Australia's recent heat wave

NASA has an interesting map of Land Surface Temperature Anomaly during Australia's recent heatwave.

A number of climatologists from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology have written What’s causing Australia’s heat wave?:
This warming has been strongly attributed to increasing greenhouse gases from human activities. While there are a number of influences on the climate system, such as changing solar radiation and changing atmospheric aerosols, it is very clear that warming has been dominated by increased carbon dioxide levels.
