    • having ICEicles hanging off the oranges in Florida and Iguanas falling out of the trees for the last 2? years I know of..I think YES, it could ,Julie.

      and in the WA/perth item, consider its a rather large city, take away the UHI and it would have been round the 1 to 0 C as well I bet.

  1. Ironic that just days after Australia began implementing their carbon tax to forestall global warming they are hit with extended periods of record cold.
