Southwest Snow and the Global Warming Hoax

Currently it is snowing in the Superstition Mountains just east of Phoenix. A normal high in that area for this time of year is close to 70°. It is also snowing in Las Vegas, where a normal high today would be in the mid-60s. We were told that global warming would soon put an end to snow. Meanwhile, a staggering 40 inches of snow is forecast for central Arizona. So much for the heat and drought the media shrieks about.

But… I thought every passing year was the hottest year ever, proving that the Green New Deal must be inflicted so as to repeal the Industrial Revolution and reduce us to a hand-to-mouth level of existence lest our carbon emissions bake the planet.

Jay Lehr, science director at the Heartland Institute, lays this nonsense to rest. He notes that the temperature data federal bureaucrats feed to a left-wing media eager to hype them are bogus, as is the theory that temperature is determined by the level of harmless CO2 in the atmosphere:

The highest record temperature ever reported was 136 degrees Fahrenheit in Libya in 1922. The record high temperature for the United States was 134 degrees Fahrenheit in Death Valley, California in 1913. Fossil fuel emissions in 1913 and 1922 were negligible compared to today.

The coldest temperature ever reported was minus 129 degrees Fahrenheit in Vostok, Antarctica, in 1983 when Carbon dioxide emissions were five times higher than in 1913. The coldest temperature in the lower 48 states (excluding Alaska) of minus 64 degrees Fahrenheit was recorded in 1996 in Embarass, Minnesota. Did the media and climate scientists warn that this low temperature indicated that we are headed for another Ice Age?

No, but they would have if that record had been set in the 1970s, when the media was trying to sell us on an impending ice age.

The strongest heat wave ever recorded occurred in July 1936, generating high temperatures in half of America’s 50 states. In 1935, fossil fuel emissions were 25 times lower than today.

Carbon levels are significantly higher, yet temperatures are not, which debunks the theory global warming ideology is built upon.
