The debate on Climate Change   General Confusion

Here's the quote from reuters;

The hottest air temperature recorded anywhere on the planet in at least a century, and possibly ever, 

It took me all of 30 seconds to find that the record was not 130 degrees but 134 degrees in 1913. You're saying we shouldn't expect a good journalist to be able to do the same? "and possibly ever"?

come.... on.... man.....

Bob, it's 2020. The hottest day before that was 107 years ago.

Last I checked, that's "at least a century".

"Possibly ever" is perfectly reasonable, as temperature gauges were not as precise 107 years ago - though it is definitely wrong, as the earth was once nothing but molten rock in a coalescing solar system.

If everyone that does sloppy, or dishonest, work has people like you making excuses for them can we reasonably expect those results to change?

For decades women in hollywood seemed to suffer men taking advantage of them sexually. Was that because they spoke out, immediately and loudly, about it when it happened, or, because they made excuses for it?

Bob... I gave you a mathematically correct reply to your claim that 107 years is less than a century.

Be a man and accept you made a mistake.

Nice random deflection.

I have had it with you. You are clearly insane and/or simply evil. You're dishonest, and a perfect example of what liberalism can do to people if they allow it. HERE WAS MY RESPONSE TO THAT CATCH;

You want to recheck your math there?

DARN! I hate it when I do dumb stuff like that!

My wife, however, loves it!

Wrong post.

That was a completely different miscalculation.

134 degrees Death Valley famously holds the record for the hottest temperature ever recorded on Earth, which is 134 degrees. This record was set on July 10, 1913.

Tell me, was there more, or much less, co2 in the atmosphere 207 years ago?

Please, find a news source that believes more in journalism than ideology!

This was the other mathematical mistake you admitted to.

You used three posts to support your claim that I implied that 107 years was less than a century.

Of course, that claim is an absolute lie, but, that is your style. All you have to offer this forum in argument are lies, and deflections.

That, having been said, ends it all...................

Very well, Bob.

Explain to me exactly why you took issue with the statement that the recent high temperature recorded in Death Valley was the highest in a century.
