    Meanwhile in the netherlands they want to shut down all cheap energy providers to achieve their co2 emission goal.

    ‘Other measures being considered to cut emissions include closing coal-fired power stations sooner than planned and cutting the speed limit on motorways from 130 to 100 km/h. However, experts say even these plans will not be enough to achieve the 25% target.’

    We now live in crazy land.

    The media are trumpeting that Adelaide set a heat record today, and I won’t lie it was hot- it was VERY hot today. It reached 115.9F (46.6C).
    But that’s only the 4th hottest day ever. The West Terrace site in Adelaide was 116.3 in 1858, and on 10th and 12th January 1939 new records were set, 116.9 and 117.7 (47.6).
    Sometime, I think in the 1990s, the BOM decided these temperatures were too high to be acceptable to their agenda and arbitrarily decreased them down. The record day was altered from 47.6 down to 46.1.
    Adelaide has scrupulous weather records complete from 1856 thanks to the conscientious work of men like Sir Charles Todd and Edward Bromley who were meteorologists for many decades each. Now we are supposed to believe they didn’t know what they were doing!

    Bourke Post Office raw Tmax data was abnormally high in the 19th century relative to the regional average, probably due to screen and other issues:

      Thanks for sharing the propaganda. Temperatures recorded at Bourke in 1896 were considerably lower than those recorded along the Darling River that same month.

      Data is data. It is neither raw nor cooked, it just is. Once data is adjusted it is no longer data. What your graph shows are artifacts of analysis, man made numbers to support man made global warming. You can believe whatever you like, but you cannot invent data.

      (as some kind of proof??!).

      Bourke is 375 km NW of Dubbo (more inland and further north) … higher temperatures are expected.

      Bourke is hotter than Dubbo, which is hotter than Narrabri, which is hotter than Forbes, which is hotter than Gunnedah, which is hotter than Walgett.

      But the logic is that they all must ‘stay in their lanes’???! That makes no sense at all, it depends on local conditions and where prevailing winds and weather were coming from in each year.

      And you will note Bourke, Dubbo, Forbes, and Gunnedah ALL spent a considerable proportion of years on the high side of the ‘lane’, while Walgett and Narrabri stuck close (but not below) the ‘normal’.

      If that sort of logic rules our historical temperature adjustments it explains a lot.

    Jo Nova is all over it, showing that there were HOTTER years and many all time records still unbroken.
