When Hell Freezes Over

The people of Hell, Michigan, USA are very busy completing all the tasks that they said they would not do until when Hell freezes over. Lake Michigan, Chicago, certainly looks cold. What a fab photo, from AFP.


Meanwhile Australia has had its hottest summer January ever, but it is nothing to do with climate change, and our government's head in the sand approach is nothing to do with the coal mining giant Adani donating AU$1.2 billion to the coffers of the Labor, National and Liberal Parties, along with One Nation.

    1. Gattina, I really don't like those extreme climates. I heard it was minus 37 in New York. We were so hot when we were there.

  2. That's an incroyable sight! I saw a #45 interview a few days ago where he quipped 'where's global warming when we need it!' Bloody lunatic!

    1. Grace, most politicians are intelligent, in spite of what comes out of their mouths, but in his case, he probably thinks like that.

  3. Echoing the comment above. And appalled at our own government's inaction on the issue. Adani still looks likely to get the go ahead. Hiss and spit.

    1. EC, the Adani business seems to be such a disgrace, but we can at least now understand what the motivator has been.

  4. That is a good photo from the other side of the world.
    Let's hope we don't follow with a record cold winter!

    1. Margaret, we hope not, although a very wet winter would be welcome in most of Australia.
