Climate Change and Conservative Brain Death -- NYMag
Speaking of climate (and weather): Brisbane forecast is for 34 degrees on Saturday.
Everyone is complaining about the heat and humidity here of a long lasting summer. Not that the upper temperatures are breaking records: just that it seems to have been muggy and relatively breeze-less for so many days (and nights) this summer. Not much rain, but enough that the place still looks green.
Googling around, it seems that many parts of the Northern Hemisphere are exceptionally warm so far this March. I wouldn't be surprised if the February giant leap in global temperature anomaly is beaten again in March.
