Australia experiences hottest ever January

Australia experienced its hottest January on record this year, with the dry continent heating up as part of the global warming process, according to the bureau of meteorology.

Temperatures rose by between 1.0 and 2.0 degrees in most parts of the country, with the national average hitting 29.2°C (84°F) for the summer month, said the bureau’s head of climate analysis, David Jones.

‘It’s a remarkable number certainly. Averaging, as we did across the whole country 1.3 degrees above average is the highest temperature we’ve seen in our history of records for Australia in January,’ he said.

    It’s pretty scary isn’t it. Do you think any of the approaches at changing attitudes to global warming are working? Check out the site http://www.goshout.com.au/hot for an interesting and whats proving to be controversial new message.

    Would like to hear your thoughts.
