Where I had previously talked about the drip, drip drip, snap progression of natural systems, the rate of the evidence is now coming in more like a drumbeat of information that will be seen in hindsight as a truism.

I offer for your consideration the following:

NOAA’s current state of the climate report, establishing 2012 as a record for temperatures and chaos related to entropy; and,

The Australian Bureau Meteorology has been required to add two new colours to its palette to forecast temperatures over Australia. Now, they may have revised yesterday’s map based on the actual (record) temperatures achieved vs. what was forecast, but have a look at the map of temperatures achieved, and rest assured, they will still need the new colours again soon and regularly in the future.
