105 YEARS OF GLOBAL WARMING AT MARBLE BAR

The weather station at Marble Bar was opened in 1885 and closed in 2006. And it looks like the township of Marble Bar and location of the weather station has not been effected by an ‘urban heat island’ creating an artificial warming bias in the temperature record.
During that time (1885 to 2006) Co2 levels have increased for 292ppm to 380ppm (0.029% to 0.038%)

The year with the hottest average monthly mean temperatures was 1944 at 37.1°C (Co2 : 310.2 ppm)

The 2nd Highest was the year 1936 at 37.1°C (Co2 : 310.1 ppm)

The highest ever recorded temperature was 49.2° C on the 11th Jan 1905 and again on 3rd Jan 1922. (Co2 : 304 ppm)

Marble Bar also set a world record of most consecutive days of 100 °F (37.8 °C) or above, during a period of 160 days from 31 October 1923 to 7 April 1924. (Co2 : 305ppm)
