Proof global warm­ing is a sham

Countryman - - OPINION - Bruce Har­vey, Hy­lows Farm

Mild Perth tem­per­a­tures in the sum­mers of 2017 and 2018 have thor­oughly ex­posed the global warm­ing scam.

Fol­low­ing be­low-av­er­age max­i­mum tem­per­a­tures in Jan­uary, Fe­bru­ary and March 2017, Jan­uary 2018 was cooler again, with the mean max­i­mum tem­per­a­ture of 30.7C be­ing 0.3C be­low the Jan­uary 2017 fig­ure, and 0.5c be­low the long-term av­er­age.

Re­mark­ably, de­spite all 31 days of Jan­uary hav­ing a his­tor­i­cal record of max­i­mum tem­per­a­tures above 40C de­grees, with the mean record high be­ing a whop­ping 42.4c, there were no days above 40C in Jan­uary 2018.

In fact, the high­est tem­per­a­ture recorded was 38C on Jan­uary 14.

This means that for Jan­uary this year, only one day reached the old def­i­ni­tion of a hot day (100F).

The recorded tem­per­a­tures for Fe­bru­ary 2017 were even more stark, with the av­er­age max­i­mum tem­per­a­ture of 29.975C be­ing well be­low the long-term mean max­i­mum of 31.6C.

In fact, the Fe­bru­ary 2017 tem­per­a­tures were so far be­low the norm that the com­puter records ap­pear to have been ho­mogenised.

Fe­bru­ary 2017 fea­tured three dates, Fe­bru­ary 9, Fe­bru­ary 10, and Fe­bru­ary 29, record­ing the low­est max­i­mum tem­per­a­tures ever recorded for those dates, with the 17.4C Fe­bru­ary 9 read­ing be­ing the low­est max­i­mum ever for Fe­bru­ary, 1.6C be­low the pre­vi­ous Fe­bru­ary 16, 1914, 19C record.

Th­ese mild sum­mer tem­per­a­tures follow on from an ex­tremely cold win­ter in 2016 when four all-time minimum tem­per­a­ture\ records were bro­ken in Au­gust and Septem­ber.

I think it is time we stopped pre­tend­ing and cel­e­brated our idyllic cli­mate.
