Per @NWSQuadCities, -38° was reported in Mount Carroll, Illinois this morning. If accurate, this would set a new Illinois STATE record for low temperature— Greg Diamond (@gdimeweather) January 31, 2019
-56° in Cotton, Minnesota this AM was awfully close to their state record as well pic.twitter.com/gBAqCsyNa0
What's interesting about the temperature databases is that the data are systematically modified. What are NOT modified are the record temperatures. I post about this regularly, and since we're looking at a record, it's time to pick at that scab once again:
In fact, with all of this year after year of the HOTTEST YEAR EVER, no state has set a highest temperature record is more than 20 years. In fact, most (39 out of 50) state highest temperature records were set quite long ago - over 50 years ago, sometimes as long ago as 1888 (!).
Stop and think about that - if the science were as settled as people say, wouldn't there be at least one state that set an all time high record recently? What a strange warming that raises average temperatures but not record high temperatures.
But this crazy Global Warming doesn't seem to prevent record cold temperatures. What a very, very strange warming. So once again, let's talk about the adjustments to the climate data:
How much do the adjustments change the results?
We don't know, but people are starting to look. They're starting to find that adjustments change the data a lot. They change the data so much that they show that the earth is warming when the raw data may show that it's cooling.
Let me say that again: Thermometers may be showing that the Earth is cooling, but adjustments to this data show a rapid temperature rise.
Man, this climate science sure is complicated. Good thing that we have all these climate scientists to tell us to pay no attention to those temperature records behind the curtain. Top Men have spoken.
