And the Bureau of Meteorology has formally declared Australia has now entered an El Niño climate pattern, two months after the World Meteorological Organisation made its own El Niño declaration, raising the prospect of record-breaking global temperatures.

Right across the nation, the sweaty guys are already opening up the pores, regardless of how good the air conditioning is on public transport or in their cars.

“She’s friggin warm out there!” said Clint, the 54-year-old sweater from way back.
“This isn’t even the worst of it they reckon”
When asked what his plans were to escape the heat this summer, Clint says he’s gonna be going to the movies quite a lot.
“I’ve been holding off on Barbieheimer until she’s stinkin” he says.
“Otherwise I might just keep the fridge ajar and fill up an old Ajax spray n white bottle with water”
