    You’re not suggesting a little UHI here, are you? Nah!

    I’m amazed it hasn’t burned down from all that back-radiated IR from the roadside CO2 and other greenhut gases.

  3. philjourdan says:

    The CO2 from the car exhaust freezes, thus causing abnormally low temperatures that must be adjusted upwards.

    Now normally, the opposite would be true, but since Oz is upside down, things are reversed.

    you will have anthony watts up all night with posts like this.he thought uhi in the states was bad,wait til he sees this lot. luckily the climatologists have special algorithms that take of all these problems by err. . . . adjusting past temperatures down.

    The Heat Wave in 1896 Australia is not on any record (of course) as nobody could read therometers back then.

    The Heat Wave in Australia.

    West Australian telegrams report :—

    GERALDTON, January 19.— Weather very hot ; 125deg. in the shade yesterday. A great deal of sickness prevalent, and water scarce.

    KALGOORLIE, January 19. — The heat on Friday was intense. Mr Z. Lane lost by sunstroke a pair of horses which he was driving to Coolgardie. At night a heavy duststorm, accompanied by lightning and rain, occurred.

    The following items will show in some degree the sort of weather experienced in Perth lately. The Perth “Daily News” of a recent date says the decision of Messrs Stevens and Wilkinson to close the pantomime season for a few days on account of the hot weather was generally approved by playgoers. The same journal has the following:—

    “‘The Mayor of Perth (Mr H. J. Saunders) is to be commended on the rapidity with which he gets through the business of the City Council. Last evening, at the monthly meeting, the heat was almost unbearable ; the thermometer in the room registering considerably over 100 degrees.
    Councillor George, however, does not consider that the dignity of a councillor should be upheld when the mercury is at boiling point, for before the meeting opened he divested himself of his coat and waistcoat, unstraped his braces, and delivered himself of oratorical utterances in his shirt sleeves. Before doing this he appealed to the. Mayor, who was tastefully dressed in an Indian officer’s undress full evening costume, for permission to partially disrobe, and was given a hesitating, though diplomatic answer in the affirmative.”

    This is a small section of a very large report –
