Experts predict 50C temperatures in Australia, due to increased levels of CO2 in the atmosphere.
Australia reached 51C in 1906.
Not surprisingly, BOM hides all of the hot weather before 1910.
One of the hottest days on record in Australia was January 7, 1906.
This was near the end of 15 years of the Federation drought.
There was also a tremendous drought in Europe at that time.
And in the US.
Minnesota also had some of their worst fires that decade.
The New York Times described the the January, 1896 heatwave in Australia as the hottest of hot waves on record.
The year 1896 brought record heat all around the world, including Arizona’s longest spell over 120F.
India was 51C.
National Geographic reported that Alaska’s largest glacier retreated 40 miles by 1896.
The Bureau of Meteorology used to have this web page describing the world’s record heatwave in 1923, and 50C temperatures in 1960 and 1998.
They have since hidden this page.
BOM’s excuse for hiding huge temperature anomalies before 1910, is that they claim the thermometers back then read about one degree too high.
