I've been debating with some deniers for three days now. I would have given up after the first day because it gets boring, but two guys who really knew their stuff about climate change joined in, and together we wiped the deniers out. They a now bouncing off the walls. What a load of junk their science is, just twigs and dust, I call it.


Over the past few weeks Clover Hogan has found herself crying during the day and waking up at night gripped by panic. The 20-year-old, who now lives in London, grew up in Queensland, Australia, cheekbyjowl with the country’s wildlife, fishing frogs out of the toilet and dodging snakes hanging from the ceiling.
