About 100,000 bats have fallen from the sky and died during a heatwave in Australia that has left the trees and earth littered with dead creatures.
In scenes likened to "an Alfred Hitchock thought bubble", a heatwave across the north-east state of Queensland in recent days caused mass deaths of flying foxes from an estimated 25 colonies.
"It's a horrible, cruel way to die," a conservation worker, Louise Saunders, told The Courier Mail.
"Anything over 43 degrees [Celsius, 109F] and they just fall. We're just picking up those that are just not coping and are humanely euthanising what we can."
well i have never heard of bats dying like before but that doesn't mean it has not happened.......what i can tell you is i felt like keeling over and dying during that heatwave last week.......and its a humid heat as well making it close to unbearable
It's just stunning how everything their entire agenda is based on one lie after another. "Global Warming is Freezing You," and the article claims that man-made global warming is slowing down the jet stream, and that's why the cold air is coming down. Global warming is slowing down the jet stream! They don't explain how. They just say, "It must be," because, see, they've bought it. They have bought -- hook, line, and sinker -- man-made global warming. They believe it. I've told you; I read the tech blogs. Stunning, folks. They believe it.
I blame the dead bats on global cooling.
Like Rush Limbaugh says…
Im in Australia and never heard of anything like that before! How sad though Its been pretty hot!! and here in W.A temperatures are going to rise in the next couple of days reaching 43c sunday some parts have already reached 47! crazy this extreme weather on both top & bottom of our planet ...

Volunteers have been overwhelmed collecting the dead bodies and have brought in over 200 baby flying foxes for care.
