ABC misinforms on Sydney UHI and fires

The article starts with some reasonable points about UHI in crowded new suburbs but then quoting an academic claims the BoM station sites do not reflect the UHI completely missing the fact the breezes and wind do blow and UHI affected air will move through the thermometer enclosures affecting BoM published weather observations.

Then further down quoting another academic in a para starting… [Studies following the 2019–20 bushfire season found that climate change had made fires a conservative 30 per cent more likely.] Statements are made about the 2019/20 fire season amazingly forgetting to quote the BoM’s Sep 2019 account of “Sudden Stratospheric Warming” over Antarctica and predictions for the coming 2019/2020 summer drought and fire season.
Surely Australian taxpayers deserve better than experts amnesia on this scale.
