Nearly all extreme weather is declining or at or near record lows

26 of the 50 U.S. states set their all-time high temperature records during the 1930s [rather than recently during the global warming hysteria] — which records still stand (though some have since been tied).  And an additional 11 state all-time high temperature records were set before 1930, and only two states have all-time record high temperatures that were set in the 21st century (South Dakota and South Carolina).

[F]or every place that there [are] warm anomalies, there are places with cool anomalies; it’s nature’s balancing act…  According to the Fourth U.S. National Climate Assessment, the average duration of warm spells (heat waves) has declined from around eleven days during the 1930s to 6.5 days during the 2000s.  In other words, the average duration of heat waves have declined by nearly 41% since the 1930s.

Extreme weather has occurred with monotonous regularity for millions of years, the vast majority of which occurred long before the Industrial Revolution.

[Even Obama’s Own] EPA Say Heatwaves Were Much Worse in 1930’s

http://notalotofpeopleknowthat.wordpress.com/2012/11/30/epa-say-heatwaves-much-worse-in-1930s/

———————–

Extreme weather is an integral part of the Earth’s climate.  Throughout the recorded history of the Earth’s climate, extreme weather events have always occurred somewhere, and are caused by large-scale atmosphere ocean flow patterns and their complex interaction with local/regional weather and climate features.  An examination of the 20th century climate of North America reveals that the decades of 1920s and 1930s, known as the Dust Bowl years, witnessed perhaps the most extreme climate over the Great American Plains and elsewhere.  There were recurring droughts and heat waves on the Canadian/American Prairies.

“[In a] scientific paper by lead authors Park Williams and John Abatzoglou titled ‘Observed Impacts of Anthropogenic Climate Change on Wildfire in California‘… [t]he authors… have hitched their [scholarly] fame and fortune to pushing a very simpl[listic] claim that [global warming] drives bigger [California] wildfires.  As will be seen [in this article], their advocacy appears to have caused them to stray from objective scientific analyses.

The Australian wildfires are tragic… [but only] in the states of New South Wales (home of Sydney) and Victoria (Melbourne) [are] the [2019-20] fires… much larger than they have been in the previous few decades…  [In fact the burnt areas this year are] vastly smaller than the 1851 Black Thursday fire, which in one day burnt a quarter of Victoria or 5 million hectares…  [The actual, official fire data themselves reveal] two things.  First, that the area burnt in Australia [in 2019-20] is not increasing and likely decreasing [compared to previous decades’ fires].  This result is similar to what we see across the world — lower, not higher burnt area.  Second, the [2019-20] Australian fire season in terms of area burnt is not unprecedented compared to the recent past.

[Hmm, well, what about the fires that weren’t started by global warming arsonists?]

Not only did the Australian government neglect the management of public land by not doing enough prescribed burns or removing enough timber from the forests, but it has also, though strict laws and harsh penalties, actively prevented its citizens from taking care of their own private property…  [I]n large parts of Australia, it remains illegal to remove trees from your land even in order to create fire breaks and protect your property.

… &

[I]t’s not climate change that has caused the [2019-20] disaster, but the criminal negligence of [left wing] governments that have tried to buy green votes by locking up vast tracts of land as national parks, yet failed to spend the money needed to control ground fuel and maintain fire trails.  Instead, they bowed to an ideology that obstructs necessary hazard reduction and prevents landowners from clearing vegetation around their own properties, all in thrall to the god of ‘biodiversity’…  Australia’s foremost bushfire researcher, Dr. Phil Cheney, … has spent 30 years trying to convince authorities that if ground fuel is reduced in a scientific, systematic fashion every year, fire intensity is reduced to a manageable level, no matter what the weather conditions…  ‘Climate change has not caused the current fire crisis,’ says Australian Capital Territory forester and former acting fire control officer Ian McArthur.  ‘Long unburnt fuels in national parks are the primary cause.  Basic fire management states that a fire needs oxygen, a heat source and fuel.  The only one of those that can be manipulated is fuel.  The more fuel, the more intense the fire, the harder it becomes to suppress the fire.‘”

“[When liberals govern, f]oresters and timber-getters [are] demonized by urban greens, their [servile] bureaucrats and academics, and their state-run media mates. State forests [are] converted to national parks and wilderness areas…  Every locked up, un-managed, un-burnt forest inevitably breeds disastrous wildfires.  The combination of heavy fuel load, poor access for firefighters, drought, hot winds, arsonists, and dry lightning has only one assured outcome: a bushfire tragedy for the forest and the neighbors…  If you want to stop wildfires, put qualified people [environmentalist liberals need not apply] back in charge of forests.

Wildfires

[FYI, the global warming arsonists released more CO2 by starting wildfires than the entire rest of their country combined during the 2019-20 fire season.]

“Pep Canadell, a lead scientist with Australia’s national research agency, estimates that the [2019-20 anthropogenic (via arson)] fires from Australia have already emitted 400 million tons of carbon dioxide.

[FYI, a few years ago climate alarmists were blaming severe flooding in Australia on anthropogenic global warming (see the Floods section at the bottom of this page).  Now they want you to believe human-caused global warming is causing fires.  This, of course, is another example of the fraud of anthropogenic global warming.  Climate alarmists want us to believe that  all  environmental disasters  and  all human tragedies are  caused  by CO2.]
