the above should actually read too long in airconditioned institutions.

Dear Belly,

I did a bit of searching on the web.

The following link gives a rather good summary
for those who are still sceptical about climate change:

The Bureau of Meteorology warned in the climate report
published in late 2016 that the "duration, frequency
and intensity of extreme heat events have increased
across large parts of Australia." And that "Australian
temperatures are projected to continue increasing."

They confirmed that "There's a clear trend where those
extreme hot days across the continent are increasing, and
quite dramatically over the past 20 years." Regarding
fire weather - which includes things like wind speed,
humidity, and drought factor - we've seen a shift in
most of Australia's fire-prone regions towards
a longer fire season and an increase in the frequency and
extremity of fire events, as well as fire danger days."

We're told that our country's current administration is
deeply hostile to any substantive action on climate
change, and the recent heat has seemingly done little
to change their minds.

The suggestion is that if Australia's summers grow even
hotter in the years ahead, the public's patience for
inaction regarding climate change is likely to wear thin.
Perhaps moving Parliament to the Sydney suburb (Sydney's
hottest suburb) of Penrith - or somewhere equally hot and
without air-conditioning might help Australia's politicians
to move things along.

Dear Hasbeen,

You wrote;

"So yes mate, it is hot, but nothing we haven't had before."

True. To quote statistics from one of the BOM sites near you which I had highlighted in another thread;

This year's highest November temperature in your neck of the woods this year was only 7th highest since the station's records starting from the mid 50s.

It was in 2016 that all November records for 60 years were smashed with a 38.6 degree day.

That wasn't all. In the same year the both June and July took out the highest records for each particular month as well.

And then last year January, March and September also blew away previous records from the last 6 decades.

So the previous two years saw six of the highest temperatures recorded in a particular month since records began at the weather station.

Apparently nothing to worry about really.

Gotta say I love you mate. You really do cheer up a bloke's day.

relax Steelie. Getting hot under the collar on the basis of propaganda is a waste of time.

Dear runner,

Well matey if we compare the propaganda exposed in a 1900 year old book to hard temperature data from a reputable government agency I know which one most people would put their houses on.

Runner your depth of understanding has to be questioned
Surely you do not think formal reports by the very folk who are tasked with that job are propaganda
Is your world so bleak
Too shallow charges that impress very very few you spend much time understanding the subject
I found some good in it, it reminds me those making the claim it is fraud are ,at best, not well informed
