MACKAY has broken a 33 year weather record today, recording the highest January maximum temperature in recorded history.

Bureau of Meteorology meteorologist Sean Fitzgerald confirmed Mackay recorded a high of 37.6 degrees just after 2pm, breaking the record of 37.2 set back in 1985.

While today is officially the hottest January day in the city's history, the hottest day ever recorded in Mackay was back on December 16, 1964 when a high of 39.4 was recorded.

INITIAL: MACKAY is inching towards breaking the record for the hottest January maximum temperature as heatwave conditions set in across the region.

The record, set in 1985, is 37.2 and the mercury has already sky rocketed to 36 degrees just after 1pm -- and there is plenty of hours left in the day.

Residents are flocking to local pools and beaches to cool down, with an apparent temperature of 39.8 degrees recorded at 11.30am, which has only dipped by about one degree as at 1.30pm.

Elsewhere in the region, temperatures above 40 degrees have been recorded.

A high of 40.5 degrees was recorded at Moranbah Airport at 12.30pm while at Clermont, a high of 39.6 was recorded at 12.51pm....

When Is This Heatwave Coming To An End?
"Stay Indoors, avoid hard, strenuous work -- it is dangerous, especially if you are working outside. Then, finally, try to drink a lot of water," says the weather service.

South Africa is not the only country affected by the sweltering heat.

A brutal heat wave in Australia skyrocketed temperatures in Sydney on Sunday to 47.3 degrees Celsius, making it the hottest weather New South Wales' capital has seen in 78 years, weather officials said.

Houston Coldest Temperature in 20 years

Unread postby jawagord » Wed 17 Jan 2018, 09:10:53

Homeless man freezes to death in Houston.

Cold kills more people than heat every year, mortality rates are higher in winter than summer. Warmer winters vs hotter summers will mean net less deaths.

I forget, How many people died in Houston during the hurricane?

And how many people in Puerto Rico froze to death last winter?

IF just heat were the ONLY consequence of climate change, then at least in the short to medium return, you'd have a point.

First, it's not -- not by a long shot.

Second, the serious problems re AGW (despite the fantasies of the short term hard crash doomers) are the longer term ones. Like realistic forecasts for late this century and beyond.

So how will the children today, and their children, grand-children, etc. feel about your logic re climate change being a good thing?

I predict a net of thumbs-down votes.
Given the track record of the perma-doomer blogs, I wouldn't bet a fast crash doomer's money on their predictions.

Warmer winters would mean fewer deaths, particularly among vulnerable groups like the aged. However, the same groups are also vulnerable to additional heat, and deaths attributable to heatwaves are expected to be approximately five times as great as winter deaths prevented. It is widely believed that warmer climes will encourage migration of disease-bearing insects like mosquitoes and malaria is already appearing in places it hasn’t been seen before.

Dohboi, if you want to be taken seriously, never repost any of the junk science you find at skeptical science. Really it's embarrassing!

Skeptical Science is a climate alarmist website created by a self-employed cartoonist, John Cook. It is moderated by zealots who ruthlessly censor any and all form of dissent from their alarmist position. This way they can pretend to win arguments, when in reality they have all been refuted. The abuse and censorship does not pertain to simply any dissenting commentator there but to highly credentialed and respected climate scientists as well; Dr. Pielke Sr. has unsuccessfully attempted to engage in discussions there only to be childishly taunted and censored, while Dr. Michaels has been dishonestly quoted and smeared. The irony of the site's oxymoronic name "Skeptical Science" is that the site is not skeptical of even the most extreme alarmist positions.

John Cook is now desperately trying to cover up his background that he was employed as a cartoonist for over a decade with no prior employment history in academia or climate science.

Thanks to the Wayback Machine we can reveal what his website originally said,

"I'm not a climatologist or a scientist but a self employed cartoonist" - John Cook, Skeptical Science

Ah, to succumb by 'fire' or by 'ice', which is preferable?

Really a false question. Of course, one notices that the higher the latitude, the more industrious is usually the society. I presume because heating was invented WAY before air conditioning. Still, the HEAT is the current problem, not the COLD, unless we were headed for a snowball Earth, which we are not. +1 for SkepticalScience.

A comment like that tells us who the buffoon is and it certainly isn't Dr Pielke Sr.

Let's see he got an MS and PHD in meteorology in 1969 and 1973 from Penn State. He has taught climatology at Univ Virginia, Colorado State U, Duke U and served as Senior Research Scientist at CIRES in Boulder where he is still an emeritus researcher. He has over 380 publications in peer-reviewed journals, 50 chapters in books and co-edited 9 books all on the subject of climate and has made over 700 presentations to scientific audiences. He received the NOAA distinguished authorship award in 1974. He was co-chief editor of the Journal of Atmospheric Sciences 1996 – 1999. Received the AMS Leroy Meisinger Award for “fundamental contributions to mesoscale meteorology through numerical modeling of the sea breeze and interaction among the mountains, oceans, boundary layer and the free atmosphere”. He is a fellow of the AGU, and a fellow of the AMS. He has been editor of the US National Science Report to the IUGG. He currently serves on the AGU EOS advisory board on natural hazards and the AMS committee on planned and inadvertent weather modification.

And yet you seem to think your knowledge of the subject matter makes you an expert far beyond Pielke Sr, enough so to disparage his work? Give me a break. Tell it to your high school students who are naive enough to believe it.

unless we were headed for a snowball Earth, which we are not. +1 for SkepticalScience.


well since there are a lot of theories about what caused snowball earth and it is still a heavily debated subject after some thirty years (I happen to have known Paul Hoffman (brilliant guy by the way) back in the heady days when he was arguing his very original theory on this subject and know he was never completely convinced himself). That being the case, who knows if it could happen again?

Seems to me the same charges levied against Dr. Pielke:

No matter how relevant Pielke Sr.'s scientific work is, his opinions and statements appear much further from sensible reality and the relevant science.

From Mediabiasfact heck

These sources consist of legitimate science or are evidence based through the use of credible scientific sourcing. Legitimate science follows the scientific method, is unbiased and does not use emotional words. These sources also respect the consensus of experts in the given scientific field and strive to publish peer reviewed science. Some sources in this category may have a slight political bias, but adhere to scientific principles. See all Pro-Science sources.

Factual Reporting: VERY HIGH

Notes: Skeptical Science is a climate science blog and information resource created in 2007 by Australian blogger and author John Cook. In addition to publishing articles on current events relating to climate science and climate policy, the site maintains a large database of articles analyzing the merit of arguments commonly put forth by those involved in the global warming controversy who oppose the mainstream scientific opinion on climate change (Wikipedia). Strictly adheres to the scientific consensus on climate change and sources to credible scientific studies. (1/9/2017)

Ah, the use of the English language to obfuscate:


exactly where does the thought there are a number of competing theories regarding snowball earth and the person who developed the main theory in the first place questions it's voracity not mean that "we can't say what will happen"?

You may have a pet theory, doesn't mean it is any more relevant or consistent with observations than any of the competing ones. By definition, you can't make a prediction without considerable qualification.

As to suddenly ignoring Piekle SR's expertise, vast number of publications and contributions to the science and arguing that his opinions don't jive with some fabricated consensus....well you just threw out the whole notion of science and how it progresses.
It is no wonder the state of public understanding about science on all levels is woefully wanting.

Australia: Heat wave causes blackout in Victoria

Tens of thousands of homes in the Australian state of Victoria were left without power on Sunday night as soaring temperatures crippled the state's electricity network.

The temperature in Melbourne peaked at 38.1 degrees Celsius shortly after 5pm, and, overnight, the temperature remained sultry, only dropping below 30C at 4am....
