On January 13, 1939, The Sydney Morning Herald reported: ‘Based on officially recorded maximum temperatures ….. the registration of 124 degrees (51.1°C) at White Cliffs was the highest recorded in New South Wales since the record for the State, 125 degrees (51.7°C) was made at Bourke in 1909’.

Yet, if you look at BOM’s current records for ‘New South Wales Climate Extremes’, these heat records of the past have disappeared – and nothing 50°C or over is listed.

Amazing. Even the famous magician David Copperfield would have trouble pulling off a stunt like that.

Craig Kelly is the Liberal Member for Hughes.
