WITH the mercury topping 38C in Sydney over the weekend (hottest in 78 years), the usual climate ambulance chasers will be sharpening the lead and filling ink wells to inscribe
“climate change” “global warming” on their “extreme weather” report cards, feeling morally-bound to fashionably link mankind’s activities to the follies of nature.
HOWEVER, heatwaves and fires in Sydney during autumn months are not uncommon, even when CO2 was at ‘safe’ levels…
(2018 atmospheric CO2 levels are currently at ~400 ppm)

1899 CO2 = 295 ppm
HEAT WAVE IN SYDNEY.
A heat wave reaced Sydney to-day, causing the thermometers to register 90.4deg. in the shade. This heat, though much less than was recently recorded in the southern capitals, was far more enervating, owing to the huge percentage of moisture in the atmosphere. Mr. Russell says that only a dozen times in the history of the colony has a higher March temperature been recorded in Sydney, and if the lateness of the month is taken into account, to-day’s heat will go very close to constituting a record. In the evening a cool change set in from the south.
1915 CO2 = 301 ppm
HEAT WAVE CIRCLES SYDNEY.
This month has so far proved the hottest March experienced in Sydney. To-day the thermometer mounted to 100.7 [38C] decrees in the city. In the Western suburbs higher readings were recorded. Parramatta registered 104 [40C] degrees. It was very dry and hot with nil exceptionally low percentage of humidity. Much dust was carried by the blustering westerly and north-westerly wind. The forecast for to-morrow is more hot weather with prospects of the cool change, which is so much desired. It is oppressively hot in the city to-night. Inland the weather is hot and dry. A temperature of 105 [40.5C] decrees was reported from Bourke, and 106 [41C] from Jerry’s Plain.
This month has so far proved the hottest March experienced in Sydney. To-day was a decided scorcher. The thermometer went to 100.7 degrees [38C] in the city, while in the western suburbs higher readings still were recorded. Parramatta had 104 degrees [40C]. It was a very dry heat, with an exceptionally low percentage of humidity. Much dust was carried by blistering westerly and north-westerly winds. A change had been promised for to-day, but the Weather Bureau officials say this change has unexpectedly been held up at about Moruya. For to-morrow the forecast is more hot winds with prospects of a cool change, which is so much desired in Sydney. It was oppressively hot in the city tonight. Inland too the weather is hot and dry. A temperature of 105 degrees [40.5] is reported from Bourke and 106 degrees [41C] from Jerry’s Plains.
To-day’s exceedingly hot weather was accompanied by a record number of fires in the surroundings of Sydney.
11 March 1926
1926 CO2 = 306 ppm
At 1.30 p.m. to-day the thermometer registered 100 degrees [38C] in the shade in Sydney.

1940 CO2 = 311 ppm
WORST ON RECORD
HEAT WAVE IN SYDNEY
During March Sydney experienced the worst heat wave on record, not so much for the Intensity of the heat, but for the duration of the high readings. During the 10 days until yesterday the ‘maximum temperature in Sydney was over 80deg. The maximum on Saturday was 85deg. and to-day 87.2deg [30.5]. Water restrictions will be imposed next week unless rain falls. Sydney has had no substantial falls for 12 months.
2 MARCH 1951
1951 CO2 = 311 ppm
AUTUMN HERE BUT HEAT WAVE IN THE STATE
Though Autumn is now officially here, the northern half of the State is experiencing a heat-waye. A bushfire is ravaging the Cobar area. The highest temperature in the State yesterday was at Wilcannia (111degrees) [44C], but several other towns were over the 100 [38C] including Cobar 110 , Bourke 109 , Hillston 105 [40.4], and Broken Hill 101 .
Thousands of Sydney people flocked to the beaches seeking relief from the muggy heat last night, but they were disappointed. They found that the water temperature
was one degree higher than that on the beach.
Police and volunteers : early this morning were fighting a bushfire which was racing over grasslands toward the far western town of Hermidale. . .

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT
By Paul Homewood
Booker skewers Monbiot in his column today:
Although The Guardian’s George Monbiot waxes famously excitable over anything he can blame on global warming, he got carried away even more than usual last week. As Britain suffered from blizzards and a deep freeze, he noted a recent spike in temperatures in the Arctic, taking them up to 63F (35C) above average. “This is more than just a temperature anomaly,” he tweeted, “it is an off-the-scale event. Why is the Arctic meltdown not headline news in every paper?”
It did not take long for our expert friend Paul Homewood, on his blog Notalotofpeopleknowthat, to track down one answer to that question. He published a graph and charts from the Danish Meteorological Institute showing a similar temperature spike in 1976 which also brought March snow to Britain.
Far from being “crazy”, “weird” and “unprecedented”, as is claimed by various scientists…

“As far as I’m concerned, all this talk about human-caused global warming is sheer nonsense, if not downright fraud. The record shows that both periods of warmth – and periods of cold – hit our planet with almost consistent regularity.” – Robert W. Felix

via Ice Age Now :
There is absolutely nothing unusual about today’s so-called global warming (or “climate change”).
Look at how many periods of warmth our planet has enjoyed during the past 10,000 years alone.
Civilizations flourished during those warm periods, and collapsed when they ended.
Did humans cause the Minoan warm period of of about 3,300 years ago?
Did humans cause the Roman warm period of about 2,100 years ago?
Did humans cause the Medieval warm period of about 1,000 years ago?
What about all of those other warm periods? Should we blame Fred Flintstone, perhaps?
Now look at where we are today (at the far right side of the graph).
If the downward trend in temperature of the past 3,300 years continues, we could be in a heap of trouble. While our leaders keep on wringing their collective hands over global warming, we could be blindsided by an ice age.
As far as I’m concerned, all this talk about human-caused global warming is sheer nonsense, if not downright fraud. The record shows that both periods of warmth – and periods of cold – hit our planet with almost consistent regularity.
The above chart is based on data from GISP2 (Greenland Ice Sheet Project 2). GISP2 drilled cores into the Greenland ice more than 3000 meters (almost 2 miles) deep, allowing scientists to study climate variability for the past 125,000 years.

Black Thursday, February 6th. 1851, as depicted by William Strutt in 1864
The Black Thursday bushfires were a devastating series of fires that swept through Victoria on February 6, 1851. They are considered the largest Australian bushfires in a populous region in recorded history, with approximately 5 million hectares, or a quarter of Victoria, being burnt. Twelve lives were lost, along with one million sheep and thousands of cattle.
The year preceding the fires was exceptionally hot and dry and this trend continued into the summer of 1851. On Black Thursday, a northerly wind set in early and the temperature in Melbourne was reported to have peaked at 47.2 degrees C (117 degrees F) at 11:00am.
“The temperature became torrid, and on the morning of the 6th of February 1851, the air which blew down from the north resembled the breath of a furnace. A fierce wind arose, gathering strength and velocity from hour to hour, until about noon it blew with the violence of a tornado. By some inexplicable means it wrapped the whole country in a sheet of flame — fierce, awful, and irresistible.” (Wikipedia / Climatism bolds).
In 1851, carbon dioxide levels were around 285 ppm. Today, carbon
dioxide “pollution” levels are around 400 ppm.
CLIMATE change alarmists, like Tim Flannery and the ABC, claim Australian bush fires are unprecedented and becoming more extreme, thanks to human carbon
dioxide “pollution” emissions.
THEY tell you this because the ultimate prize of the eco-activist is the control of carbon dioxide (energy). Virtually every human activity, including breathing, releases carbon dioxide. Consequently, greenhouse gases have become weaponised through the fear of “catastrophic climate change” in the “sustainability” (sic) effort to control all aspects of your life.

“THAT earth’s climate changes, and even now maybe changing quite rapidly, is widely recognized. The questions facing worried experts: are we warming the atmosphere of our planet irreversibly with our industry, automobiles, and land clearing practices? What sort of weather will our children and our grandchildren know? On the answers may rest the fate of nations and millions of people.”
SOUND like the all too familiar talking points of a circa 2017 warming alarmist?
NOT quite! The (edited) paragraph was from 1976, printed in NatGeo during the perceived man-made “global cooling” apocalypse.
SAME fears, different scare!

Watts Up With That?
Guest essay by Doug Ferguson
Having moved from Minnesota to Alaska this past summer, we have been making the rounds of thrift shops, stores and other venues to restock our home with things we left behind to reduce our moving costs.
Before heading out to one of our recent forays, I caught up on the news on the well known climate blog, “Watts Up With That” and read the 10/39/17 article, How Google and MSM Use “Fact Checkers” to Flood Us with Fake Claims by Leo Goldstein. You should read it. The link is here
The main example was Time magazine, but it made me think of another publication that has more subtly switched gears over the past 40 years or so to maintain the sense of impending climate doom. This is the venerable National Geographic, which currently is in full global warming alarm mode.
Therefore it was with great…

“And we can see that Irma is not in the same league as the others.”
MORE sane and measured ‘scientific’ analysis from Paul Homewood. Refreshing, amongst the diatribe of alarmist speculation and theorising from the usual climate ambulance chasing suspects.
NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT
By Paul Homewood
There seems to be a lot of disinformation around about Irma being the “most powerful Atlantic Ocean storm in recorded history” with sustained winds of 185 mph, such as the Telegraph above. I also heard the same comment on ITV News yesterday.
As I pointed out yesterday:
Four other storms have had winds as strong in the overall Atlantic region but they were in the Caribbean Sea or the Gulf of Mexico, which are usually home to warmer waters that fuel cyclones.
Hurricane Allen hit 190 mph in 1980, while 2005’s Wilma, 1988’s Gilbert and a 1935 great Florida Key storm all had 185 mph winds.
In other words, there have now been four hurricanes as strong or stronger since 1980, about one every decade, and certainly nothing like the “unprecedented” impression left by the headlines.
And as we know, prior to Allen in 1980, we…
