The New York Times claims that the number of 90 degree days at Mt. Vernon Illinois has increased from thirty days per year in 1960 to forty-one days per year now.
This claim is completely fraudulent. According to NOAA temperature data, the number of 90 degree days at Mt. Vernon has actually declined from thirty-two days per year in 1960 to sixteen days per year now.
Since the 1930’s, the number of ninety degree days is down more than seventy-five percent.
The New York Times projects a large increase in the number of ninety degree days as CO2 increases, when in fact the trend shows the exact opposite.
The next graph overlays the actual data from NOAA on the New York Times graph. Every thing about the New York Times graph is fraudulent. They show a sharply decreasing trend as a sharply increasing trend, they show the current data incorrectly, and they hide the hot years before 1960.
On this date in 1953, there were 100 degree temperatures from California to New England. Palestine, Illinois was 107 degrees – eighteen degrees warmer than today’s forecast.
