Now students, get out your world map coloring book and crayons

Every time I turn around, it seems that temperatures somewhere are reaching extremes. Over the last week or so there were numerous stories about Australia and their heat wave. In fact, according to Lori Zimmer over at Inhabitat, you’ll need a new color. The story is entitled “Australia’s Scorching Temperatures Spark New Colors on Meteorology Map“.

Add to that the story over at New Scientist entitled  “Sand Tsunami Pictured Striking Australian coast “and it’s clear that Australian’s are in a tough place at the moment. Hard to believe that according to Tim Flannery, in the book Here on Earth: A Natural History of the Planet there are some very lush, almost rainforest like land in western Australia.
