Earlier this month ABC reported on warmer than average August temperatures in South Australia and managed to drag the specter of global warming into the story.

The Advertiser - 29 August 1928: A hot day, record August Temperatures.
Kalgoorlie Western Argus -15 August 1911: Hot Weather in Adelaide.
The Advertiser - 27 August 1914: Breaking Records, Exceptionally dry August
