EXTREME HEAT DUE TO CLIMATE CHANGE COULD SEND BOXING DAY INTO EXTINCTION ?
According to the ABC and the Guardian Newspaper the Boxing Day Test may need to be moved to November or March in the future to avoid extreme heat, which is a danger to players and cricket fans, a new report from Monash University’s Climate Change Communication Research Hub has found.
The study wants Cricket Australia to use its prominence to push for greater climate action and do more to look after player and spectator welfare.
However, according to the climate temperature chart (left) Boxing Day average temperatures have fallen by at least two degrees Celsius since 1855 and almost four degrees Celsius since 1930! Meanwhile, Melbourne has just experienced its coolest summer in eighteen years. Melbourne’s mean temperature (combined minimums and maximums) during summer will be about 20.1 degrees Celsius (68.2 degrees Fahrenheit). This is the lowest summer mean temperature in Melbourne since 2001-02. It had actually peakedat 26 degrees Celsius in 1930
and has dropped to 20.1 degrees this summer.
The Monash University study went on to say that the “shoulder months” of November and March are expected to heat up to become as warm as recent Decembers!
The Boxing day temperature graph shows a similar cooling trend to the US percentages of days over 100 Fahrenheit (left) taken from the Tony Heller website realclimatescience.com, a similar cooling trend since 1895. The same warming period as shown in 1930-1940 in the above graph and the decline to present day.
Percentage of days above 100 degrees Fahrenheit in US have dropped, and the ten hottest years all occurring before 1980 were: 1936,1934,1954, 1930, 1980, 1913, 1925, 1918, 1901, and 1931.
A dust storm rolled into Elkhart, Kansas, on May 21, 1937. The year before, the drought caused the hottest summer on record. In June, eight states experienced temperatures at 110 or greater. In July, the heat wave hit 12 more states.
They were Iowa, Kansas (121 degrees), Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, North Dakota (121 degrees), Oklahoma (120 degrees), Pennsylvania, South Dakota (120 degrees), West Virginia, and Wisconsin. In August, Texas saw 120-degree record-breaking temperatures.
It was also the deadliest heat wave in U.S. history, killing 1,693 people. Another 3,500 people drowned while trying to cool off.
There are so many instances of temperature tampering, cooling the past and warming the present, that you have to wonder how long they can get away with such brazen fraud. The dangerous warming of the earth is no longer a scientific theory but a religion and if you don’t have faith in it you are a denier.
If the Bureau of Meteorology’s Australian Climate Observation Reference Network (ACORN) accurately corrects historic temperature observations, it means that Marble Bar in the north of WA can no longer boast it had a world record heatwave in 1923/24.
Marble Bar has been world famous for decades because of the 160 consecutive days in which it recorded maxima at or above 37.8C (100F or a “century” in the Fahrenheit days).The Marble Bar thermometer in a Stevenson screen topped 100 F every day from 31 October 1923 to 7 April 1924, and nowhere else on earth is known to have recorded 160 century days in a row without a break.
Marble Bar is now a runner-up
The BoM website used to have a Climate Education page explaining Marble Bar’s heatwave record. The National Library of Australia considered it to be of national significance and has archived it for posterity.
In 2020, the BoM website still has a page that explains: Marble Bar, in the Pilbara, holds the Australian record for the longest sequence of days over the old century mark (100°F or 37.8°C). This occurred during the period from 31 October 1923 to 7 April 1924 when the maximum temperature equalled or exceeded 100°F for 160 days in a row.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics acknowledges the world record and Australians have heard about the Marble Bar heatwave record for many decades.
‘Is belief in global-warming science another example of the “madness of crowds”? That strange but powerful social phenomenon, first described by Charles Mackay in 1841, turns a widely shared prejudice into an irresistible “authority”. Could it, *belief in human-caused, catastrophic global warming, indeed represent the final triumph of irrationality?’
