Summer Temperatures Plummeting In New South Wales

January temperatures at Bourke, NSW have been plummeting since the start of records in the 1870s.  January, 1896 averaged a mind blowing 43C.

Temperatures in January 1896 were incomprehensibly hot. For six weeks, every afternoon was above 114F, and it never got below 100F. Peak temperature was 128F

Compare these 1896 temperatures from the nearby Gundabooka, vs. the fake BOM “record heatwave” of 2014 – which wasn’t even close to the heat of 1896.

    I have relatives that live out there and it has the finest grain reddest soil I have ever seen. All it needs is water and that is scarce. Which is why they measure grazing land in acres per sheep, not sheep per acre. It is also the flattest land you have seen. Anthills can be the highest point for miles around.

      We figure five sheep or more per acre. I was grazing 60 plus animals (Sheep, goats and equines) on ten acres last summer with no hay. (Mid North Carolina)

      This is about 13500 pounds worth or the equivalent of 13 cows.

    The BOM has been removing most “records” from (as far as I can recall) before around 1950. The reasons are apparently to due to “siting” issues, even though Stevenson screens have been in use in essentially every station since 1910, and even prior to that, all stations have been in the shade since at least the 1880’s.

  6. There are quite a few stations in Aus that have cooling trends. How could that be???? Here are just a few
