"Hot, Damn Hot!" - July Is Hottest Month. Ever

Tyler Durden's picture

In the immortal words of Robin Williams in Good Morning Vietnam: July was Hot, Damn Hot! In fact, according to NOAA, it was the hottest July and hottest month on record and there's no short-term indication of this massively dry spell ending anytime soon. What is perhaps even more impressive is that the the last year has been the warmest 12-month period for the contiguous US since records began in 1895!

Just crazy anomalous conditions wherever you look in July...


with March through July all setting records for highest temperatures on record...



and the warmest 12-month period on record (since 1895!)...


which is summarized by Robin Williams thus:

Damn Tyler.

Now we're going to get the AGW prosletiser's come out of the woodwork.

Maybe.  Which surface stations did they pull all of this super hot July data from?  I hear the one in the middle of that Walmart parking lot is pretty accurate.

Please...absolutely nothing Robin Williams has ever said has been "immortal" or funny.

That guy is a boring blowhard.

You're in more dire need of a blowjob than any white man I know.

Dear Fuu

Thank you, you are right.  I will ask some of my Keynseian colleagues if they will service me.

Figures, you go for the monetary stimulus everytime.

Divine judgement forthcoming, bitchez.

It's the methane bubbling out of the Arctic, bitchez!

We may have just hit the "runaway" part of global warming.  Which after a couple decades may then crash the ocean conveyor belts and ultimately lead to massive cooling.

Take a look at the sun spots on the left side column of this site. Spot numbers are low this solar max year and are migrating toward the north and south poles as time goes by. This is an indication the sun is going into  cyclical minimum phase again. Look for brutal winters in the coming years.

Maybe if I tithe my income to AlGore he'll turn down the thermostat. 

In any case a statist solution with more taxes and more control over the individual, please.  I know my own personal methane production is out of control and I need the state's assistance.

Speaking of cyclical phases...

It's about as hot as 1934 again when there was also a cyclical drought in the US that was known as the "dustbowl".

Don't tell me you actually believe the sun has anything to do with the earth's climate....preposterous!

ZerOhead's picture

I know... next thing they will tell us is that if you print trillions of new dollars it could lead to inflation...

TBT or not TBT's picture

If a forest is converted into dollars but no one lends the money out, can there be inflation?

Total credit far outweighs narrower measures of the money supply. Ergo, with credit tight, lots of money can be printed while debt deflation rampages away. Or something.

Fukushima Sam's picture

I saw that!  Certainly one piece of good news in crazy times.

"July Is Hottest Month. Ever"

Only if by "ever" you mean since the start of the current manipulated temperature record that has been used and abused by those interested in creating a global eco-dictatorship.

Not only has the earth been hotter in the past, it's been a LOT hotter. We should be thankful things are heating up. The real danger is if they cooled off.

Sudden Debt's picture

nothing a cool fresh wind won't solve.

As Sudden Debt knows, it has been a quite cool and rainy summer in Belgium, very few warm days.

Must be the hot air from 'US citizenism' there in America.

Did you guys say something?  I couldn't understand you with all those mayo-covered french fries in your mouth.

Don't be too hard rp, they did give us the Belgian made Browning "Sweet 16."

In fact, I'm pretty sure it was so hot that warm-blooded animals didn't even exist.  The upper midwest once had a tropical inland sea.

knukles's picture

Greenland was once aplenty of vineyards.
Antarctica was once a tropical rainforest.

And all long before mankind did fuck all to the environment.
Oh, excuse me, musta been dinosaur farts before they became fossil fuels.

Buncha fucktards.

forrestdweller's picture

yes, antarctica was a tropical forrest when it was situated on the equator.

the continental plates move slowly, they taught you this at school,

or at least they did at the school i went to.

krispkritter's picture

Apparently your school neglected to teach you how to read. The warming was due to a change in ocean currents, not it's proximity to the equator. Jeebus people! Use this dub-dub-dub thingy once in awhile!

Not Too Important's picture

Actually, geologic records show there was a massive, and sudden, pole shift about 13,000 years ago. They've found wooly mammoths in Siberia with undigested food in their mouths, and the area then was quite comfortable.

One of the things about 12/21/2012, is that we are supposed to have another pole shift. Some say the shift happened because another planet scraped us. The 'myth' of Nibiru.

It's all in 'Fingerprints Of The Gods'. Quite interesting. It seems all the math left by the ancients is all accurate, and we've only recently, with the invention of computers, been able to determine the truth of their equations.

We may all disagree with timing, but the ancient's math is totally correct.

Maybe this is why no one in leadership really cares about the disaster at Fukushima. Hmm.

knukles's picture

@Not too... I've no idea why folks red-lined your comments.
It's all fact based, non-judgmental.
And the "myth" of the pole shift is recorded geologically.  Period. 
The Ancients (whom ever they were) had calculated the very precession of the earth.
Which cannot be done with the means which modern man attribute to our predecessors.  Nor could the construction of many of the world's megaliths.  Period.
The history of the world, of man, of development is a lie perpetuated by those within the sciences to remain in positions of money, power, property and prestige

A very good place to start is by assuming everything is a lie, a fabrication, an illusion.  Even one's own sense of self, manipulated and warped by our very own ego, creates a finely woven morasses of delusions and ignorance.

Contempt prior to investigation....

Quantum Nucleonics's picture

Easy with the condescending attitude!  He's correct.  Antarctica has been a forest (though more sub-tropical than tropical) even in its current position over the south pole.  About 20 million years ago changing currents allowed large scale formation of ice.  Few people realize that the earth has rarely been as cold as it is today.

"That guy is a boring blowhard"


It's ironic that comment came from a clueless economist.

Head over to the "used car thread" MEEEchElle is handing them out if you elbow Valerie Jarrett out of the way first..

AU5K's picture

All those SUVs in 1921/1934 really raised the temp back then.


Hide the decline.


Control the sheeple.

francis_sawyer's picture

Actually ~ It was the Cadillac Escalades driven by the Clovis Indians 10,000 years ago that caused the Polar Ice Sheets to retreat...

RacerX's picture

Maybe there was high Methane then? I've heard those Indians can rip some mean ones.

Poetic injustice's picture

Sounds plausible. Can we get 50 million grant to dig a big hole looking for Clovis Indians Escalades?

SelfGov's picture

They didn't need SUVs. The world was using record amounts of coal for the 10 years leading up to the period. Those records held until just recently.


Plan Ahead - Plant a Garden. 

easypoints's picture

It doesn't matter if it's cooling, warming, man-made, natural, or both to me. All that matters is if the agriculture industry can produce more food, every year, to support a exponentially growing population, for the rest of my life. Maybe. With any kind of climate instability, one way or the other, probably not.

BigJim's picture

More CO2 = more plant growth. Look it up.

SelfGov's picture

Increased amounts of CO2 don't mean jack squat in depleted soil.

This is the Green Revolution Bubble popping.

Not Too Important's picture

This is all due to the Walsh-Immelt Belt, the inner-atmosphere radiation belt spread across the Northern Hemisphere from Fukushima.

100's of Hiroshima-sized nuclear bombs worth of radiation being emitted every hour, every day, for 1,000's of years. We are only a year and a half into this.

Give it a decade. There won't be anything - or anyone - in the US.

“A recent study was prepared for Greenpeace Germany by international nuclear safety expert Dr. Helmut Hirsch. Dr. Hirsch’s assessment, based on data published by the French government’s radiation protection agency (IRSN) and the Austrian government’s Central Institute for Meteorology and Geodynamics (ZAMG) found that the total amount of unstable radionuclides Iodine-131 and Caesium-137 released between March 11 and March 23 has been so high that the Fukushima crisis already equates to three INES 7 incidents. Release of radiation from the stricken reactors has reached 10,000 teraBequerels (10,000 trillion Bequerels) per hour, measured for radioactive Iodine-131.” http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=24292
“The uranium bomb which the United States dropped on Hiroshima at the end of World War II released 89 tera becquerels. It killed 140,000 people – many instantly, others within weeks of the blast as they succumbed to severe radiation burns.” http://voices.yahoo.com/fukushimas-nuclear-disaster-radiation-released-was-9025493.html
So, a rough estimate is that Fukushima is spewing the equivalent of 112 Hiroshima-type nuclear bombs worth of radiation every hour, of every day. That’s 981,120 atomic bombs a year going off worth of radiation into our biosphere.  


easypoints's picture

Don't forget about the hundreds of other reactors we can neither afford to maintain or decomission.

Quantum Nucleonics's picture

Plus warmer temperatures mean a lot more arable land at higher latitude.

Calmyourself's picture

Demographic tables are your friend, use them.. Your premise is seriously flawed.

BooMushroom's picture

The garden is planted. Had fresh eggplant, tomato, and basil scramble in scrambled eggs (storebought eggs).

BUT THAT SECOND GRAPH IS HORSESHIT! Look at the bottom axis. It is totally nonsensical. It's cherry picked in NON-chronological order to make the bars look like warming is constantly increasing.
