Gina thinks climate change is making life too hard in Pennsylvania, because temperatures varied by 58 degrees in January.
So I tested out her theory, and plotted the difference between the highest and lowest Pennsylvania January temperatures going back to 1895.
This year was below average, with a spread of 72 degrees. Average is 75 degrees, and the largest spread was 104 degrees in January 1914. On January 14 1914, Ridgway was -24F, and on January 30 1914, Unioniontown was 80 degrees.
Imagine the hysteria if that happened now. People always believe that the climate is changing, and that the current weather is the most extreme. It is a defect in the thought process of many humans.
I spent last spring in Philadelphia. and it was cold just about all the time.
