>Your weather is difficult for me to grasp. It seems very spiky as in extreme. My guess is this been an extended La Nina.

Yes. With other things no doubt. The la nina has come to an end, they say.

>When I read McKibben he mentions Australia often, but I am not sure why.

Because he comes here and because we are a canary in the coal mine?

>I think it has to do with so much land mass being north of the equator.

Of course you meant south.

>I'm trying to grok this all....

A new verb!

>Is it beautiful (and maybe not too humid)?

Australia, being (I think) the oldest continent, does not have the majestic landforms of newer continents. We make up for it in plants and animals. When I go to other places I feel the plants and animals are kind of all of one group, and Australia's are part of another group. There are, for example, marsupials in other parts of the world farther away from us than New Guinea like maybe Madagascar. Australia was once joined to South America....I don't know if that has any relevance.

Where I live is humid but cool. The further south and west you go the less humid it is.
