Record Summer Night Temperatures?

You have to appreciate the timing on this one. Yesterday the Watts Up With That? website published this article titled “They only come out at night: “The Dark Side of Climate Change” and today (it doesn’t take long!) we get this article in USA Today titled “Summer sets records for nighttime temperatures.”

So, what’s so funny about it? Well, the people at “Watts Up With That?” must have predicted that articles about this would quickly show up and they got the quick-draw on the warmers.

The article shows you (literally with a couple of photos) how the warmers get these astoundingly warmer record nighttime temperatures. The warmers, as usual, are hollering about how this is more proof-positive we have global warming.

Just look at the photos to see what I am laughing about. You can easily see that they “conveniently” place the sensors around paved areas that retain heat long after the sun has gone down and thus raise the nighttime temperatures. How tricky indeed. They also like to place them near air conditioning exhausts and at the end of airport runways subjected to heat from jet engine exhausts day and night.  I even saw a photo of one in California mounted on  a fireplace chimney with the sensor above the flue.

So, today (they don’t wait long) we get the USA Today item touting record temperatures after dark per the study cited on Watts…..

This past summer didn’t set U.S. records for just daytime temperatures but also for nighttime ones, posing a danger to the elderly and low-income people who depend on overnight cooling, a new study reveals

Of course this has to be a danger, they have to keep that alarmism going yanno. They then go on to blather about how…..

The report, released Thursday, says nighttime temperatures are more sensitive to greenhouse gases than daytime ones because increases in cloud cover and atmospheric aerosols counteract some of the heat effect during the day.

Yes indeed folks! Has to be those greenhouse gases that are now amazingly (conveniently?) working their global warming voodoo at night more than in the day.  Perhaps they’re “vampire” gases that only come out at night? Or, perhaps it’s just hot pavement?

  1. Its great. Warmists keep giving us great messages to blog about. Keeps us all on our toes to stop the lies and the scam of of the century, climate change, uhh I meant ‘Global Climate Disruption’

    Are you saying all the stations have recently been moved from non-urban areas to urban areas?

    If you are not saying they have been moved, how can a NEW record be the result of the location? Either the location makes all measurements wrong or it makes none wrong. It doesn’t pick one day to make a record high but the day after to be normal.

    So if they haven’t moved, something else must have changed… something like AGW.

    There has been science fraud as long as there has been government grant-supported science. Google “Philip Felig” and the first entry should be “A fraud that shook the world” in the NY Times…back in 1981. These folks are not going to say “Sorry, our theory turned out not to be true…please find the enclosed check for the rest of your grant money and don’t worry about my salary for next year…the university is letting me mow the lawns and pick up trash.”

    I personally have worked outside at night for the past 12 years in Chicago and it was hot at night for 5 weeks, in fact this is the hottest summer I remember for a long while, of course I know that the sun is responsible for this phenomenon, but yeah it was hot.

    Just remember that the MSU satellite temperatures are near record highs that you can’t blame on urban heat influence, that this is the warmest decade of recorded history, even while we are in a long solar minima with few sunspots.
