The Leadbeater’s Possum was presumed to be extinct in the early part of the 20th century. It requires young Mountain Ash forest to feed. But the massive fires of January 13, 1939 cleared out the old growth forest and was replaced with the young forest which the possums need. By 1990, the possum’s numbers may have been at a record high, but decades of fire suppression put them at risk again.

    The BoM is slowly bringing that heatwave under control. The above is a comparison between the daily raw data for Bourke (Jan 39) and the adjusted temps under ACORN1 data. Acorn2 has managed to take it down under the 40C average for the month. There now may be an ACORN2.1 but haven’t been able to access it yet.

    The fourth decade of the last century had probably 4* more heatwaves than
    35 years of global warming combined
    and 20-30* more victims of extreme climate.
    Considering that many of those events either went unnoticed due to the lack of satellites and poor weather records
    or didn’t reach the english language(which is almost the same,as it can not be researched)it makes the current current (non existent) climate crisis look like a student prank.

    Mr. Heller: It’s a good thing all those records are unreliable, those folks couldn’t have handled that heat!
