Australia's Hottest Day on Record 1828 a blistering *53.9 °C* : Long
before Industrialization the climate changed naturally for millennia:
Please stop denying history.

February 6, 1851: 117° Fahrenheit (47.22 Celsius) Degrees at 8 AM in
Melbourne. CO2 was at a very safe 280 PPM.

In January 1896 a savage blast "like a furnace" stretched across
Australia from east to west and lasted for weeks.

The death toll reached 437 people in the eastern states.
Newspaper reports showed that in Bourke the heat approached 120°F
(48.9°C) on three days.
The maximum at or above 102 degrees F (38.9°C) for 24 days straight!

See links below to read the news reports.

1.    By Tuesday Jan 14, people were reported falling dead the streets.

2.    Unable to sleep, people in Brewarrina walked the streets at night
      for hours, thermometers a 103°F (42.78°C) at midnight.

3.    Overnight, the temperature did not fall below 103°F (39.44°C)

4.    On Jan 18 in Wilcannia, five deaths were recorded in one day, the
      hospitals were overcrowded and reports said that "more deaths are
      hourly expected".

5.    By January 24, in Bourke, many businesses had shut down.

6.    120 deaths:  Panic stricken Australians were fleeing to the hills.

Meticulous and detailed temperature records from the 1800's comes from
Sir Charles Todd, Australia's first permanent weather bureau at Adelaide
in 1856

The Great Australian Heatwave of January 2013 didn't push the mercury
above 50°C at any weather station in Australia, yet it's been 50°C
(122F) and hotter in many inland towns across Australia over the past
