Re: Australian heat wave.

Looking at the long term forecast on the weather channel it appears the first week of the Aussie may be wet but then that might just be the graphs they have used and it is not always accurate to look that far ahead.

I do not wish to incite conflict, but personally I'd trust the Bureau of Meteorology over the Weather Channel (lest that is where TWC is getting their info from ) Also, I do not desire stroking the flames between climate change believers vs. deniers. My fear is that changes are happening on a global scale, but people are collectively dismissing what is going on. The super thawing of the Greenland icesheet... bleaching of our coral reefs... Ocean acidification.. Isn't the Great Barrier reef a source of stable tourism income for Australia?

I would image that the Weather Channel would use the BOM as a source for weather forecasting.

I don't think there are that many that really think the climate isn't changing, as I mentioned the winter months have been a more mild than they were in previously decades.

NASA have interesting graphs that show how the world has progressively warmed in recent decades.

FYI in Melbourne today the temp is less than 20c nearly ideal for Tennis. The long term forecast are now showing a warm first week with potentially a very hot middle weekend.

And yes the Great Barrier Reef is very important for the Queensland economy.

No they don't. The Weather Channel Australia does - but TWC in the US get their weather information for Australia from some other unreliable source, like the majority of weather apps on phones.

I've found 3 Android weather apps (none free, all paid) that get their forecasts from BOM. The rest use various unreliable services like AccuWeather.

Look at the forecasts - the 2 differ, sometimes significantly.

Re: Australian heat wave.

Stop whinging, honestly I am over players whinging. Yes it is hot, yes it is uncomfortable...but it is not every day, and the BEST players are protected under the roof. How about players get off their rear end and TRAIN for extreme heat...guess what the players that do are the ones that do well in these conditions...funny that. I love womens tennis but sometimes they just need to get on with it.

But it's not the Russians and other Europeans fault that they live in cold conditions. Shouldn't they be able to spend their off-season with their families like everyone else?

No. What should really be doing is as a global society taking steps to ensure that we don't add more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere to prevent the global average temperatures from going up and up so that we can as a global society continue to play sports outdoors, watch sports outdoors and enjoy the great outdoors.

Try telling plant and animal species that survive within certain temperature ranges to suck it up, they won't, we will run out of food sources and we will starve - slowly but surely.

that carbon dioxide global warming theory is a scam and a sham. Nature naturally puts 97% of the total carbon dioxide output into the atmosphere each year. Do you really think our piddly 3% makes any difference at all. As usual its all about money, bankers making money out of carbon trading and governments making money out of carbon taxes. In the end the ordinary citizen is left with guilt and less money from a phony theory.

Yes the Bankers will make money out of a Carbon Trading Scheme and so will everyday Australians though their super which I Image will include Bank Shares.

Australia has no shortage of renewable energy, only this week there has been a flood of sunlight.
