July 10, 1913 – 134 Degrees In California

On this date in 1913, Greenland Ranch, California reached 134 degrees – the hottest temperature ever recorded.

mwr-050-01-0010.pdf

Unlike the vast majority of the thermometers used by Steven Mosher and Berkeley Earth to generate their fake global temperature graph, this measurement was taken using very high-quality equipment and standard methodology.

Almost all of California was over 100 degrees that day. Zion National Park in Utah was 108 degrees. Yosemite National Park, much of which is currently buried in snow, was 100 degrees.

Greenhouse gases had extremely low concentrations at that location. CO2 was only 300 PPM, and the most important greenhouse gas, H2O, was also at very low concentrations on that date.

Climatologists claim that hot weather is associated with high levels of greenhouse gases, but there is zero evidence to back up this wildly fraudulent claim.

    Pay close attention Al Gore,David Suzuki,Leonardo DiCaprio,Barack Obama,Greenpeace this happened long before you were born long before the SUV and long before household air condioners(You listening to me John Kerry?)and long before the Useless Nations

      ..but vegitation absorbs MORE heat on Earth.

    Lover of all history, but living through 110+ in LA SFV for past several days makes me mildly sympathetic to our forbears of 1913 when the power went out this weekend. Sure it only got to 106 that day but once you’re in the oven it makes little difference as the mercury rises when all you can do is sweat and wait for DWP to restore the power substation.

    Local Hot Temperatures are LOCAL….they do NOT disprove Global Warming Science !
    ( Humans are NOW emitting more than 135 TIMES as much CO2 as ALL of the volcanoes on EARTH,
    each & every year,
    COMBINED ! )
    .
    (The Unique Isotopic Signature proves that this CO2 INCREASE is from Human Activities & the Burning of Fossil Fuels)
    We are surpassing 411PPM from the 1800’s 265-285’s PPM.
    .
    CO2 traps heat
    .
    According to radiative physics & decades of laboratory measurements, increased CO2 in the atmosphere is expected to absorb more infrared radiation as it escapes back out to space.

    In 1970, NASA launched the IRIS satellite measuring infrared spectra.
    In 1996, the Japanese Space Agency launched the IMG satellite which recorded similar observations.
    Both sets of data were compared to discern any changes in outgoing I.R. energy radiation over the 26 year period .
    .
    GOOGLE: IRIS Satellite
    GOOGLE: Japanese Satellite IMG
    Google this SOURCE: (Harries 2001).

    What they found was a drop in outgoing radiation at the wavelength bands that greenhouse gases such as CO2, methane (CH4), H2O absorb radiative energy.
    The reduction in outgoing radiation was consistent with Global Warming theoretical expectations.

    ** Thus the paper found “direct experimental evidence for a significant increase in the Earth’s greenhouse effect” and Global Warming.

    ( If Infra Red Energy, does not escape, it is retained in our Earth System as rising temperatures.)

    This result has been confirmed by subsequent Research papers using data from later satellites.

    Google this SOURCE: (Harries 2001).
    .
    When greenhouse gases absorb infrared radiation, the energy heats the atmosphere which in turn re-radiates infrared radiation in all directions.
    Much of it makes its way back to the earth’s surface.
    .
    Hence we expect to find more infrared radiation heading downwards.
    .
    Surface measurements from 1973 to 2008 find an increasing trend of infrared radiation returning to earth.
    .
    Google this SOURCE: (Wang 2009)
    .
    A regional study over the central Alps found that downward infrared radiation is increasing due to the enhanced greenhouse effect.
    .
    Google this SOURCE: (Philipona 2004)
    .
    Taking this a step further, an analysis of high resolution spectral data allowed scientists to quantitatively attribute the increase in downward radiation to each of several greenhouse gases.
    .
    Google this SOURCE: (Evans 2006)
    .
    The results lead the authors to conclude that “this experimental data should effectively end the argument by skeptics that no experimental evidence exists for the connection between greenhouse gas increases in the atmosphere and global warming.”

    The planet is accumulating heat
    .
    When there is more energy coming in than escaping back out to space, our climate accumulates heat. The planet’s total heat build up can be derived by adding up the heat content from the ocean, atmosphere, land and ice.
    .
    Google this SOURCE: (Murphy 2009)
    .
    Ocean heat content was determined down to 3000 metres deep.
    Atmospheric heat content was calculated from the surface temperature record and heat capacity of the troposphere.
    Land and ice heat content(eg-the energy required to melt ice)were also included.
    .
    Total Earth Heat Content from 1950.
    .
    Google this SOURCE: (Murphy 2009)
    .
    SOURCE: (Ocean data taken from Domingues et al 2008.)
    .
    From 1970 to 2003,
    the planet has been accumulating heat at a rate of 190,260 gigawatts with the vast majority of the energy going into the oceans.
    .
    Considering a typical nuclear power plant has an output of 1 gigawatt, imagine 190,000 nuclear power plants pouring their energy output directly into our oceans.
    .
    What about after 2003?
    A map of of ocean heat from 2003 to 2008 was constructed from ocean heat measurements down to 2000 metres deep .
    .
    Google this SOURCE: (von Schuckmann 2009)
    .
    Globally, the oceans have continued to accumulate heat to the end of 2008 at a rate of 0.77 ± 0.11 Wm?2, consistent with other determinations of the planet’s energy imbalance.
    .
    Google this SOURCE: (Hansen 2005)
    Google this SOURCE: (Trenberth 2009).

    The planet continues to accumulate heat.

    So we see a direct line of evidence that we’re causing global warming. Human CO2 emissions far outstrip the rise in CO2 levels.
    The enhanced greenhouse effect is confirmed by satellites and many surface measurements.
    The planet’s energy imbalance is confirmed by summations of the planet’s total heat content and ocean heat measurements….”

      You’ve failed to provide evidence that a warming Earth is a net loss.
