A new climate report for the USA was published along wit the usual shenanigans by the NY Times.
What this map shows is highly damaging to the global warming alarmism industry. It proves that, regardless of average temperature trends, temperatures at the top end of the scale are not increasing. Note that this applies even in the case of California, until recently the golden child of warmists.
We may be seeing milder winters and warmer nights, but, as far as the US is concerned, we are certainly not seeing hotter days.
July USA – 1936, 1934 and 1901 (tied with 2012) Are Still the Hottest (Maximum) in USA.
2017 is 15th. 2017 is tied for 14th.
Clarification: I’m using Maximum Temperature. Not Average.
Comparing May 1934 to May 2017 by Division and Rank where 123 it hottest and 1 is coldest.
Every dark brown are with 123 in it was a record high in 1934
According to the NOAA May 2017 Tmax was ranked 70th out of 123 May’s (123 = warmest , 1 = coldest) .

The top 2 were 1934 and 1936. 1934 was 6.29F above the mean.
February 2017 was 2nd warmest Tmax. 1954 is still the record holder.
