17 U.S. Cities Headed for Warmest Year Ever » EcoWatch: yes, there were a couple of cities nearly all of which were in the narrow ‘warm’ belt along the West Coast and slightly inland, that were ‘hot’ last year. Phoenix, Arizona was one of them which amuses me. Virtually no days were ‘hottest ever’ but thanks to manipulating statistics, they can still claim it is hottest which is ridiculous. I have lived through 3 ‘hot cycles’ that come every 20 years when the sun peaks in its solar cycles. This is the coldest solar cycle, ever, rivaling the very cold 1970’s cycle. And any warmth last winter (summer was NOT hot at all in Phoenix!) has vanished as we see from maps this week, for example.
Midwest Winter Temperatures Were 15F Colder In 2014 Than In 1932 | Real Science: and this year is vying for the same record. We have seen cold records set all across the nation last year except for that tiny yellow parts we see in the above map. This is an exceptionally small part of the US (Canada froze pretty bad, too, of course).
It went down to 3º F here on my mountain last night. Here is an example of total insanity: 2014 Set for Record Hot; Record Cold Thing of the Past | Climate Central as the woman writer there who seems to be a complete dunderhead, froths onwards about how insignificant the super cold was last winter, claiming totally falsely that it affected only a small sliver of the nation instead of 90%. She, like all the Ships of Fools in climatology, focuses only on Los Angeles and nearby neighbor cities. OOH. So hot…there!
Idiots all! I know that LA fries brains like eggs on a Phoenix pavement in summer long ago before the cooling began! Here is an exchange of comments made by myself and Gail Combs about this matter at Steven’s website:
2014 was warmest year ever for Phoenix – CBS 5 – KPHO: this is just too stupid. At least this Associated Press article does mention meteorologist Steve Garry who mentions this is mainly due to Phoenix weather stations being on one of the worst urban heat spots in the US. Phoenix used to be very rural in my childhood.
This is so insane. My family lived in Arizona since 1880. Last year was NOT THE HOTTEST EVER. Period!
It was slightly warmer than other years during the winter but the summer was not hot at all and trust me, hot is super hot!
Furthermore, I remember Phoenix in 1955 and it was one tenth the size of today and the airport had Apache Airlines and AA lines only and was quite small and very rural, you walked on the tarmac to the plane to climb the ladder or stairs!
And now it is a major LA-sized mess of a heat island. Hugely hotter than the surrounding land. I remember when Phoenix and Scottsdale were mostly agriculture, I used to swim in the irrigation floods when they fed the citrus and date trees. We used to knock out dates from the trees using cactus wands which are very dry and flexible and light. I was only 5 years old and did this.
The farmers would shoot at us with birdshot if they saw us doing this….fun childhood. All gone today.
This sort of childish cherry picking by warmists irritate me no end. At Huffington Post, all the cop haters there who want chaos are sneering how this latest blast from Ice Age conditions north of us, elicits sneers about ‘well…this IS winter!’ Then these cretins tell us we are roasting to death and winters are vanishing. As if! None of these lunatics dare come to my mountain to debate me while naked in January. I would love to host this debate but alas, no one shows up and the bear population here is getting pissed at me. I better get my guns out and defend the home front.
