Shock news : Australia has always had heatwaves

We’ve got to ride this global warming issue.
Even if the theory of global warming is wrong,
we will be doing the right thing in terms of
economic and environmental policy.

– Timothy Wirth,
President of the UN Foundation

This planet is on course for a catastrophe.
The existence of Life itself is at stake

Climate Council

With the 2014 Australian summer afoot, the usual band of climate criminals have been jumping on the ‘Global’ warming fear-train, drumming up support for their ailing global warming climate change cause. A cause which mother nature has severely battered in recent months and indeed over the past 16 years.

Tim Flannery’s privately formed “Climate Council” has led the alarmist charge, spewing out the usual catastrophic weather reports, blaming evil human carbon dioxide pollution emissions on any summer induced bush-fire, hot day or heat-wave that unseasonably rolls through Australia in summer.

Global warming sympathetic media outlets, in particular the ABC, regularly cite Flannery’s dire prognostications, whilst omitting valuable climate history. Historical information which tells us that Australian heatwaves are far from ‘unprecedented’. In fact, newspaper reports dating back to the late 1800’s depict heatwaves of at least equal intensity as present day systems. The only difference being, the blistering Australian heatwaves of the 1800’s existed when CO2 was at 280PPM and not today’s 398PPM.

Australian heatwaves are nothing new

No doubt we will hear how the current heatwaves in Australia are “unprecedented” and evidence of dangerous man-made global warming.

They are neither “global” nor “unprecedented”.

In the great heatwave of 1896, with nearly 200 deaths, the temperature at Bourke did not fall below 45.6 degC for six weeks, and the maximum was 53.3 degC. Bushfires raged throughout NSW and 66 people perished in the heat.

In 1897, Perth had an 18 day heatwave with a record of 43.3 degC. Other heatwaves were reported at Winton, 1891, Melbourne 1892, Boulia 1901, Sydney 1903, Perth 1906 and so on.

Why don’t we hear of these severe heatwaves from the past? Simple – the government Bureau of Meteorology conveniently ignores all temperature records before 1910.

However, that does not excuse our media for neglecting the written records such as these preserved in newspapers of the past.

Could it be that both the BOM and some of the media are still trying to preserve the ailing global warming scare?

January, 1858 Adelaide Heatwave Was 11 Degrees Warmer Than The 2014 Mann-Made Heatwave

Posted on January 18, 2014

In January, 1858 Adelaide had nine consecutive days over 100F, topping out at 116.3.

21 Jan 1905 – SPELLS OF EXTREME HEAT.

The graph below compares that to the “record heatwave” during the last nine days in Adelaide. The 1858 heatwave averaged 11 degrees warmer, with every day of the heatwave hotter than the corresponding day this year.  CO2 was 280 PPM at the time.

Fewer heatwaves for 9 million Australians in Sydney, Darwin, Hobart, Melbourne –”thank CO2″!

Let’s play the Heatwaves PR game. If CO2 had an effect we’d see a significant increase in the rate of global warming over the decades since WWII, the models would work, and climate scientists would be able to predict our climate. Since none of that is true, those with a political agenda have to clutch at noisy but marketable extremes instead. Apparently even a half-true, noisy, non-causal link is good enough for post-modern scientists. Read on…
