Question: Global warming alarmists stated that droughts have never been as bad and that our cities have never been hotter, is this true?
Answer: Wrong. Studies released by the University of NSW Climate Change Research Center confirm not only that we've had worse droughts, but that "Big Dry" (as the Warmers called it before the floods began) is not caused by "global warming."
"A team of Australian scientists has detailed for the first time how a phenomenon known as the Indian Ocean Dipole-a variable and irregular cycle of warming and cooling of ocean water-dictates whether moisture-bearing winds are carried across the southern half of Australia."
Same natural causes as the epic floods that covered Australia for the past couple of years; here's a two-century long chronology of Australian floods:

As the university's press release says: "The causes of southeastern Australia's longest, most severe and damaging droughts have been discovered, with the surprise finding that they originate far away in the Indian Ocean.
Our cities have never been hotter? Yet another myth.
Wrong. The alleged "record" temperature Melbourne set in January 2009 - 46.4 degrees-was in fact topped by the 47.2 degrees the city recorded in 1851. (See the Argus newspaper of February 8, 1851.) (The Argus newspaper was not sponsored by Big Oil)
And here's another curious thing: Despite all this warming we're alleged to have caused, Victoria's highest temperature on record remains the 50.7 degrees that hit Mildura 103 years ago.
South Australia's hottest day is still the 50.7 degrees Oodnadatta suffered 37 years ago. NSW's high is still the 50 degrees recorded 70 years ago.
What's more, not one of the world's seven continents has set a record high temperature since 1974. Europe's high remains the 50 degrees measured in Spain 128 years ago, before the invention of the first true automobile.
