    If Heidi says it is worse now, it must be so. Especially being such a climate expert.

    Maybe Steve/Tony could start a jeopardy game, climate change version.

    I’ve visited Marble Bar twice during the 1980s. It is dry, desolate, dusty and, when you first see it, uninhabited. Wife and I picked up a collapsed dog from the side of the road on our first visit and took it into town, to the Police Station. We were directed to take the dog to an Aboriginal lady down the road who looked after such cases.
    The dog died of thirst before we’d covered the mile or so to her house.
    Marble Bar is that sort of town.

      I worked for years at a mine about 30 km from Marble Bar. Unrelenting heat. Day and night. It was often >30 C before sunrise! I’ve also been there when the cyclones go through. Amazing explosion of green and wildlife everywhere. Beautiful.

      Death Valley v Marble Bar? No contest.

    Now they claim a year when Arctic ice extent is approaching the “norm”, Antarctic ice and northern hemisphere snow cover are way above normal as the hottest ever ?

    Stretches credibility even among the gullible.
