Some 26 daily rainfall records were broken at weather stations across Australia over the 2012-13 summer. Five river-height records were broken and there was major flooding throughout south-east Queensland and northern NSW. "Extreme rainfall is consistent with the type of events scientists expect to see more often in a warming climate," the report says.

With Australia getting that hot, I can see why there is anger. But europe, Russia, the U.S. & Africa been smokin' more than mary jane, too.

The Arctic ain't smokin', but lots of permafrost is cooking up methane on lands & methane clathrates are percolating, & bubbling in the Ocean.

The Earth is a whirling place!
