In the light of the disaster in Victoria some may find this post in poor taste. No offence was intended and I have removed the picture that originally adorned this post because it directly referenced the tragic fires .
If you want to read the post you may do so over the fold.
So you live in Melbourne or Adelaide, well you must be among the most evil folk on the planet because the great goddess of global warming has decided to give you a good smiting with a record braking heat wave.
The city hit 46 degrees at 2.27pm – the hottest day since the Bureau of Meteorology started keeping records 150 years ago.
The previous record was 45.6, set on January 13, 1939 – a day otherwise known as Black Thursday.
“I’ve got a massive spreadsheet here of maximum temperatures and it doesn’t mean anything any more. The whole thing’s gonna have to be rewritten,” BoM senior forecaster Terry Ryan said.
“Most places around the state will break all-time records.”
The town of Avalon, 50km south-west of Melbourne also broke its hottest-day record, reaching 47.6 degrees at 2.42pm.
Wind gusts of up to 82kmh have also been reported at Melbourne Airport, where it was a sweltering 46.2 degrees at 2.44pm.
Other top temperatures around the state include 47.6 at Hopetoun airport (2.30pm), 47.1 at Geelong airport (2.40pm), 46.8 at Laverton (2.41pm), 46.4 at Longerenong in the Wimmera (2.30pm), 46 at Mildura (2.35pm) and 46.3 at Swan Hill (2.30pm).
Do not despair ye sinners there is salvation at hand!
All you have to do is to acknowledge Gaia and take up a thorough course of self flagellation (blood must to be drawn) and renounce all good sense and all traces of scepticism.
You must supplicate your self in the direction of the north pole (home of the divine polar bear martyrs) at ten times in a day, and you will be saved.
If you remain a backslider then you have just had a small foretaste of the fate which awaits you , not in the next world but in this one …
Cheers cool Comrades
