Those of us in the wide brown land get accustomed to the media blitz about hottest ever this or that period. I see our Minister Wong while away in Copenhagen even joins in. Look for her third segment.
“We know that we’re at the end of what looks like the hottest decade that the world has seen or recorded. Australia’s had its third hottest year in history since measurement began.”
We are accustomed for over a decade now to these IPCC type pontifications on hottest year before the year has ended. We will do some checking in 2010.
During November I heard much media talk that Australia was headed for the hottest six months = hottest winter and spring since records began.
Now that chatter has gone deathly silent.
I see a great big NOTHING at the BoM media release pages re a post Nov announcement specifying heat records for winter plus spring (June-Nov incl).
There is an old saying, “put up or shut up”. Is it the position that November cooled of towards the end and spoiled the party ?
Can any readers record here URL’s to media claims in last month or so of heat records at specific sites that look checkable?
