It's so hot. Could we have some of that global cooling please?

This thread is so much fail. America just broke cold weather records. Should people here say that's proof that global warming is a hoax? How is that any different than you saying your hot summer time is proof that global cooling is a hoax? It's all so childish.

Aye, but it's not been cold - quite the opposite. That was my point. Though ironically Scottish ski resorts seem to be doing okay (the wind has helped drift snow into the corries), especially compared with, for example, Bulgaria where the lack of snow in the resorts this winter has been exceptional.

Well regardless of the global warming / cooling debate, that is one heatwave I hope to not have to experience again for a long time. I'm from Canberra and we just experienced five days in a row of above 37 degrees, a couple of 40 back-to-back. I don't have air conditioning. We were fortunate to get cool nights though. I seriously felt for the folks in Melbourne and Adelaide with such high and enduring heat temperatures. And yeah I can remember the 1980s too, I was born in 70. Lived in Sydney (South West Sydney where it gets a bit hotter) all my life until moving to Canberra 6 years ago. While I recall hot weather, and yeah there were days over 40 degrees, but when they were they were singled out like a freak hot weather day even back then - I don't ever recall such protracted high temps. The Canberra Times just mentioned today it was the first five consecutive days over 37 degrees in Canberra since records began in 1934. Again not contending in support of global warming but just to mention Australia has experienced some very hot and prolonged heatwave weather in recent years, notably 2009, 2013 and 2014. The Victorian bush fires in 2009 due to the extreme heat wave then resulted in 173 deaths, which is the highest death toll due to bush fires in Australia's history. Australia learned a lot from that tragic event - as it was acknowledged for helping save lives during this recent heatwave and bush fires.

on a side note.....dude....do you know what your screen name means? Didn't know this was a porn site!


O, beware, my lord, of jealousy;
It is the green-ey'd monster, which doth mock
The meat it feeds on. That cuckold lives in bliss,
Who, certain of his fate, loves not his wronger:
But O, what damnèd minutes tells he o'er
Who dotes, yet doubts, suspects, yet strongly loves! - from Shakespeare's Othello

Just because you learned a word on a porn site, it doesn't make the word pornographic.

Extreme hot weather over an extended period sucks and I doubt anyone will be denying that. We have to keep in mind that some are getting excited about 'record' highs & lows that are based on recorded data covering just the last hundred years or so and, in many cases, even shorter periods than that. Geological data indicates sea levels have been much higher and lower than the current experience so long term cyclic behaviour of weather patterns, temperature and mean sea levels is not an outrageous suggestion to be making.

Mankind has always had this 'thing' for waterfront property due to food availability etc so, to make it this far in history, we've had to be adaptable and prepared to relocate in response to climatic fluctuations. Makes me think of places like the Sahara and Atacama deserts that once supported human populations until the lack of rainfall squeezed those populations out to more suitable areas. Some native species don't make the transition and disappear - that's the nature of nature.

One human activity I firmly believe must be severely curtailed is the frightening rate of deforestation that continues to accelerate in defiance of common sense.

indeed it is all so foolish because it is all just that funny blazing nuke plant in the sky called......the SUN!!!!

it is going through a cooling phase and so guess what......the earth is going to be cooling.....

Australian heatwave shows man-made climate change, scientists say



It's always the agenda.

Why can it not just be "climate change"?

Why does every single study and article have to say man made?

We just want and expect it always to be 75 degrees F.

I swear

Anyone remember when they changed the meme from "global warming" to "climate change"?

It was right after we had a few years of incredibly frigid temperatures and snowstorms world wide. TPTB realized that the "global warming" BS was going to be a tough sell.


It was 1988 as far as I can tell. That's when the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change was established. 25 years ago.

Personally i can deal way better with the cold than i can with heat.


Everyone does!

I lived in the tropics my whole life. 30+ celsius is normal but I still hate it! Then I've lived places where it gets below zero, piece of cake! It's a lot easier, more fun, far cheaper to keep warm than to keep cold!

P.S. It's a lot easier to tinker with the car when its 10 celsius than 33 celsius! It's one of the things that drove me to immigrate. It's simply a lot easier to live and work in the cold than hot... ...No one can adapt effectively to the heat unless you're a reptile but cold is easy!
