A Leaf in Fall: Weather =/= climate, therefore this in no way relates to global climate change.Just to get that out of the way.
illegal.tender: All joking aside, the human species is farked.
clancifer: The daily conversion of billions of gallons of a non-naturally forming liquid into a gas has absolutely no impact on this kind of stuff. No way.
endmile: FTFA: To give you an idea of just how uncomfortable this Australian heatwave really is, consider that it's just past midnight there right now ... and it's 95°F in Sydney.95 at midnight is nothing compared to Phoenix. That concrete/asphalt nightmare holds heat so well it's still 105 at 3 in the morning, even though it was only 117 in the day. Glad I left that hell.
The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: That's going to melt all the snow in the Alps.
Deep Contact: conclusion-It's hot in a desert in summer.
This text is now purple: Imagine that. One of the least hospitable places on earth continues to be inhospitable. It's almost as though it's empty for a reason.
Farking Canuck: I wish people on both sides of the fence (the pro-science and the anti-science) would figure something out: You cannot ever look at a temperature or other condition in one place at one time and use the word climate.Could the current heat wave in Australia be a result of their climate shifting? Maybe. If the trend of noticeably hotter seasons holds for 10 years, withing the range of natural variation, we can start to suggest that it has shifted. Trend still holding after 30 years then we can begin to confidently say that there has been a shift to a hotter climate in that region.The facts are simple: We've been warming long enough that we have seen definite climate shifts. Animal and plant migrations / extinctions, etc. But pointing at extreme weather and saying it proves or disproves GW just loses you credibility.
you have pee hands: illegal.tender: All joking aside, the human species is farked.Besides rats and cockroaches, we're probably the toughest species to get rid of entirely. Live everywhere, eat everything.
computerguyUT: 129?Meh, people in Egypt call that "balmy".
Archae hippy: Just for fun I went to wikipedia to see how this relates to the "worlds hottest". it's only second to death valley in 1913 (134 F), and possibly behind Somalia (unverified 131 F).What I really learned though, is that is has NEVER been hotter than 92 in Scotland. Weird.WIKI

Weird.WIKIScotland is further North than half of Canada. Based on it's lattitude the 'weird' part is why it's rarely covered in ice (ocean currents moderate the temperature of the British isles).
