Last night I was interviewed by TRT - Turkey's answer to Al Jazeera - on a panel moderated by Adnan Azwaz on the Australian fires. My fellow panellists were Professor Mark Howden and Tony Kevin.
The lower tropospheric temperature over Australia, which we are showing here, was hotter than average, but only the 15th hottest in the satellite record.
For all those who struck for the climate, there is no sign of acceleration, although there has been a contraction of the range.
The satellite record continues to confirm that temperatures are increasing, although at a lower rate than that claimed for the land-based records.
The UAH record for May shows temperature for Australia to have been just slightly hotter than the May trend, which is the first graph that I have displayed, but there have been plenty of hotter Mays in the past of the record, as far back as the late 80s.
The UAH temperature anomaly for March was 0.59 degrees. This is identical to last year.
Mark Butler made 4 claims about electric vehicles, each of which was incorrect.
2019 is not the hottest Australian summer ever, but the second hottest, with 1991, 28 years ago being the hottest.
