An analysis of the prevalence of heat waves in the United States
between 1948 and 2015
There has been a "strong increase" in the prevalence of heat waves in
the US between the mid-1970s and 2015, a new study finds. Analysis of
observed data show that increases in heatwave frequency are similar
for both daytime and nighttime, but largest in summer. Looking at
different regions, the findings suggest the biggest heatwave increases
have occurred in the west and southwest, while the Pacific Coast was
most likely to experience daytime and nighttime heatwaves
simultaneously. -- Journal of Applied Meteorology and Climatology

It's understood that with "Average" there's
going to be numbers above and below that
number, often times a lot higher and lower.

...and then when you cherry pick the
"Average" for the 1980s, it's a given that
most and probably even all the years are
either higher or lower than "Average." It's
just when you "Average" them out you get
something in the middle...

So, these nimrods cherry picked the 1980s,
pretended God engraved a commandment somewhere
stating that 1980s temperatures are where we're
supposed to be, and even then not any actual
temperatures -- which were all higher or lower --
but an "Average."

Wow. This shit actually fools people?
