Coldest March On Record In Australia : Government Calls For New Taxes To Reduce The Heat

Temperatures

Maximum temperatures nationally were the coldest on record with a national anomaly of -2.19°C. Most of Australia recorded below average mean maxima with parts of the north and south of the country recording their coldest March on record. This was partly due to increased cloudiness across most of the country associated with the above average rainfall recorded throughout the month. March 2011 included some contrasts between the majority of Australia and the west and east coasts, which were the only areas that experienced above average daytime temperatures. Temperatures were coolest in the central part of Australia where rainfall was most abnormal, with maximum temperatures more than 3°C below average Similarly, drier conditions matched up with areas of above-normal maxima in western WA.

    Before Hansen is through with his crayons and coloring book, Australia plus the whole South Pacific will all be bright red.

    Steven,
    Why do you focus on cold? Heat and drought are the problems for Australia. Nevermind the recent floods and record cold. Hotcoldflooddrought is what you should be addressing. Have I made myself clear???

    I wonder what the min Ts were. Yes it was cloudy across most of Oz most of Summer, but that would mean min Ts may have been above normal.
    Jimmy boy will grab the data, massage the day Ts down a little, massage the night Ts up a little and voila, we have the hottest summer on record.

    Anyone remember the old Sammy Davis jnr song “The Candy Man”?

    Who can take the sunlight, sprinkle it with dew
    Cover it with chocolate and a miracle or two
    The Hansen Man, the Hansen Man can
    The Hansen Man, oh the Hansen Man can
    He mixes it with warming, makes the world feel good

    Who can take the temperature, with homogenising
    Seperate the cooling and collect up all the warming,
    The Hansen man, the Hansen man can,
    The Hansen man, oh the Hansen man can,
    He mixes it with warming and makes the world feel good.

    Should get onto the Minnesotans
