So stop bloody flying around thew world then Mason, you idiot!

It hits you in the face and clings to you. It makes tall buildings whine as their air conditioning plants struggle to cope. It makes the streets deserted and the ice-cold salons of corner pubs get crowded with people who don’t like beer. It is the Aussie heatwave: and it is no joke.

Temperatures in the western suburbs of Sydney, far from the upmarket beachside glamour, reached 47C (117F) last week, topping the 44C I experienced there the week before.

  1. The Aussie summer is hot.

    Lying leftist wants us all to shit our pants because Australia being hot in the summer equals global meltdown.

    It is high time for a far more aggressive action to counter the lies of these brazen eco-freak Marxian scum.

  2. We are surprised by Australian weather because it is full of White people. But Sydney lies at 33°51′54″S 151°12′34″E.

    Flip that into the northern hemisphere and you would get Baghdad at 33°20′N 44°23′E, or Islamabad at 33°43′N 73°04′E or Isfahan at 32°38′N 51°39′E, or Casablanca at 33°32′N 7°35′W

    Tell me, who would be surprised at Islamabad being hot?

  3. Another own goal from the meister: he’s just admitted that there is man-made global warning caused by “unnecessary” trips in jet airliners. Watch it TW, or your tame loony Mr X will have to administer a purge or, even worse, another long diatribe about how the Guardian , BBC, the State schools and hospitals, backed by a world-wide conspiracy of bearded Trade Unionists is making his world unbearable.

  4. Pointing out to someone who believes in man made climate change that they should stop flying is not the same as saying you believe in man made made climate change.

  5. DBC Reed – “Another own goal from the meister: he’s just admitted that there is man-made global warning caused by “unnecessary” trips in jet airliners.”

    No he hasn’t. He has insisted that Mason’s views are internally consistent. You do not have to share those views to notice when they are not internally consistent and hence when Mason is being hypocritical. I don’t have to believe that the Catholic Church teaches The Truth to notice that Pope Francis is a hypocrite because he clearly does not believe that they do either.

  6. The only chance for the world to become unbearable would be the triumph of socialism and that isn’t going to happen Reedy. The only one with an unbearable world is you. Piss off back to the 1950s and maybe a Comet prototype might crash on your nut.

    Still wouldn’t knock any sense into you tho’.

  7. When has Timmy ever denied climate change?

    I seem to remember him regularly saying he accepts the IPCC stuff. Even gets annoyed by it being misrepresented.

    Classic strawman from the Leftist.

  8. Yeah. Really grates how the arms-across-the-world hippies seem to do a lot more flying than rapacious gaia-raping capitalists like me. It’s 44 degrees in Sydney? Yeah, BBC Weather would have told you that at a click.

  9. The question that matters is: is it humid?

    The forties centigrade are bearable if the humidity is bugger all, the usual combination in e.g. Adelaide. Perth too, I imagine.

    On our visits to Sinny in the summer we often met high humidity. In Brizzy they don’t muck about; it’s not “summer” it’s “The Wet”.

  10. “For Sydney, 2017 was the hottest January on record.” Could be, but often such a statement turns out to be mere repetition of someone else’s lies.

  11. The temperature sounds lovely over there. Though the thought of places with aircon….. what I’d want is a place with no aircon.
    Maybe avoid that area in summer then.

  12. Any way off switching off the DBC Reed feed into the comments for a couple of days Tim? – it’s causing me to fall asleep… Must be the fault of ‘all those right wing loonies’. Oh well, no doubt those who are ‘better than us all’ in the nomenklatura will soon send us to the camps for ‘re-education; so we work that out…..

  13. We live in Mackay, Central Queensland. Even at the height of summer, the temperature rarely gets above 30 degrees, but it is very humid. I work inland where the temperature can be in the high 30s, occasionally hitting 40, but it is a much drier heat.

    We actually look forward to the winter months. Day time temperatures are mid 20s, night time mid teens and minimal rainfall, it’s paradise. Definitely the time for unacclimatised poms to visit.

  14. No way is it the hottest whatever on record.

    Mike Heller/Steve Goddard pulls the historical records together for you.

    In the States the hottest year on record (by a long country mile, not a sneaky one day temp taken next to fresh laid tarmac) was 1936, yes 1936. The heat was all over and for weeks on end. Go look.

    Australia, going back a way, saw hotter temps than now. But, lies, truth and boots etc.

  15. dearieme: Perth is usually a dry heat. On the day Sydney hit 47 we had a rainstorm of biblical proportions and for the next week and a half it was unbearably humid. Great timing for me to be recovering from a vasectomy. Sigh.

  16. “Temperatures in the western suburbs of Sydney, far from the upmarket beachside glamour, reached 47C (117F) last week, topping the 44C I experienced there the week before.”

    What’s his complaint here? I mean, I don’t live in Australia – we just call those temperatures ‘summer’.

  17. In the States the hottest year on record (by a long country mile, not a sneaky one day temp taken next to fresh laid tarmac) was 1936, yes 1936. The heat was all over and for weeks on end. Go look.

    Go look before that historical record is ‘adjusted’ until 1936 was a normal year.

  18. Having a quick look at Mr Mason’s article, it’s comforting to note a prominent leftist has failed to learn the lessons of 2016.

    “far-right”
    “white-supremacist”
    “xenophobe”
    “far-right like UKIP’s”
    “appeal to unreason” – I like that
    “inner idiot”

    Not a thing has he learned. Not a thing. Carry on preaching to a dwindling congregation at the Graun.

  19. The Jabr fellow makes a very good comment underneath:

    We, the liberal and progressive people of the world, are at war with the far right to save the earth.

    If climate change science is associated in the public mind with left wing ideology, it just gives them an excuse not to take climate change seriously. Usually, science is afforded the highest respect, and rightly so, but people dismiss climate change not because of the science but because of the left. I don’t dismiss climate change for that reason, but I can understand why people would if climate change is associated with wild-eyed, wacky, left wing radicals.

  20. I’m in Palma for a conference on sustainability, 62 of us have flown here for it. It’s disappointingly cool; should have flown more people out here to try and improve my holiday weather.

  21. The media commentary here is tedious in its predictability.

    Headlines along the lines of “Nearly the hottest January on record” make me ask three questions;

    1. How far back do those records go? Australia is a relative newcomer to civilisation and science.
    2. Does heat or nature recognise the concept of a “January”?
    3. Is the writer disappointed that the record wasn’t broken? Why?

  22. For all the hysteria, there’s nothing unusual about it. Melbourne where I am (approx 800kms south, but we regularly get 40+ in summer here too) was 19C top last Sunday. And Feb is usually the hottest month. Can I say warming is bullshit based on one cool summer? Four years ago, we had a week of 40+ days (one night it didn’t drop below 30), while Sydney was relatively cool. So the writer clearly has no clue

    Also, good luck with that air con thing. Due to global warming insanity, NSW came very close to having to load shed on that hot day. A few weeks ago, South Australia did have to do rolling blackouts because their wind output dropped to 3% of nameplate capacity on a stinking hot day, and they simply could not meet demand. The whole grid didn’t die like last year, but they couldn’t handle a typical, for there, summer day.
