It was 107.4 degrees in Australia earlier this month. An all time record.

Everything is fine though...global warming is just an extremely accurate hoax or something...what we really need to worry about is all of these dangerous windmills like Trump keeps telling us.

More like the story you linked to is a hoax
From here

The Cloncurry record was later removed from Australian records because it was measured using unsuitable equipment (that is, not in a Stevenson screen, which only became widespread in Australian usage after about 1910). According to the Australian Bureau of Meteorology, the current heat record is held by Oodnadatta, South Australia, 50.7 degrees Celsius, occurring on 2 January 1960.

Meanwhile North America is recording record lows in temp. Shame that mother nature isn't cooperating with your hoaxy science eh?

Oodnata is not even in NSW. Have you ever been to Australia? It is a massive country. That is like comparing a record in Orlando to a record in Death Valley.

The story you linked to stated it was the hottest day in Australia. I proved you wrong, so you move the goal posts. Nice!

The nation endured its hottest-ever day on Tuesday, but that record was smashed again on Wednesday - which saw an average maximum of 41.9C (107.4F).

Tuesday's 40.9C had eclipsed the previous record of 40.3C, set in 2013.

I think you're comparing apples and oranges. You are trying to compare the hottest average day across all of Australia with the highest temperature in a single location in the middle of the desert.

Trying to bend statistics to pretend the world isn't heating up is silly. It very clearly, undeniably is. You can just look at the annual global temperatures hitting ATHs over the last decade and see that it is true. The North Sea is opening up and you can take cruises through it now.

I mean Trump is trying to buy Greenland, so on some level even he must know global warming is real and is just gas lighting his constituents.

That's because Greenland is strategically significant and has a treasure trove of natural resources including rare earth materials. Right now China produces most of the rare earth minerals used in products in the world with the US a long way back.

The US interest in Greenland has nothing to do with climate change.

"Greenland’s strategic value is linked tightly to new North Atlantic shipping lanes opening up due to melting polar ice caps. The new lanes have dramatically decreased maritime trade travel times, which generally includes traveling through the Panama or Suez canals to circumnavigate the world."

Wait, now you're arguing that global warming is a good thing?

I mean it is great for countries covered completely in ice. It is not so great for all the countries where people actually live though. If you think the refugee issues we have are bad now just wait for the next 10-20 years when populated areas in the ME and near the equator start to become uninhabitable.

And prior to 1970 the earth had even hotter periods, the funny thing is climate alarmist pretend that temp readings don't exist before 1970 because they prove the entire "sky is falling' bullshit you pieces of shit peddle to be the absolute farce that it is. https://www.sciencedirect.com/topics...al-warm-period

Desert or Green, once the wet bulb temperature gets too high you can't dissipate heat by sweating so unless you have air conditioning you will die. Refugees don't have air conditioning...

The MWP was not a global event. What you are saying is not true.

Actually it was. Granted we have new ice caps forming today as well but again because it doesn't fit the AGW cultist manifesto pieces of shit like you hand wave it away. When did you realize you were a marxist anyway? Was it during college or prior?

Lucky for us, they're only predicting a 3-7 degree rise in the next century instead of 50 then!

Maybe that's why Amazon paid no taxes in 2018...

But that's your problem. Keep arguing while I keep eating popcorn.
