Adelaide December 1932 : Seven Consecutive Days Over 40 Degrees

australia-hottest-days.jpg

Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology, trumpeted by the global warming alarmist ABC, are claiming Adelaide’s projected 4 day heatwave, will break a record.

Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Matt Collopy said that “four days greater than a record of 40C in Adelaide has never happened in December since records began in 1887”.

However in 1932, Adelaide endured 7 consecutive days with the mercury rising beyond 100F (104F = 40C).

HEAT, WAVE.

ABNORMAL CONDITIONS IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA.

ADELAIDE, Dec. 31. — Today was the seventh consecutive day in which the temperature went over the century. The maximum today was 103.4 degrees (40 degrees C). Seven days with the thermometer over 100 degrees is easily a record for December but is two days short of the record for months other than December; for in January ,1858, and again in February and March, 1872, there were nine days in succession in which the glass recorded the century. The “weather man” said to-day that he expected the conditions to get worse before they got better.

EPA Says That The Worst Heat Waves Occurred in The 1930s

Real Science

According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, the 1930s had (by far) the worst heatwaves in US history.

Heat waves occurred with high frequency in the 1930s, and these remain the most severe heat waves in the U.S. historical record  (see Figure 1)

MELBOURNE, January 13, 1905

The heat wave in which Melbourne has sweltered for a week is not yet broken. On Monday the Observatory registered a maximum of l04.5deg. in the shade; on Tuesday 80.9; Wednesday 108.5; Thursday 105.6; and to-day 108.5 [42°C]. The city has been, so thoroughly baked that the very earth and buildings seemed to exude heat to-day, and people, especially those of advanced years and young children, felt the severe strain placed upon their powers of physical endurance. The glare of the sun about midday was almost painful, and tho gripmen employed on the tramways found the lever so hot that it was necessary to protect their hands.

During the afternoon the sky became clouded, and the heat of the sun became less intense, but there was no relief in the shade, and even after sundown, the heat was most oppressive. The thermometer at the Observatory showed at 9 o’clock this morning 98.7 [37°C] in the shade, and 141 [60°C] the sun. An hour later 101 in the shade, and 153 in the sun were recorded, and by 12 o’clock the readings had advanced to 106 in the Shade and 161 [71°C] in the sun. The shade readings at half-past 1 stood at 108.2 [42°C], and at 3 o’clock at 103.5, which was the highest for the day.

The temperature fell very, slowly. The shade reading at 6 o’clock was 101.5, and at 7 o’clock 90.8.

The Government Astronomer issued a forecast to-night that a cool change is approaching, which will give relief in the southern districts, but that there is no present indication of relief for the exhausted settlers inland, where the temperatures during the week ranged to 118 deg [48°C] in the shade.

Claim : Global Warming Deaths To Quadruple By 2050

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.

President of the UN Foundation

The success of Australia’s Carbon Tax has meant that global temperatures have not risen over the past 15 years despite Australia’s evil CO² emissions continuing to rise over the same period 1998-2011.

Note China’s CO² emissions have increased by 300% over the same period 1998-2011. However, their talk of an emissions trading pilot scheme has also played a crucial role in halting the rise of atmospheric temps over the past 15 years.

Despite soaring evil-CO² emissions, there has been no warming trend in Australian summers since satellite (UAH) records began.

Even though global temperatures have not risen over the past 15 years and there has been no warming trend in Australian summers since (UAH) satellite records began, we must not be complacent. We must continue to listen to emperor Rudd’s Government and Deputy Anthony Albanese, who warn us that by 2050 evil CO² related Global Warming (aka Climate Change) heat-related deaths will quadruple.

By 2050 ‘No child or pensioner will die of a heat-related illness’ and we will thank emperor Rudd’s Labor government for linking Australia’s carbon tax and energy prices to the European emissions trading scheme (ETS) – cutting the world’s temp even further and eliminating Australia’s “Angry Summers” forever.

Our grandkids future is more important than being able to afford electricity bills today. Our ‘great’ grandkids future is more important than pensioners being able to afford to use Air Conditioning during “The Angry Summer” or heating in winter.

We must not be concerned green central planning is killing Australia’s international competitiveness, destroying local manufacturing jobs, curtailing investment and sending jobs and industry off-shore to access cheaper, reliable and more efficient energy sources in China, India and elsewhere…

VOTE1 Kevin Rudd & Labor to STOP heat related deaths by 2050 !!

BACK to reality!

Albanese’s heat-related death forecast is classic fear-mongering and global warming alarmist propaganda BS.

Statistics and historical evidence show cold related deaths far outweigh those caused by heat by more than double. However if your government makes electricity unaffordable through draconian climate policy; Carbon Taxers, ETS air trading and heavily subsidised green schemes, you might expect heat related deaths to increase as societies most vulnerable are unable to afford air-conditioning. Heat related deaths would certainly rise if AC is regulated or banned altogether as recommended by UN bureaucrats and those members of the comfortable western climate change elite brigade.

The Facts on HEAT versus COLD related deaths:

The Deadliest U.S. Natural Hazard: Extreme Cold

Posted on December 18, 2008 by 

https://i0.wp.com/blog.kievukraine.info/uploaded_images/3195-734559.jpg

There’s a new essay from Indur Goklany in response to a recent Reuters news article.

Yesterday Reuters reported on a study which claimed that heat is the deadliest form of natural hazard for the United States. However, this result is based on questionable data.  The study used results for mortality from extreme heat and cold that can be traced to the National Climatic Data Center. But these data are substantially different from mortality data from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) based on the Compressed Mortality File for the United States. The latter uses death certificate records, which provide the cause of each recorded death (based on medical opinion). It is reasonable to believe that regarding the cause of death, particularly for extreme cold and heat, medical opinion as captured in death certificate records is more reliable than determinations made by the meteorologists in the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s NCDC (even if they have Ph.Ds.).

The essay draws on data from the CDC database of mortality in the USA. See this table:

Combining data from the CDC database for extreme cold and extreme heat, and various arms of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration for floods, lightning, hurricanes, and tornadoes, Goklany has shown that extreme cold, rather than heat, is the deadliest form of extreme weather event. In fact, from 1979-2002, extreme cold was responsible for 53 percent of deaths due to all these categories of extreme weather, while extreme heat contributes slightly more than half that (28%).  For more, see The Deadliest U.S. Natural Hazard: Extreme Cold.

Of course we all know that the human race has historically done better during warm periods. While we’ve seen a sloght warming in the last century, we’ve also seen a worldwide improvement in the human condition.

Warm – what’s not to like?

Also this:
In an article entitled, “The impact of global warming on health and mortality,” published in the Southern Medical Journal in 2004, W.R. Keatinge and G.C. Donaldson of Queen Mary’s School of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of London note:

“Cold-related deaths are far more numerous than heat-related deaths in the United States, Europe, and almost all countries outside the tropics, and almost all of them are due to common illnesses that are increased by cold.”

“From 1979 to 1997, extreme cold killed roughly twice as many Americans as heat waves, according to Indur Goklany of the U.S. Department of the Interior,” Singer and Avery write. “Cold spells, in other words, are twice as dangerous to our health as hot weather.”

THE CHANGING OF THE GOAL POSTS:

During the 1970’s the Global Cooling scare was to bring drought and starvation:

ScreenHunter_51 Jul. 13 06.31

MAJOR world climate changes were under way that would cause economic and political upheavals “almost beyond comprehension”, an internal report of the Central Intelligence Agency has warned the US Government.

“The new climatic era brings a promise of famine and starvation to many areas of the world”, the report warns.

Its basic premise is that the world’s climate is cooling and will revert to conditions prevalent between 1600 and 1850 — when the earth’s population was less than 1,000 million and its rural, pre-industrial era civilisations were largely capable of feeding themselves.

A return to cooler temperatures in today’s fragile, . interdependent global economic structure would mean that India, China and the Soviet Union’ — among other northern hemisphere nations — will be hard pressed to feed their populations.

The report notes that’ “the change of climate is cooling some significant agricultural areas and causing drought in others. If, for example, there, is a northern hemisphere drop of one degree centigrade, it would mean that India will have a major drought every four years and can only support three-fourths of her present population”.

“The world reserve would have to supply 30 to 50 million metric tons of grain each year to prevent the death of 150 million Indians”, the re port said.

“China, with a major famine every five years, would require a supply of 50 million metric tons of grain. The Soviet Union would lose Kazakhstan for grain production, thereby showing a yearly loss of 48 million metric tons of grain.

“Canada, a .major exporter, would lose over 50 per cent of its production capability and 75 per cent of its exporting capabilities. Northern Europe will “lose 25 to 30 per cent of its present production capability while the Common Market countries would zero their exports”.

The report, which was concerned with possible political and economic threats the United States could expect from such drastic events, said the starvation and famine would lead to social unrest and global migration of populations.

UPDATE

Reader Bill confirms the Government’s alarmist projections:

Want to read something really interesting? Compared Figure 4-1 in the State of Australian Cities report with the original source which is a 2011 Pricewaterhouse Coopers report. The caption for Figure 4-1 claims it shows projected annual heat related deaths but it doesn’t, it shows “extreme heat events” which are “rare”. In other words it shows projected deaths from rare severe heat waves. Australia has only had ONE in the last 70 years and that was in 2009.

The PWC report says that annual heat related deaths will increase to between 170 and 200 annually with much of the increase due to population increase and an ageing population. So the stories claiming that heat related deaths will “quadruple” to “2000 annually” are off by a factor of 10!

Here’s the link to the 2011 PWC report. See Figure 1 and Figure 3.
