Australia's average maximum daytime temperatures really sizzled — last year was 2.09 degrees Celsius above the 1961-to-1990 average, smashing the previous record by half a degree. Dr Karl Braganza, the Bureau of Meteorology's head of climate monitoring, said it was the first time an annual anomaly had been two degrees above average. Annual mean temperatures were also the highest on record for the country as a whole, at 1.52C above average. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-01-09/bom-2019-review-portrays-year-of-weather-extremes/11852500 and this year is already on target for being worse yet again.. ======== Benson Average temp up 1.52 C in only 12 months not millions of years... duh! So uhm... What is your theory on what is causing this incredibly and anomalous ( only 150+ years) rapid and accelerating heating up that the world is experiencing? How is few million years of climate change being compressed into a mere 200 odd years?
