A moderate weather event
It is midwinter in Brisbane where I live. The temperature at my place with doors open and no heating in operation was 28 degrees C at 3pm yesterday. Britons would call that a heatwave. So how come such heat in midwinter? Brisbane is, after all, in a sub-tropical latitude, not the tropics. Could it be that global warming is catching up with me?
Not quite. You see, we also had a very cool summer at the beginning of this year. So instead of extreme weather events, we are having a moderate weather event -- where summer and winter temperatures converge to an unusual degree.
I am sure the Warmists could explain it. They can explain everything "post hoc". But it's certainly pretty weird in an opposite direction to what the panic merchants have predicted. If this is global warming, I love it!
