Extreme Weather Alert: Canada February 1936

The AGW cult likes to talk about “extreme weather” as if that is a new thing and all was nice and calm in the past before that evil CO2 came along. What a load of bull.

Inspired by my own post about 1930 temperatures  in Canada and Steven Goddards post about “extreme weather” in Montana in 1936,  I thought I should take a quick look at 1936.

Imagine you are in the middle of the worst 10 year heatwave ever in North America — the dust bowl — and along comes February 1936. The data in the graph below are monthly averages based on the 1971-2000 normals Canada uses.

The black dot in the top left hand corner is about 5C of difference above or below the normal for that month.

Of the 184 stations, 3 were above 0. 81 were more than -10C colder than normal. Animated gif of whole year at bottom. Click for bigger.
