95 Year Weather Record Falls in PG

Wednesday, July 8, 2015 @ 10:16 AM

Prince George, B.C. – Yes, yesterday was hot.

So hot in fact, it broke a 95 year weather record in Prince George.

“Yes we broke a record,” says Andre Besson, meteorologist with Environment Canada. “We reached 32.4 degrees and the previous record was 32.2 back in 1920.”hightemps

He says another record may fall today.

“Actually yes, it’s quite possible today we’ll break another record,” says Besson. “We do have a high of 33 degrees in the forecast and the record for today is 33.9.”

He expects a reprieve from the heat wave soon though.

“The next few days we should see a gradual cooling as we have a change in weather conditions in store for the weekend.”

Besson says that will likely include increasing cloudiness and a chance of showers starting Friday with highs in the 20’s and a chance lightning strikes throughout the Interior.


ITS so blinkin hot out there today……it would melt the nutzzzz off a steel bridge.

Cue the climate change deniers . All the science isn’t in on gravity either but you can measure climate change by degrees . I wonder if it’s a waste of time and money , to replant the millions of acres of crown land that is going up in smoke with the species of trees . This is why we need science as opposed to ideology . Sask is already over a million acres of trees gone .

Same species of trees .

So we were .2 degrees hotter yesterday than the same day in 1920, your point is? The last story where records were beat elsewhere in the province we were .5 degrees less than the same day June 27th, 1938 and did not break any records. Quesnel in 1896 was 34 degrees on June 27th… We can measure it by degrees for sure…

The cogent question that needs to be asked here is; when a weather record falls, why does it always have to be a warm weather record, why not a cold weather record?

Do the research, how many warm weather records have been broken compared to cold weather records, over the last decade?

the oddities like polar vortex are caused by geo-engineering aka stratosphere aerosolizing

if they weren’t doing it at all, probably be difficult to grow food or go outside anywhere and then you’d have things happen like in the bible lol

Heres a couple for ya sage.



You have never commented on the medieval, Roman warm periods, or about the Holocene maximum or even the Eemian period where temperatures where much warmer than now? funny that.

Here is an interesting read for you wind farm proponents,


My point is . We are seeing scrubs replacing grass land in the arctic . The trees can’t handle mild winters because the bugs that eat them thrive in warm winters and hot summers . The pines need to move north and they need replacing but by what . And . I’d rather see some one with a background in botany (plant life science ) running the ministry of forests . Forestry needs hundred ( s) year planning .

Just wondering. Did the folks in 1920 yell climate change, too?

Ataloss you really have to learn some history of the earth.

“Global climate change has already had observable effects on the environment. Glaciers have shrunk, ice on rivers and lakes is breaking up earlier, plant and animal ranges have shifted and trees are flowering sooner.

Effects that scientists had predicted in the past would result from global climate change are now occurring: loss of sea ice, accelerated sea level rise and longer, more intense heat waves.”

For those of you who would like to know more about the future effects global warming will have on us and our planet please go to this linked website:

We can stop this, the first step is to vote in a government that acknowledges climate change exists, and is willing to lead this country forward with concrete steps and measures that will ween us off fossil fuels and increase our use of alternative energy sources.

Not often (if ever) do I agree with People #1 but climate change is real and it’s killing us.

The climate in this area has changed since I was a little grasshopper, it’s still changing. It’s nothing new and it certainly isn’t anything to get in to a frazzle about. Things happen. The milder winders are nice, haven’t worn long johns in years. So them what is concerned about climate change, go worry yourselves somewhere else.

So you want to stop climate change. Sage you never answer my questions. Did you ever hear of the little ice age? It has warmed about .8 degree since then but temperatures are not yet increased to what they were before the LIA. Most glacier melt happened before man could have had an affect. For the last 7000 years temperatures are trended down.

I thought I read somewhere that the last decade (2000-2009) was the warmest in recorded history.

Here is a very good chart that shows how skeptics view global warming verse how realists view global warming. This has even presented on this site recently, with a skeptic asking why global warming has stopped “over the last 15 years”.

Watch the chart changes carefully and you will see the skeptics use short 10 to 15 years comarisons as proof there is no global warming, whereas intelligent realists view the larger picture and look at the longer upward trend in global termperatures.

It is simply amazing how many ways deniers can decieve themselves of the facts and the truth about global warming. Not to worry, now that we have debunked the deniers assertions about the last 10 years not warming, they will invent another approach, funded and distributed of course by the fossil fuel industry. They can’t have their products linked to causing global warming / climate change, now can they?

Weird. I thought I actually sided with Peeps and yet I still feel shot full of holes because I only used the first decade of this century as an example.

Not at all DI you are pretty much spot on, 10 out of the last 12 years have been the warmest in recorded history.

Sage you must be one of the only ones to read alarmist blog.

Hey you haven’t answered my questions yet?

Recorded history, not warmer than the medieval or Roman warm periods.

” At least engineers have to prove their ideas work. The widgets and cell phones and cars and jets and bridges they build either work or they don’t.

In climate science, whichever side is favored by politicians and journalism graduates is the side that wins.

And what about those 97% of scientists who agree? Well, what they all agree on is that if their government climate funding goes away, their careers will end”.


So funny how both the cons and the oil companies have so many sycophanticly useful idiots making excuses for both . Even when provided proof to the contrary . Even the oil companies have known for years that global warming is real and that their business is exasperating it . The news is out there.

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse has said that the oil companies have known for at least 34 years and may have broken federal racketeering laws . Check it out Sophic . It’s not much of a shocker for us . It should be a wake up call for the fossil supporters . They should be ashamed of repeating lies . Even though they can’t tell the difference . It arrived in my green huff post Twitter feed . If you’re looking for it .
