Just to put that number into context:
- Two million years ago ‘humans’ were new in the world.
- Two million months ago modern man appeared for the first time.
- Two million days ago Stonehenge was under construction.
- Two million hours ago the First Fleet set off from Portsmouth for Australia. (We’ve got their observations).
Two million weather observations ago oldWeather-Arctic was already on its way, and our mountain of vital data is now looking really impressive.
