It WAS NOT the Hottest July in the History of the USA

We are being bombarded by stories like this:
I am not sufficiently versed in this particular method of measuring earth's temperature that I can comment. 

What I can say is that what I wrote on this blog, twice, during July has been confirmed. It was not the hottest July in our nation. That is based on NOAA's official National Climate Reference Network, which was installed in 2005 to prove how fast the USA is warming. So far, the data doesn't support that hypothesis. Below is the data for the months of July from 2005 to 2023. 

Several Julys, including last year's, were hotter. In fact, if you go up and look at the USA on the Wall Street Journal's graphic, you see a large stripe of blue (cooler than average) across the USA.
