The problem with renewable energy is more to do with the way the schemes have been set up and just as we see with all forms of technology things become cheaper over time as new technologies are developed.

It's like demanding a seismologist to predict exactly what time and place the next earthquake will occur down to the exact second/kilometer. They have a good guess at the location at least (fault zones).
Well argued by all of you three. You totally owned the climate sceptics. I've nothing more to add.

I've never liked Margaret Thatcher but I'm surprised to learn that:

This thing isn't even worth debating anymore. Either people are so blinded by their agenda or they just have no clue.

Actually I read later that those scales were false and that the temperatures didn't actually reach 50+ in those parts. But then large areas in central Australia are not monitored so it could still be true.

I'm not alarmed by such one off phenomenon. More alarming is how the global average temperature is up 1 degree. Yes, a small amount but these are the amounts that make a difference.

This heatwave would've happened anyway but we are operating in a world that is a whole degree warmer, which exacerbates it.
