The official August temperature figures are out. And it is up.
And remember, these are the official figures. With the poor placement of stations (91 % of the stations are CRN 3 to 5 = bad to very poor); where they have purposely taken away the urban heat island effect, use huge smoothing radius, the historical “adjustment and tweaking” to cool the past etc.
Not to mention the great slaughter of GHCN stations 1990-1993 – roughly 63 % of all stations were “dropped”. Oddly enough many of them in cold places – Hmmm? Now the number of GHCN stations is back at the same numbers as in 1890.
Also remember that theUSstations are now nearly a third of the all GHCN world stations.

Aug 2011 departure from normal temperature
And as I said in the beginning – always remember that these figures are based on the official data that has been tweaked, “adjusted” and manipulated to fit their agenda (cool the past, ignore UHI and land use change factors, huge smoothing radius – 1200km etc.)..
August temperature 1900-2011
“The average temperature in August 2011 was 75.7 F. This was 3.0 F warmer than the 1901-2000 (20th century) average, the 2nd warmest August in 117 years. The temperature trend for the period of record (1895 to present) is 0.1 degrees Fahrenheit per decade.”
And the “warming trend” 1900-2011 is exactly 0.12 F degrees a decade. The same as in May and April. That is a whopping 1.2 F warmer in 100 years. The sweat is really breaking out!
And as usual there are some wild swings from year to year. Which humankind somehow mysteriously survived without any catastrophe.
Notice the rise from 1982 to 1983. A rise of 3.07 F degrees.
And the dramatic drop from 2003 to 2004. A drop of - 4.49 F degrees.
And notice the dramatic rise from 1946 to 1947. A rise of 3 F degrees.
That’s what I call RAPID WARMING and COOLING and an eminent treat to humankind!
And some years there was a temperature roller coaster.
From 2003 to 2004 the August temperature dropped by - 4.49 F degrees.
And from 2004 to 2005 a dramatic rise of 3.06 F degrees.
A total change of a whopping 7.55 F degrees in two years.
And according to the “science” and “logic” of the Global Warming Hysterics humankind would have been killed 2 times over during these years. Especially in North America.
And we all know what happened – USA ceased to exist because of this catastrophic rises and drop in temperature.
Except it didn’t – nothing happened. Everything went on as normal.
There are other years in the chart when the temperature increases 3– 3.5 F in one year. And still, somehow mysteriously, USA went on as normal.
So a “predicted” rise of 3- 4 F degrees in 100 years is a total catastrophe for humankind.
But an ACTUAL RISE OF 3.07 F degrees IN ONE YEAR is nothing.
And an ACTUAL CHANGE OF 7.55 F degrees in two years is also is nothing to bother about.
So we can easily survive an actual change of temperature of 7.55 F degrees in two years. But a “predicted”, (by these “eminent” Global Warming Hysteric “scientists” and their models which cannot predict the weather one week from now), rise of 3- 4 F degrees in 100 years is a total catastrophe for humankind.
Interesting ”science” wouldn’t you say.
This is the “stuff” that “Global Warming” is made of.
