The Morning Rant: “Record Heat!” (When Heat Waves Are Reported By The Statistically Ignorant)

Every summer, there are heat waves somewhere on the globe, with “record heat” recorded in multiple locations. Along with these heat waves, the prophets of climate apocalypse warn that all these “extreme” new temperature records are proof of global warming.

I apologize for throwing math at you this morning, but I can only take so much statistical ignorance without wanting to respond.

First off, temperature records have been kept, depending on location, for about 100 to 140 years. Let’s split the difference and call it 120 years on average. Each weather station has a historical “record high” for each day of the year, and also a “record low” for each day of the year. Therefore, with 365 record high and 365 record low temperatures at each station over the past 120 years, an equal distribution (e.g. 365 divided by 120) would mean that each station records about 3 record highs and 3 record lows every year.

How many times have you heard a fear-mongering journalist or politician hyping “an all-time record high for this date at the South Succotash weather station.” So what? Statistically, anything less than three record highs per year at South Succotash is below average.

And how many weather stations are there in the US? NOAA’s domestic database is composed of almost 15,000 weather stations.

So with 15,000 weather stations across the US, and with each expected to have on average 3 record highs per year, there should be approximately 45,000 record daily highs per year in the United States.

Any MSM journalist reading this is probably already lost and unable to comprehend that “new record highs” doesn’t simply mean “hotter than it used to be,” but if they’re still with me, their follow-up question might be: “But what about meteorological stations that are suddenly recording an all-time record high temperature, ever?”

Here’s a recent story to that effect.

European cities set all-time temperature records amid unrelenting heat wave [CNN - 7/15/2022]

New records have been set as temperatures topped 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit) across much of Spain and Portugal Wednesday amid a persistent heat wave across western Europe.

On Wednesday, Zamora set its own record after reaching 41.1 degrees Celsius (105.98 degrees Fahrenheit), according to climate statistician Max Herrera. Soria set a record of 38.7 degrees Celsius (101.66 degrees Fahrenheit) that same day.

OK, let’s do some math again. There are over 22,000 European meteorological reporting stations across Europe and the Mediterranean. 22,000 stations divided by 120 years means that on average there should be 183 European weather stations that report an all-time, record-high temperature, each and every year.

Of course, “average” doesn’t mean “normal,” some years have nasty heat waves with lots of new records, and others are milder with no new records.

And don’t forget, when there are record low temperatures, the climatistas still blame “climate change” for “extreme weather.” Everything I wrote about record highs up above applies to record lows – there are just as many.

Aside from the math up above, don’t forget just how dishonest climate science has become. Remember how NOAA was caught systematically altering historical temperature records to create warming trends that did not exist before they made the adjustments?

The Stunning Statistical Fraud Behind The Global Warming Scare [Investors Business Daily – 3/29/2018]

NOAA has made repeated "adjustments" to its data, for the presumed scientific reason of making the data sets more accurate.

Nothing wrong with that. Except, all their changes point to one thing — lowering previously measured temperatures to show cooler weather in the past, and raising more recent temperatures to show warming in the recent present.

Also, bad data collection is accepted in climate science if it serves the agenda. The weather station in Pinhao, Portugal just recorded an all-time temperature record of 47 degrees Celsius. Take a look at the weather station. It’s sitting atop a stone wall, next to a brick wall. Any data collected there is worthless, because it’s capturing heat stored in the rocks and bricks.

How many other “all time records” are being recorded in urban areas with weather stations adjacent to stone, rock, and parking lots?

The most primitive religious belief of humans underlies the climate hysteria – that bad weather is caused by sinful human behavior, and if the virtuous don’t stop the sinners, then apocalypse is imminent.

It’s way past time to stop listening to the statistically ignorant evangelists of climate science, and start mocking their ignorance and credulousness instead.

25 Besides the doctoring, there's also the the, shall we say, optimistic level of precision with the available instrumentation.

"Ocean temperature in the Atlantic rose by a staggering 0.2 degrees over five years" is the kind of stories that leads to. There aren't enough buoys, they don't stay in place well enough, they aren't online and reporting over long enough time periods, etc. Divining hundredths or thousandths of a degree's worth of difference from such sparse instrumentation and then using it to define regulatory requirements crosses the line into academic and policy fraud, but they do it routinely. Even if all the buoys (and the land-side stations, for that matter) were well-placed, plentiful and always online, there aren't enough of them to measure changes to the level of precision that they report.

Space-based observation (weather satellites) are probably much better solutions to the climate data problem, but those all too often show the wrong kind of evidence.

53 My favorite small-scale artifact of absurd climate predictions is on real estate sites like Redfin.

Redin has a "climate risks" section provided by some climatology big data outfit. In that section, they go over predicted climate-related events - number of severe thunderstorms, drought probability, etc. - for the year 2050. They put this up with a straight face (presumably).

Local weather reporting bats about .850 on predicting storm activity for the day after tomorrow, yet these jokers put out that for the house you're looking at, you should expect 23 severe storms in 2050. It's preposterous and stupid, yet presumably there's a market for this idiocy (that, or Redfin is looking to up its ESG score).

54 The "adjustments" that NOAA made to the temperature record of the US that lowered past temperatures were adjusted based on the CO2 induced warming hypothesis. CO2 was lower in the past, so the temperatures were lowered.

Then they use it to "prove" the the CO2 induced warming hypothesis. They admitted it, in writing, at some point and I've seen it, but I doubt I could find a link.

79 Saw a couple funny maps from the UK over the weekend. They were weather maps of the UK, one from a few years ago and one current. They used little sun graphics and temp readings to show the high heat in various location around the UK in the earlier map but in the current map they just painted the entire country red along with the temperatures.

The funny part was that every single temp reading in the older map was higher than the current map.

Narrative Uber Alles.

80 ".. an equal distribution (e.g. 365 divided by 120) would mean that each station records about 3 record highs and 3 record lows every year."

The fraud of changing the records lower is horrible.
(Tony Heller has been exposing them for a long time, and getting cancelled for his efforts)

But one can't assume there will be an even distribution, there are hotter periods and cooler, but indeed there are many records set continuously in different places.

Oh, there's probably some record. It's pretty easy to find records. If it isn't the one-day highest temperature, it's the highest temperature on that date, or the that day moved the 50-year daily average to it's highest point ever, or there were more weather stations in the area reporting over X degrees than ever before, or the hottest 2:00 PM hour recorded, or ...

You can find records anywhere if you're willing to decontextualize or change the scale arbitrarily. "This is the greatest song ever written about a 25 year-old man getting laid off from a coal mine in August of 1932 and then having to go work for the TVA instead."

129 WaPo headline: Sea ice over Antarctica just shrank to its smallest on record

Nature article describing this phenomenon:
"Antarctic sea ice hits lowest minimum on record
Natural variability is probably the cause, although global warming could have a role.
"

The record low was partly due to strong winds pushing ice out of the Ross Sea, a bay off the coast of Antarctica, to areas farther north, where it is warmer. There, the ice broke up and melted, says Walt Meier, a senior research scientist at NSIDC, who is based at the University of Colorado Boulder. “I think much, if not all, of the event can be ascribed to natural variability,” says Meier.

147 While watching my local weather, one of my favorite things to look for is the difference between the average and record high temperatures. In the Houston area, it’s not unusual for average to record highs in the summer to be as close as 4 degrees apart.

That tells me we don’t vary the usual highs very much, probably because we sit on very high humidity and getting much above normal takes a lot of heat to bake out the water first. It also means it doesn’t take much of a change to set a new record.

Maybe this has been asked and answered already, but am I the only one who found it extremely strange that 400 law enforcement officers, from multiple branches of law enforcement, were called in to take care of one single school shooter?

When has that ever happened in the case of any other mass shooter in recent history?

And then not only were 400 officers on site, none of the 400 did a damn thing to stop the massacre once there.

Am I the only one who finds this extremely suspicious? Not ONE officer among 400 had any 'toxic masculinity' to say "fuck this, I'm not waiting any longer, let's roll"? Not ONE?

It's a "beauty walks a razor's edge" kind of thing. Things get bad - for whatever reason, real or imagined, or perceived - "they" start looting the Food King. At some point though - nothing gets restocked, if lawlessness continues.

Then "they" start looting trucks/trains whatever - and that's all she wrote. Nothing gets in the stores, nothing even gets TO the trucks. There's yer "Trucker's Strike".

The government can activate the National Guard - but they are either deployed on yet another overseas adventure - or perhaps kicked out due to declination of the clot shot, etc.

I don't like to think alarmist ... but "supply chains" are very much National Security. So is Energy.

Apocalypto is a great movie. So they are on the top of the pyramid, the king, his wives, the high priests and those to be sacrificed. The populace is below and is very restive. At one point you can see the King looking very nervous, as he contemplates the crowd below and the potential fate that awaits him if they lose "faith" in his administration. More sacrifices were ordered.

I think it's funny because liberals are more likely to be college educated, northerners are a lot smarter than southern people, and we have highly credentialed people that hold government offices.

And yet in a Northern, liberal enclave of highly credentialed people, they are too f*cking retarded to predict what your average trailer-park reject, minimum wage worker in rural Tennessee could.

258 More compelling to me is noting how many record LOWS are recorded. That does not indicate increased warming due to atmospheric contaminants trapping heat. And its far more troubling than warming.

Watt's Up With That did a long series (several years) showing the placement of weather stations and how nearly every urban station is placed in a spot where its going to pick up higher readings than it should. When combined with WUWT's stories showing how the national weather services adjust the temperatures of weather stations outside urban areas up to match the urban ones and you can see the fraud unfold before your eyes.

260 Dunno if already noted above, but Buck's excellent little analysis is just the start in this whole category of statistical illiteracy underlying climastrology and its associated medieval-totalitarian hysterics.

The main one, of course, is that "records" covering less than 0.001% of "climate history" can't be the basis for any inferences at all. (I made that number up, but the point stands)

Natural variation, since there's been an atmosphere and long before humans existed, is known from the geologic record, without doubt. Demonstrating that current phenomena are *not* natural variation is the burden carried by the basic premise of "climate science", and I don't have the impression that anything notable much less persuasive along those lines has been developed.

Each station would have to have a record high and record low for a given day so that should be about the rate which "records" are produced(independent of the climate doing anything special) though we'd expect it to decline over time as we built a larger data set.

Gotta figure a bunch of the Border Patrol guys were locals who either had kids (or wives) in that school or knew people who did, so that's probably why so many turned up. I don't think they were all "called in," exactly. And storming schools is outside their jurisdiction so I get why those BP guys didn't go in guns blazing, at least at first.

376 by the count of the Texas House Committee. I expect over 95 percent were not ordered or requested to go there. They went because someone they knew or was related worked at or attended the school, or because they believed it was their duty or they could somehow help. There was no overall direction or coordination. Most of the 376 probably caused confusion or distraction and did not do anything related to getting the shooter taken down.

271 Nitrogen is 78 to 79 percent of dry air. A lot of people get this confused with it being 79 percent of the atmosphere. Oxygen is about 21 percent. And CO2 is about 400 parts per million.

Water, on the other hand is completely neglected in these discussions. The amount of oxygen varies greatly from day to day and it also has the highest heat capacity of all of the gases in the atmosphere. It is also the only substance in the atmosphere that can go through a phase change (solid, liquid, gas) where massive amounts of heat are exchanged.

Not to mention, who the hell sent the word out to all the different agencies to send a combined 400 officers?

I would bet that if the school simply sent calls out to all parents with firearms to come help, they would have arrived and put down the shooter within minutes. Didn't one mother defy the on-site law enforcement and go inside to rescue her children?

Meanwhile the Russians are planning Nuremberg trials in Ukraine - it isn't clear if it is for general nebulous "NAZI" ties, corruption, bio labs, or the 8 years of attacking Donbas by the Uke government...but I see the western press is already claiming it will be "show trials".

And...I have to laugh. You can argue that governments should be very careful about trials that appear politically motivated. You can argue the strong get to do whatever they want.

According to her genetic testing, she's all British somehow. Can't narrow it down further than that.

Her maiden name is German, though there is apparently no German in her. It's possible that there's no cheating in the family (it definitely wasn't her parents) because her dad is only supposed to be 1/8 German or so.

373 There was some Sci-Fi guy, scientist, ethicist or other who penned a warning about the world becoming nanotech goo or some such in the early aughts or so.

The general grey goo problem is arguably the biggest danger the world faces, after Joe Biden launch a nuclear war with Russia I suppose.

Fortunately we aren't their with nanotechnology yet - but we already saw with COVID what happens when the governments of the world decide they can take risks that might kill millions or more to somehow make things "better"

374 The real "next level" lying about climate happens when climate people "homogenize" data. They take the high and low readings of a group of stations and blend them to come up with an average. Apparently the math is so complex that they can come up with averages that are higher than any individual readings in the group. The Darwin Airport has always been a prime example of this bullshit.

==
the only problem with your plan is that Lake Erie is a fairly shallow lake and when there is a couple of years of drought the levels drop quite a bit and so you have less volume to absorb, what in drought conditions is a higher average heating time frame. More sunlight, less cloud.

its a wildly complex system and you can't take its temperature in one place at one time, or even multiple places and times and come up with a meaningful number to apply to the whole thing over time.

438 Its just amazing to me that even somewhat educated people will confidently tell you its way hotter now than it was "when they were a kid".

Agreed...I also see the case of people that moved from a northern state to a southern one. I know one woman that moved from NH to NC...and she keeps complaining it is so much hotter now due to global warming.

No you stupid #$@#@# NC is way hotter then NH!!!

When the Aussies look northward, they see a billion Chinese, a billion Indonesians, and a billion Indians (dot, not feather). With a population of only about 25 million, they're kinda fooked.

440 The whole thing of bussing the invaders to DC is funny enough, but the plan could be improved. If I were a border state governor, I'd be sending most of my catch to other deep blue cities like Boston and NYC. And I'd work with other border states to concentrate the very worst of the worst - the MS-13 bangers, the cartel mules, the most diseased and wretched and desperate mestizos, etc. - and bus *them* to DC.

And arm them all with automatic weapons, and a three-week supply of bath salts.

He needs to collect CO2 for rocket fuel for the return trip from Mars. The plan is to crack it with water to make methane. If he can do that there he can do it here, and will become twice as rich, that sonovabitch will deserve it.

Iron, and everything below it, are the result of fusion reactions inside of stars. It takes more energy to fuse Fe than you get out, so that's the end of that.

Above Fe, the elements are only formed in supernova explosions, which are spewed forth. Thus, literally stardust. The calcium in your bones was made by an (much larger than our sun) exploding star.

Thorium reactors are a pie-in-the-sky stalking horse used by the Greentards to delay the use of perfectly safe and efficient uranium reactors for energy. I know they can work, but we don't any standardized designs, and we don't have a vast supply of easily-mined thorium, like we do for uranium.

Build the uranium reactors now, get them to work putting power into the grid, and then add the thorium reactors into the mix if the tech matures and cheap thorium becomes available.

455 I just looooove the ominous annual reports of Record HIGH temp from "Death Valley, Furnace Wells, Deadmans Flat"
There were recent reports of "record high temps" in the Pacific NW where retreating snowpack/glaciers exposed entire villages of previously unknown human inhabitants...and the gist of the story was that these temps were now going to make the preservation/study of the sites harder. Totally devoid of the disconnect from logic in the stories.

I saw someone on a financial forum discussing how they wanted to bury their pool because they think its "just going to get hotter" from global warming and it will be unaffordable to keep it. Even if you want to believe the earth is 1 degree hotter than it was 100 years ago, its absurd to think it effects available water.

I really think much of this "drought" talk is self-inflicted and just the enviro left gaslighting us.

We have plenty of water, it's how that water is managed.

460 In the town I moved out of they were having a debate about allowing a massive new apartment complex.

Someone pointed out we already had water shortages every year in the summer now.

The argument that pro-apartment folks in the town government made as they approved the additional construction? Well its the state that determines if we have a water restrictions so it doesn't matter if we have more people in the town using water.

We are governed by idiots.

Apartments RUIN nice areas. Just a fact. Even in nice areas, the area around the apartment will have a certain element.

We have all sorts going in around me, nobody in town wants them, but somehow the developers always get them.

I don't have the clip to link but Dr Peter McCullough is claiming that the Quality Control on the Jab was terrible with poor controls on manufacturing and post manufacturing storage, so a large amount of the shots were useless and degraded to intertness, but the ones that were made and handled correctly are the ones killing people.
