Forget the Polar Vortex. Australia is very hot. Australia is so hot its Bureau of Meteorology issued a special statement documenting the "highly significant" heat wave, even worse than last year's, with record-breaking 122 degree readings that necessitated adding new colors to its weather maps. It's so hot a new website, Scorcher, has been set up to track the heat wave. And walls of wildfires deemed "catastrophic" are decimating the countryside, having already hit a nuclear research facility containing two reactors. And up to 100,000 bats have fallen dead from the sky, and parrots, kangaroos and other wildlife are collapsing and dying from the heat, and the country's new conservative climate-change-denying prime minister has remained strangely mute despite a report following last summer's then-record-breaking heat wave that conclusively linked it to climate change, and you are not advised to try to use your iPad or other electronics, which will likely die. But not to worry. It's cold here, so there's no global warming.

I wish I knew where you got those graphs from but I guess sourcing them might make it where they could be debunked.
So tell me historically, what is the "normal" temperature of the Earth? See, "normal" to many folks is what we are currently used to, and any change is claimed to be "devastating to the planet". As the charts below show (data provided from Antarctic ice core air samples) the temperature gradient we are experiencing during the modern human wave (approx 9,000 years now) is itself an anomaly and not "normal" for the planet.
In fact, if you notice the temp spike at approx 320,000 and 125,000 years is much higher than it is today. The fear should be that we will lose OUR temperature gradient and are risking the future of the human race. The planet itself, will survive anything we can do to it, as we are just a fleeting buzzing gnat in it's face.edit on 1/11/2014 by Krakatoa because: Fixed spelling and other fat-finger errors
