Fort McMurray and Climate Change and “Scientists”

Yesterday I did a post pointing out that most of the really hot temperature records in Canada occurred 1936 to 1941.

Today I noticed that Jeff Masters at Wunderground  was claiming it never got this hot in Fort McMurray before in May.

I’ll just post a few quick facts.

  1. The monthly data for Fort McMurray only goes back to 1944. I doubt daily goes further back.
  2. The really hot years were the 1936 – 1941 years. So temperature records missed the 1936-1941 period.

Here are the ten warmest May’s (in terms of TX = Tmax) in For McMurray from 1944 on.

Year Month Tx Tn Tm
1986 5 34.8 -3 11.6
1944 5 32.8 -7.8 12
1961 5 32.8 -5.6 10
1971 5 32.8 -5.6 12.3
1995 5 32.8 -6.7 10.5
2003 5 31.3 -5.4 9.3
1972 5 31.1 -6.7 12
1987 5 30.8 -6.9 11.1
1948 5 30.6 -4.4 11.1
1980 5 30.6 -3.8 11.2
