It’s Not Your Imagination. Summers Are Getting Hotter. Extraordinarily hot summers — the kind that were virtually unheard-of in the 1950s — have become commonplace.
The New York Times claims are the exact opposite of reality. The hottest summer in the Northeast was 1949, and the second hottest was 1955. There is no indication that summers in the Northeast are getting hotter.
Frequency - Days - Northeast - Exception - Summers
The frequency of hot days in the Northeast has generally been low since the 1950s, with the notable exception of 1988, 1999 and 2002. Recent summers have been among the coolest on record.
The Northeast US has had seventeen days since 1895 which averaged above 95F (35C.) Five occurred in 1911, and all but one occurred more than sixty years ago. The hottest day on record in the Northeast was July 3, 1911 and the second hottest was July 4, 1911.
Heatwaves - New - York
There have been many other terrible heatwaves in New York.
Australia also had their worst heatwave on record during January of 1896.
Heatwave - Thousands - People
The 1901 heatwave killed thousands of people.
The 1911 heatwave killed thousands of people in New England and across the country.
New - York - Times - Heat - Claims
The New York Times claims about heat are completely fraudulent, and their claims about cold and snow are equally as bad. In 2006, they announced the “endless summer.”
