The Grapes Of Wrath | Real Science
Half of the population of Oklahoma fled the state during the 1930s to escape the heat and drought. The graph below shows why. There are 33 HCN stations which have been continuously active since at least 1930. During the summer of 1936, there were 268 110ºF temperatures recorded at those stations, or an average of almost nine per station. This year there were no 110ºF temperatures recorded.
NOAA has made all kinds of wildly fraudulent claims about Oklahoma, 2011 being the hottest summer ever in any state, but it didn’t rank in the top five – and wasn’t even in the same league as 1936.

Thousands of research papers are summarised by the IPCC’s WG1 into 14 chapters of about 100 pages each, which are further summarised into a 70-page technical report that is finally condensed into a Summary for Policymakers (SPM).

Recognising that even a 20-page SPM exceeds the attention span of most journalists, governments distil the politically-relevant essence down to a single soundbite – a meme which becomes the cultural motif of the entire report.
THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: Review paper finds the so-called unprecedented warmth of the late 20th century is simply a myth
A new paper from SPPI and CO2 Science reviews the scientific literature on historical temperature trends in China and concludes, "the results of these several studies demonstrate that the so-called unprecedented warmth of the late 20th century is simply a myth, as far as China is concerned. The apparent great warmth of this period in this particular part of the world appears to have been but a common manifestation of naturally-induced and regularly-recurring conditions similar to those that have been experienced in prior millennia. These results also serve as a testimony against those who would deny the existence of an extensive (hemispheric or global) Medieval Warm Period and Little Ice Age, as well as an extensive Roman Warm Period and Dark Ages Cold Period, and cyclical climate changes in general."
