average” of a whole continent can be measured many different ways with many different data-sets.
Why is the BOM seeking headlines and declaring records, when the data-set and methods are so unfinished they have not been released publicly? (Plenty of errors and flaws and mysterious adjustments have been found in past sets.) Why is the BOM focused on one season, or a few weeks of heat, when it’s only the long term trends that matter (as they remind us whenever it’s cold)? Why won’t the BOM announce how temperatures are averaged and measured before they announce the records?
Why are the BOM seeding the idea that this summer “felt” hot to Australians when it’s not just unscientific, but incorrect?
Why do they focus on one hot day in Moomba, when the records there are so short they would have missed all the previous hot spells? Those previous hot spells broke the Moomba records over and over and a long time ago.
In the end, even if it was a record hot summer, that doesn’t mean CO2 caused any of it. The world has been warming for 300 years. The world has been warmer before. None of that was connected to CO2 levels. Read it all …
- Of course they will find hotter weather when all the above are implemented.
- Bring it on, I say, record crops appear to be the result.
UPDATE: Warwick Hughes has the last laugh: Brisbane tipped to hit 41° on 4 Jan 2014 but reality was 38°
Typical headline beating up what is normal hot weather.
Reality not so glam. for the warmists.
For over a week now I have been puzzled by TV weather ladies talking about 50° here and there at places back of the black stump. Has anybody seen a 50° clock in anywhere yet. I suppose it must happen sometime – after all the BoM adjusted their map scales to go over 50.
