The usual climate criminals have been claiming that fires never used to happen this early, but in 1895 they happened two months earlier.

    The rise of industrial America from 1877-1900 must have released Massive amounts of CO2, making the Australian winter of 1895 a scorcher.

    Meanwhile just across the ditch, people have died from the stuff “kids won’t know what it looks like.”

    Just made this remark on Myth and the Murray blog re 1895 fires:

    Interesting, and in line with the huge climate swings of the 1890s. Dry westerlies in late August, depending on other conditions, can be as bad as it gets in northern NSW.
    Here’s some history the klimatariat will refuse to hear, but it’s undisputed fact:

    In my part of northern NSW, in 1895, January dropped a phenomenal 575mm on us. It was followed by the driest winter on record. Less than 3mm of rain fell in the four months from May to August.

    Extremes? Climate change? That’s what the 1890s were all about.

    Geoff Sharp from Landscheidt.info has this explanation:

    Once the “loops” of the jet stream are turned the other way, Australia could be headed for a severe cold spell. Antarctic sea ice is at a record level.

  5. Rosco says:

    Eastern Australia typically has a dry spring. As there are huge tracts of tropical and sub-tropical desert inland it is hardly surprising that warm to hot northerly winds pose a fire risk in dry times.

    The last month or more has been very windy here with northerly winds responsible for above average temperatures.

    Hot dry air gusting at high speed during dry periods – natural fire danger but little to do about it except possibly cease building in the middle of eucalypt forests.
