January, 1858 Adelaide Heatwave Was 11 Degrees Warmer Than The 2014 Mann-Made HeatwavePosted: December 19, 2015
“In January, 1858 Adelaide had nine consecutive days over 100F, topping out at 116”
Such historical temperature data, is like kryptonite to the warmist ABC, who are today running hot on Adelaide’s 4th consecutive day over 40C, claiming this is a new “record”, as confirmed by the BoM, who’s temp record conveniently begins in 1910, wiping out the extreme heat of the late 1800’s. Extreme heat that led to the Federation Drought – 1895-1902.
In January, 1858 Adelaide had nine consecutive days over 100F, topping out at 116.3.
The graph below compares that to the “record heatwave” during the last nine days in Adelaide. The 1858 heatwave averaged 11 degrees warmer, with every day of the heatwave hotter than the corresponding day this year. CO2 was 280 PPM at the time.
