Hottest Days Ever? Don’t Believe It

by Rod Williams, July 7, 2023 - I accept the science community's consensus that the earth is warming, and human activity is a major contributor. However, when global warming alarmist reports that a certain day was the hottest day ever, I'm skeptical and want to know how they know that.  The Wall Street Journal published an article titled "Hottest Days Ever? Don’t Believe It" It looked into the claim by the global warming alarmist industry that July 3 and 4 were the two hottest days on Earth in 125,000 years. The article convinces me that the claim is pulled out of thin air and has no basis in fact. 

For one thing, there is no data from 125,000 years ago. That is just the start of the argument debunking the claim. The article says, "the notion of “average global temperature” is meaningless. Average global temperature is a concept invented by and for the global-warming hypothesis. It is more a political concept than a scientific one. The Earth and its atmosphere is large and diverse, and no place is meaningfully average.

Another problem, the article says, is that our temperature data are imprecise. "It has been estimated that 96% of U.S. temperature stations produce corrupted data. About 92% of them reportedly have a margin of error of a full degree Celsius, or nearly 2 degrees Fahrenheit."

I am not a global warning "denier", but I am skeptical of a lot of the claims of global warming alarmist. Unfounded and exaggerated claims like this one causes people to be global warming skeptics and to not accept the legitimate science of global warming. You can read the full article at this link
