  Further to Joe Root’s surprise that it gets hot in Australia in the summer, we can plot the highest temperature each year at Sydney, using the website below:

These records were observed at Sydney’s Observatory Hill Park and go back to 1859. I have downloaded the data and charted it:

The record stands at 43C in 2018. However there are 13 years which reached 42C, including 1863 and 1896.

Given that urbanisation has certainly upped temperatures, there is certainly no justification for Joe Root’s hysteria.
