Global warming: thermometer reached 50.7 degrees in Western Australia, something never seen

At 50.7 degrees, it is the highest temperature ever recorded in the country for more than 60 years. According to the Bureau of Meteorology, this record temperature experienced by residents of the coastal town of Onslow could become a common occurrence due to global warming.

On January 2, 1960, the country recorded a temperature of 50.7°C at Oodnadatta Airport in South Australia, according to the bureau’s website.

Known for its high temperatures and drought, the Pilbara mining region of northwestern Australia traditionally ranges between 30°C and 40°C.

Climate Council director Martin Rice said the record was part of a long-term trend of global warming caused by the burning of coal, oil and gas.

Rice claimed that extreme temperatures were already having “catastrophic and deadly consequences” in Australia. Heatwaves are quietly killing Australia, causing more deaths than any other extreme weather event. Australia has seen a summer of severe wildfires in the west and deadly flooding on its east coast.

According to Rice, without a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, this kind of record heat could become commonplace: “In Sydney and Melbourne, in 2030, we will have 50-degree summer days,” he said.
