Why BOM Hides Pre-1910 Temperatures

On February 6, 1851 – Melbourne was 117F at 8AM. These sort of facts wreck the global warming story, so BOM simply makes them disappear.

    Do they just play with computer and not look outside? I guess the Melbourne station has been moved after 100+ years because it became cooler the new location might fit their ideas next to 4 concrete stadiums

    After using Occam’s razor today to shave off seventy years of growth from Big Brother’s chin, the UN was correctly identified as the father of:

    1. The Standard Climate Model
    2. The Standard Nuclear Model
    3. “Big Bang Cosmology,” and
    4. The Standard Solar Model

    The 1851 (Black Thursday) fires are still regarded as the largest bushfires in a populous region in Australian recorded history, with approximately 5 million hectares, or a quarter of Victoria, being burnt.

    “The temperature became torrid, and on the morning of the 6th of February 1851, the air which blew down from the north resembled the breath of a furnace. A fierce wind arose, gathering strength and velocity from hour to hour, until about noon it blew with the violence of a tornado. By some inexplicable means it wrapped the whole country in a sheet of flame — fierce, awful, and irresistible.”

    “But it is only when they are over that they can do anything coolly; for the heat is, during their prevalence, perfectly prostrating. These winds, known in Sydney as “Brickfielders,” are still more terri­ble, owing to the greater heat of the climate and the more sandy nature of the soil. During their continuance the thermometer will rise, not to 110 degrees, as colonial writers admit, but to 140 degrees. The foliage of the forest shrivels up before the fiery blast, and corn crops are sometimes actually reduced to cinder in the ear.”

    Don’t be surprised if the newspaper article is “disappeared” from the NLA online collection.
