The Heatwave Of May 10, 1896

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.

    I don’t know what happened in 1896, but I know what happened during the past three years. The last three years have each broken the global warmth record (2014, 2015 and 2016), the first time that we have seen three records in a row. The last record cold year was 1909. Why does post say that “the last five years have been near record low?” We are no where near the 1909 record.

      It was warmer by 0.04 degrees from 2015 to 2016. Margin of error is 0.1 degrees. It’s warmed about 1 degree Celsius since 1896. The little ice age ended in the 1850s. You’ve been sold a bill of goods with no receipt.

    Record heat in 1896, record cold in 1909. Sounds like climate change to me. There’s still records from the 30’s and 50’s left to break.

    Back in 1896 my Grandperents were just kids we still had horse power and the manure problem and the stench must have made ones eyes water and now nightly showers or baths no indoor plumbing limited electric lights no air condtioners and the snowflakes fell from the sky not sat around whining all day long and people had better things to worry about then the Polarbears
