As reports emerge that NSW Liberals have called on the Turnbull government to conduct public debates about climate change – including whether the science is settled – we thought it might be a good time to publish a collection of today’s many, many Tweets about the record March heat in Australia – and one from Washington DC, for good measure.
In Melbourne, for instance, it was 29°C at 1am… and at 7am – marking the hottest March night on record. And considering some of the views higher up among the federal Liberals – that digging up and shipping coal to India is good for humanity – we’ve also included a Tweet from Fairfax journo Michael West, from Delhi.

Another #Sydney heat stat of note: City today marked 20 consec days of 27C+ (Previous record, set twice, was 12 days). (+ perhaps 6 to come)
