The miserably hot conditions in southern Australia (it got to 45.1oC* at 4-30 pm in Melbourne as I write) over the past few days have attacked the brain of Climate Change Minister Penny Wong. She claims the conditions confirm the warnings given by scientists about climate change. They do no such thing. As I have pointed out before meteorologists claim that 50 years temperature data is necessary to confirm temperature changes not 4 days.
* That is 113.18oF. This does seem to be a Victorian record high temperature. (Update: Wrong Harry, it got to 47.2oC in Mildura in 1939. The highest temperature in Australia ever was in Oodnadatta in 1960 when it got to a frigid 50.1oC).
