So, this is what climate science has sunk to!
Andrew Dessler is Professor of Atmospheric Sciences & climate “scientist” at Texas A&M.
There was time when science was about facts and truths. Now it seems that climate science is not interested in data but feelings.
The chart he disparages has been used as a long term indicator of US heatwaves for several years by the EPA. Moreover it tallies with other official charts published in the National Climate Assessment in 2017:
Heat waves (6-day periods with a maximum temperature above the 90th percentile for 1961–1990) increased in frequency until the mid-1930s, became considerably less common through the mid-1960s, and increased in frequency again thereafter (Figure 6.4). As with warm daily temperatures, heat wave magnitude reached a maximum in the 1930s
The vast majority of State record high temperatures were set in the 1930s, notable 1936:
We can also drill down to individual States, such as Dessler’s own Texas:
And his own part of Texas:
But hey Andy, who needs facts?
