Queensland is cold, so very, very cold …
Brisbane Airport experienced its coldest morning on record today, with the mercury falling below zero for the first time … Amberley had its second coldest day on record with minus 4.8 degrees.
And Stanthorpe residents were forced to brave an overnight minimum temperature of minus seven degrees.
Townsville recorded its longest cold snap in 66 years, with continuous minimums below 12 degrees.
The weather bureau’s Greg Connors is predicting there is more to come.
”Not since 1941 have we had such a long cold spell and we think as Friday and Saturday approaches it’s going to get even colder,” he said.
Must be all the carbon. Or something. Down in Victoria, they’re making Gaia cry:
National Electricity Market Management Company spokesman Paul Bird said power use hit a record high.
“It hit 8351MW at 6pm on Tuesday . . . which was about 270MW more than the previous record set on June 19.
“It does show that a lot of people are staying indoors with the colder weather and using a lot more home heating,” Mr Bird said.
They wouldn’t use so much power if it was warmer. Burn that coal, Victorians! Burn it to save the planet!
