Sydney’s temperature record is just about as corrupted as it get, located adjacent to 21 lanes of asphalt and many buildings. It shows about 2C warming since the 1890s.
But if we move on up the coast to Newcastle Nobbys – which has one of the longest continuous temperature records in Australia , we see a completely different story. There has actually been no warming since the 1850’s at a station uncorrupted by UHI
It is quite likely that all claimed warming in New South Wales is due to UHI effects.
Droughts appear to be intensifying over much of the West and Southwest as a result of global warming. Over the past decade, droughts in some regions have rivaled the epic dry spells of the 1930s and 1950s. About 33 percent of the contiguous United States was in at least a moderate drought as of September 2.
Complete bullshit. Only about 10% of the US is experiencing drought (i.e. less than normal) and the droughts are nothing like the 1930’s and 1950’s
Compare the current map above with 1934 and 1956
As always, the New York Times is lying to their readers about climate. They are a propaganda branch of the White House, not a news organization.
