Experts : Cherry Blossom Peak Bloom Over

Climate experts say Washington DC cherry trees are blooming earlier due to “global warming” and predicted that peak bloom this year would be March 17-20.

It is March 22, and Washington DC looks like mid-winter. Perhaps all of the white stuff on the ground is fallen cherry blossom petals?

But not to worry!  Experts have updated their failed forecast to March 27.

Cherry blossom bloom dates have been trending later in DC, not earlier. But climate experts cling to their illusion that CO2 controls the climate and are thus blinded to reality.

Climate is climate, and climate science is nonsense, and never the twain shall meet. Experts believe cherry trees are going to start blooming in January, in spite of the fact that the concept is ridiculous and there is no evidence to back it up.

March temperatures in the DC area show no long term trend, but recent years have been generally cold.

It wasn’t always cold in DC during March though – 1945 and 1946 had very early blooms.

Prior to 1950, March 22 was frequently a warm day in the US, with 1907 and 1910 being the warmest. During those years, 60% of US stations were over 70F on March 22.

There was a sharp drop off in the frequency of March 22 eighty degree weather after 1940.

On March 22, 1907 much  of the southeastern US was over 90 degrees, and 80 degree temperatures were widespread as far north as New York.

The belief that CO2 controls temperature is the most embarrassing and mindless mass superstition of the modern age.
