On May 10, 1896, most of the Eastern US was over 90 degrees. More than three-fourths of USHCN stations were over 80 degrees. New Bedford, Massachusetts was 96 degrees, which is 43 degrees warmer than today’s forecast high. Portsmouth, Ohio was 98 degrees, 40 degrees warmer than today’s forecast. The hottest place in the country was Paris, Illinois at 99 degrees.
The five hottest May 10ths in the US were 1896, 1963, 1962, 1936 and 1916. The last five years have all been close to record cold, and this year will also be cold.
If that sort of heat occurred now, climate scientists would say they were 99% certain it was due to man-made CO2, and that government needs to take action. This is because climate scientists aren’t scientists and they don’t do science.
