We met Marohasy previously when she made some ahem inaccurate statements.
She is a right wing cultural warrior who is a classic climate change denialist.
She made statements to wit it has been hottest previously than this time. In 1938/9 to be precise using Rutherglen. She also said fires have burnt greater areas.
This intrigued Tamino who then used BOM figures to see if this was correct.
It was not.
As an aside he is really impressed with the BOM database.
