The Murray River (Australia’s longest) was dry for six months in 1902.
From 1896 to 1902, the worst drought in Australia’s history is believed to have killed half of the sheep population. It was also a period of both record heat and cold. April, 1902 was the driest month of the twentieth century.
This drought followed on the heels of extremely heavy rainfall in the late 1880s and early 1990s, proving once again that the climate was very comfortable and stable when CO2 was below 350 ppm.
We need to spend trillions of dollars so we can pretend to be trying to make the climate just like some people imagine it used to be.
