High temperatures in NSW and Qld "due to global warming"

Of course they are, you denier you. It only took a matter of hours before the alarmist Fairfax press made the inevitable link between the record temperatures in NSW and Queensland and "long term warming" - hang on, wasn't that "climate change" last week? Hey, just use whichever term fits the agenda best!
THE north is sweltering and, in historical terms, the south is rarely cold. The result, according to the Bureau of Meteorology, has been a winter of record-breaking warmth across the continent.

Temperatures in Queensland, northern NSW and the Northern Territory pushed up to 15 degrees above average over the past week. Brisbane yesterday reached 35.4 degrees, nearly 3 degrees warmer than the previous August high.

No weather event can be attributed to climate change alone [there's a "but" coming here - Ed] but [and there is is] Dr Jones said he believed it was impossible to divorce the current variability from a long-term warming.

''We've always had heatwaves, we've always had warm spells in winter, but what we're seeing now is this combination of the warming trend and the extremes coming together to see very large and very long-lived records broken and often by substantial margins.''

I will wait with bated breath for The Age article that links record cold to "global cooling". In any event, we all know the planet is on a gradual warming trend, as it recovers from the Little Ice Age, so in many ways it's not surprising that records will get broken. However, whether humanity is to blame is an entirely different question.

Read it here.


  • The weather hasn't been too flash in the south for the last week. Tassie's had heaps of rain, Melbourne getting blasted by southerly gales, as is SA and the snowfields will be getting a dumping tonight.

    But that's just weather.

    Things will change a bit by Friday with a high pressure system bringing finer, warmer weather.

    That's gorebull warming.

  • I was waiting for Fairfax to run an AGW article on the last few days weather.

    And sure enough...
