Summers In Ohio Were Much Hotter In The 1930’s

NOAA have been been making a big deal about the number of days over 100F last summer, as part of their “extreme year” propaganda. In my analysis  “NOAA Deception Over 2012 Heatwave”, a couple of days ago, I showed that summer temperatures in Kansas had been much, much higher in the 1930’s than they were last year.

I have now carried out the same analysis in Ohio, at a rural USHCN station in Philo. Station metadata shows that this site has been in the same location since the 1930’s.

Philo has a population of 733, and is in a fairly central position, not far from Columbus. Using the monthly meteorological records for Philo, that are available on the NOAA website, I have analysed the number of days when maximum temperature reached 100F, (see below for an example).


Year No of Days >= 100F Average Summer Max Temperature
2012 1 86.6
1934 8 91.2
1936 7 88.5


The single day, listed for last year, was 7th July, when the temperature was 100F. By contrast, in both 1934 and 1936, temperatures reached 106F.

On every count, the summers of 1934 and 1936 were much more extreme than 2012.

So once again we see that NOAA are misleading people by not telling them the whole story.

    Here is the graph showing the influence of the NOAA adjustments for Philo. Note how the clear cooling trend since the 1930s has been obliterated by the adjustments.
