New Zealand experiences hottest June on record despite polar blast

New Zealand experiences hottest June on record despite polar blast

For once the Guardian’s headline is accurate – more so than the NZ media (with the exception of the NZ Herald) which thinks this is too sensitive and would rather have people complaining about “cold weather” Average temperatures for the month were 2C higher than normal, with 24 separate locations hitting their own records View of Auckland skyline from Waiheke Island as the sun sets.

Our magnolia tree tells a tale

I have been following our winters here in Lower Hutt and a measure of warming temperature has been that in previous years measured temperatures have been up to 4 degrees Celsius above reported average maximum temperatures. This year, apart from the odd cold patch, we have had weeks of overcast weather with no sun where the temperatures have been much higher than in years gone by.

The other day when doing my morning perusal of the news I came across this item carried by the climate change sceptic publication, Zero Hedge.  Unsettled: What Climate Science Tells Us, What It Doesn’t, And Why It Matters I get all sorts of stuff that tries to tell me that climate change is a hoax and I dismiss them out of hand because their “evidence” such as it is, does not explain the observed reality.
