Heat burns down on the Cape - Stellenbosch rages to 48C
SHOOT: Personally it is very disconcerting for me to discover that the Cape is experiencing these heat waves. My experience in Australia was similar - heatwaves in Sydney and thousands of kilometres away, in Perth, as well as in Melbourne, and to the north, in places like Broome. I'd suggest that journalists make a circuit of several countries to determine that actually, very many countries are experiencing the simultaneous reality of a warming world. The problem is our information is fragmented and discontinuous.
