The Worst Heatwaves

Climate criminals now get hysterical about one day of 96 degree temperatures in summer, and claim they are the hottest ever.

Let’s put this in perspective. In 1913, Greenland Ranch California had a week where every day was between 127 and 134 degrees.

During January, 1896 – Gundabooka, NSW had ten consecutive days over 120 degrees. Mark Twain implied that they must have been near hell.

Heatwaves used to be much worse. Climate criminals are lying about this, like they do about everything else.

  1. I know it’s obvious to most enlightened readers of your posts that Marble Bar is in Western Australia instead of WA, Washington State.

    The Weather Network has started referring to anything over 30 as “searing” heat.

    Good post, but for crying out loud: Greenland Ranch was at Furnace Creek, Death Valley. That place is low, enclosed, and hot in the daytime.

    And we lived there for one summer in the 1950’s when I was a child!

    It was so hot, we were warned to never go outside without shoes, a little girl got her feet fried to the ground that summer…it was so hot, when I was outside, I had to stand with my back to the sun or my toes would roast inside my shoes.

    It was so hot, we went outside to play after sunset. Sit on anything, your behind would be ‘hot seat’ burning. We stood up a lot. What memories!

    We dug holes in the ground, poured water inside and covered these with brush and other stuff and would sit inside to play ‘house’.

    These Internet trolls that have been popping up on this site love to pop off as if they really know something. They are useful idiots, armed with pre-fabricated talking points and adjusted data, but they have never once been bothered to take a look at the actual past weather records, before throwing around words like “unprecedented” or “hottest ever”.

    Gundabooka is near Bourke in NSW. Here are the official temperatures for Bourke. http://www.bom.gov.au/jsp/ncc/cdio/weatherData/av?p_nccObsCode=122&p_display_type=dailyDataFile&p_startYear=1896&p_c=-461161920&p_stn_num=048013

    Gunnedah. — Friday. “The weather is excessively hot, and the thermometer registered 119 in the shade to-day. The Namoi River has dried up, and there is no water suitable for drinking purposes. A meeting has been held for the purpose, of’ sinking wells on the river bank, to obtain water for the inhabitants. Coonamble, — Friday. — The thermometer to-day was 129- in the shade. The birds are dying in hundreds. There is no sign of rain.

    Its a broadacre farming town, not a desert, but a severe drought led to this.
