1910s/20s/30s Had the Heat on Us

Highest temperature ever recorded was in Aziziyah, Libya 136 degrees Fahrenheit. This occurred in September of 1922.

The highest temperature ever recorded in the United States was in Death Valley, California. In July of 1913, it was
134 degrees Fahrenheit.

Randy Hall of CNSNews writes:

"From June 1 to August 31, 1930, 21 days had high temperatures that were 100 degrees or above" in the metropolitan Washington, D.C., area, Patrick Michaels, senior fellow for environmental studies at the libertarian
Cato Institute, told Cybercast News Service. "That summer has never been approached, and it's not going to be approached this year."


In a separate but related story,
John Ritter of USA Today notes:

In May, government forecasters predicted 13 to 16 tropical storms, eight to 10 of which could grow into hurricanes, during the six-month Atlantic hurricane season that started June 1. The hurricane center will update its forecast Tuesday....

...Three tropical storms this year — most recently the waning Chris — have failed to become hurricanes.

Hey, Al Gore, is this just another inconvenient truth?
