“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.”– H. L. Mencken
1,500 Years Of Heatwaves
A RECORD OF HOT SUMMERS.
IN 637 the heat was so great in France and Germany that all springs dried up, and water became so scarce that many people died of thirst.
In 873 work in the field had to be given up ; agricultural labourers persisting in their work were struck down in a few minutes, so powerful was the sun.
In 993 the sun’s rays were so fierce that vegetation burned up as under the action of fire.
In 1000 rivers ran dry under the protracted heat ; the fish were left dry in heaps, and putrified in a few hours. The stench that ensued produced the plague.
Men and animals venturing in the sun in the summer of 1022 fell down dying; the throat parched to a tinder and the blood rushed to the brain.
In 1132 not only did the rivers dry up but the ground cracked on every side, and became baked to the hardness of stone. The Rhine in Alsace nearly dried up.
Italy was visited with terrific heat in 1139; vegetations and plants were burned up.
During the battle of Bela, in 1260, there were more victims made by the sun than by weapons; men fell down sunstruck in regular rows.
In 1303 and 1304 the Rhine, Loire, and Seine ran dry.
Scotland suffered particularly in 1625; men and beasts die in scores.
The heat in several French departments during the summer of 1705 was equal to that in a glass furnace. Meat could be cooked by merely exposing it to the sun. Not a soul dared venture out between noon and 4 p.m.
In 1718 the thermometer rose to 118 deg.
In 1779 the heat at Bologna was so great that a great number of people was stifled. There was not sufficient air for the breath, and people had to take refuge under-ground.
In July, 1793, the heat became intolerable. Vegetables were burned up, and fruit dried upon the trees. The furniture and woodwork in dwelling-houses cracked and split up; meat went bad in an hour.
The rivers ran dry in several provinces during 1811; expedients had to be devised for the grinding of corn.
In 1822 a protracted heat was accompanied by storms and earthquakes; during the drought legions of mice overran Lorraine and Alsace, committing incalculable damage.
In 1832 the heat brought about cholera in France; 20,000 persons fell victims to the visitation in Paris alone.
In 1846 the thermometer marked 125 deg. in the sun.
50C (122F) in 1930
48C (118F) in 1773
Meanwhile, people in British Columbia are terrified by nice weather.
1934 – Worldwide Drought, Poles Melting, England To Drown, Freak Weather
NASA and NOAA had good reason to make the heat of 1934 disappear. The heat and drought was global, the Arctic was dissolving, England was going to drown, and the whole world had “freak weather.” If people knew about that, it would wreck their global warming scam.
1934 and 1936 were unprecedented years for heat and drought in US. But the extreme weather wasn’t just in the US – it was global. Click on the 1934 LA Times below to see it full sized.
During 1934, the world experienced unprecedented drought and heat.
1970’s Global Cooling Scare
Front Page of the New York Times, July 18, 1970. US and Soviet scientists were worried about Arctic cooling and expanding Arctic ice, and wanted to melt the Arctic by spreading coal dust on it.
The Director at the National Center for Atmospheric Research and his leading scientist were pushing global cooling.
Climate experts wanted to melt the Arctic to stop global cooling.
A year earlier, Holdren’s co-author (Paul Ehrlich) said the US would run out of water by 1974 and food by 1980.
Ehrlich and the United Nations wanted to poison Africans to save the planet.
Just like now, Holdren’s goal was to choke off the US energy supply.
Holdren now forecasts ice-free winters in the Arctic.
…if you lose the summer sea ice, there are phenomena that could lead you not so very long thereafter to lose the winter sea ice as well. And if you lose that sea ice year round, it’s going to mean drastic climatic change all over the hemisphere.
– John Holdren, 2009 at the 18:54 mark of this CBC interview
This is all very inconvenient for the criminals known as the climate science community, so they simply tried to erase it – by claiming the ice age scare never occurred.
These people are not scientists. They are dangerous psychopaths, and need to be removed from any position where they can hurt other people.
