    Seems the current “climate change” extreme heats in Europe are nothing new. They’ve been around before.

    To see a whole lot more vintage photos, go to Vintage photos show Londoners in St James’ Park and cooling-off at lidos | Daily Mail Online

    And there seems to have been another in 1976

    The 1912 U.S. cold wave resulted in 150 million dollars in crop losses. The Sun is a quirky bitch.

    Heat wave in England in 1937 and Nazis in Germany?

    Coincidence? I think not.

    I grew up listening to the stories of the "Winter of 36" told by my father... Not once did the man ever mention whose fault it was... What he did say was it was "Damn Cold"...

    The 1936 North American cold wave ranks among the most intense cold waves in the recorded history of North America. The Midwestern United States and the Canadian Prairies were hit the hardest. Only the Southwestern United States and California largely escaped its effects.

    February 1936 was the coldest February on record in the contiguous U.S., narrowly eclipsing February 1899.[1] It also was the coldest month ever in Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota.

    The meteorological winter (December through February) of 1935/36 was the coldest on record for Iowa,[2] Minnesota,[3] North Dakota,[4] and South Dakota.[5] This winter was much colder than the immediately preceding winters. 1930 through 1934 had very mild winters in the U.S. 1930/31 was warm in the western north central states; 1931/32 in the mid- and south-Atlantic states, the eastern north central states, and the eastern south central states; 1932/33 in New England; and, 1933/34 in the mountain and Pacific states.[6] In the northern plains, the Februaries of 1925, 1926, 1927, 1930, 1931, and 1935 are among the 25 warmest Februaries between 1895 and 2017, although 1929 had the third-coldest February of all-time.[7]

    Despite a mild March over most areas east of the Rocky Mountains, the six months from October 1935 to March 1936 were the fifth-coldest on record over the contiguous U.S.[8]

    The difference being these were short periods of intense heat. What's happening now is much longer periods of heat. The UK has been bone dry for months now, and temperatures on a daily basis at what would before have been just a few days.

    During the 1970's the trend among "climate scientists" was to predict a coming Ice Age. Time and Newsweek stories confirmed speculation about a "cooling world". The dirty little secret is that today's "climate scientists" are funded by the government and a hundred other U.S. (and anti U.S.) networks to produce "evidence" of man made global warming and as long as he grants keep coming in, the "scientists" will fudge data and fake science to keep their fat asses in the latest Lexus and/or extorting money from Uncle Sam to fund pet projects related to alleged "green energy" which sometimes turns out to be an international money laundering scheme.

    Some will. That doesn't mean all people are fudging data, it doesn't mean the world isn't getting warmer when in reality, based on the last 400,000 years, we should be getting cooler.

    In 76 the socialist government appointed a Minister for Rain and the heavens opened.

    Drought and the minister for rain

    Of course these days our water is now owned by overseas governments who stash away large piles of cash whilst failing to address pipe repairs.

    It was pouring with rain last time I looked on the TeeVee.

    The jet stream is too far north this year, that's all.
