Scientists are fairly confident that global warming increased the severity and likelihood of extreme heat events in 2013 in Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, Japan, China and Europe.
Blistering heat waves recorded around the globe in 2013 were linked to human-caused global warming, according to a broad survey of studies on extreme weather events published yesterday.
I’m completely confident that these scientists are clueless. The EPA shows that by far the worst heat waves occurred 80 years ago, with CO2 at 310 PPM.
The clearest climate signals emerged in Australia, which is the driest continent on Earth. In 2013, the nation faced its hottest year on record since measurements began in 1910. The year was also exceptionally dry, leading to the colloquial name the Big Dry.
That is total BS. Australia has tons of records from before 1910. 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.
