‘IF YOU thought it was cold at your place last night, spare a thought for the people of Goulburn.
The NSW Southern Tablelands city shivered through the night as temperatures plummeted as low as minus 10 degrees Celsius, with the apparent temperature scale hitting minus 13.1.
And it wasn’t the only place driven to cranking the fire and powering up the heaters.
Much of south eastern Australia was held in winter’s icy grip.
Bathurst froze with the temperature hitting -5.7 at 6am, in NSW’s Hunter Valley Scone hit -3.1 at 7am, on the Northern Tableland’s Glen Innes dropped to -4.8 at 5am, while in the south Bega hit -2.8 at 6am.
In Sydney it was north-western suburb Richmond that hit the lowest temperature of -0.8 at 6:30am.
In the Illawarra Moss Vale dropped to -4.9 at 7:30am, while in the Snowy Mountains it was certainly frosty with Bombala hitting minus 5.7 at 7am, in the Central West Cowra dropped to -4.9.
Heading south and Hay hit -6.3 at 7:30am, Braidwood shivered at -7.2 at 7am, and Canberra dropped to -8 at 6:30am.
In Victoria it was a similar story with Swan Hill dropped to minus four at 7am, Horsham hit -1.2 at 8am, Avalon dropped to -3.6 at 6:30am, while Bendigo dropped to -1.2.’ http://www.dailyliberal.com.au/story/4764873/winter-freeze-hits-south-eastern-australia/?cs=2452
‘”We are close to the tipping point where global warming becomes irreversible. Trump’s action could push the Earth over the brink, to become like Venus, with a temperature of two hundred and fifty degrees, and raining sulphuric acid,” he told BBC News.
“Climate change is one of the great dangers we face, and it’s one we can prevent if we act now. By denying the evidence for climate change, and pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement, Donald Trump will cause avoidable environmental damage to our beautiful planet, endangering the natural world, for us and our children.”‘ http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-40461726
The sad part is that even those who are freezing through another typical Australian winter believe Hawking and the other climate change global warming dots!
