For the first time ever, the AVERAGE high temperature of the island of Australia reached 40 degrees centigrade, equivalent to 104 fahrenheit. The heatwave, at the height of the Australian summer which coincides with the northern hemisphere winter, has been hanging on for a week, and is showing no sign of ending. Fortunately, emergency teams were prepared for this nightmare and no humans lost their lives in the wildfires.
It is worth noting, that when you reach a record high temperature for a region, or when record highs outweigh record lows by a five to one margin, that you probably have a warming world. Add Australia to the evidence list. I don't care if it is snowing where you live. Global warming is real, and you need to admit it.
