    We are in Hell.

    I mean, I'm in an airconditioned office, so I'm okay, but everyone (not in aircon) and everything else is cooking.
    Fake news. It's a libtard conspiracy.

      I know you're being facetious, but I don't get why?

        Yep, it's good to be a desk jockey!

        On Monday as I was leaving for work (7:30am) it was already 30C (86F) @ 70% humidity. Peaked at 39C (102F).

        And it seems that the sunny coast is on fire again:

          I'm making fun of the people that insist that nothing abnormal is happening as the consequences of global warming are becoming glarringly obvious and seriously fucking things up.

            they are almost as dumb as pointing to CO2 as the sole cause and claiming more tax will solve it.

              1. Methane is part of it too.

              2. I'm not advocating for taxes I'm advocating for the people in charge of Exxon-Mobil, Shell, BP, and their ilk to stand trial in front of the ICC for crimes against humanity. Because they knew what was going to happen damn near 50 years ago and deliberately obfuscated the truth.

                Tell it to Beijing, if they haven't suffocated that is.

                  Neither Sub, nor BKR, nor myself deny temperature swings.

                  We may point out scientific specifics, and object when unscientific or pseudo-scientific generalizations are made as research or the most popular working hypothesis is being discussed, however.

                    Newer (2018+) vehicles are coming loaded with audiovisual rear child seat warnings. We haven't had a car seat back there for years now, but every time we turn the engine off we get a ping..

                      Technically the biggest cause of greenhouse effect is water vapor, with CO2 a close second and correlating because the 45% increase in atmospheric CO2 concentration caused by human pollution since the Industrial Age is also causing an increase in water vapor in the global climate.

                      Oceania gets it bad (the worst according to climate science) because of the trifecta of equatorial exposure to the sun, the volumes of ocean water, diversity of terrain etc. "The Liquid Continent" will be the most severely affected place on Earth from AGW, bar none.

                              My gran is in New Zealand and she said it’s cold with no smoke .

                              Perhaps the kiwis will takeover and rebuild the barren wasteland that is left of Australia.

                              Considering all the deadly shit you have out there I was not expecting the trees to be what wiped you out .

                                Man! When they decided to punish all those convicts that they sent down to Australia, do you think they realized that you people would still be down there living in that crazy place? I mean this is punishing generations of people, at this point.

                                Every documentary I've watched about Australia (except Endless Summer 1 and 2) has been about how deadly and uninhabitable the place is. But here yall are, just living there. Streets boiling, magpies bombing you from the skies, snakes injecting you with venom, deadly sea creatures, and now even the air is trying to kill you. But there yall are, just living.

                                Crazy.
