Is Christmas Getting Too Warm?

Member Group : CO2 Coalition

Usually at this time of year, we can expect to see the compliant news media reporting on alarming Christmas temperature increases. Often, it is reported that recent Christmases or New Years were the warmest in hundreds or thousands of years.

In order to arm you with the facts concerning Christmas temperatures, I asked our Science and Research Associate, Byron Soepyan, to look into what the data tell us about this. He accessed the U.S. Historical Climatology Network (USHCN) and looked at maximum temperatures for the Lower 48 states in the U.S. and compared that to atmospheric CO2 levels.

What we found surprised us. The maximum temperatures on this date vary quite widely, but there is no discernible trend either increasing or decreasing (right click on image to download the jpg).

Sleep well… there is no Christmas Climate Crisis.
