The year 1896 brought record heat to both hemispheres, with CO2 below 300 PPM. Interesting how climatologists pretend this didn’t happen, and in fact NASA has largely erased it from the temperature record.
The summer of 1896 was the hottest on record in Arizona
The heat covered the US, and caused “terrible mortality” in Chicago
People dropped dead from the heat in London
January, 1896 was by far the hottest month is Australian history.
Some places reached 130 degrees.
Parrots dropped dead out of trees.
The heat killed millions of rabbits
Temperatures in Australia plummeted over the next 50 years, as CO2 began to rise.

There you go, confusing them with facts again.
“Last night Mr. Russell, speaking of the present drought, said it was almost general, not only over Australia, but over the earth. India in the East was suffering, as were also the great agricultural districts of America in the West.”
Misreading thermometers was a fairly common cause of death in the past, thank a God we are smarter now.
“The record for the world’s longest heat wave goes to Marble Bar in Western Australia. From October 31, 1923 to April 07, 1924 the temperature broke the 100 °F mark setting the heat wave record at a scorching 160 days.” Australian BOM – which I see you’ve referenced before.
Google heat wave record Australia today and all you see is the 2014 summer – which while hot was merely an inconvenience compared to the past records – conspiracy anyone ?
Thank goodness the CO2 radiated all that excess heat away, or we’d all have been DOOOOOMED!
