Whoops!
Misread your post Gregor. (Suffering a cracked molar on new years day..)

Yeah, Australia should be an interesting bell weather to how climate change impacts will affect the politics.

It always was a sun-burnt land. If they get any warmer, it's going to be untenable. They'll all end up bobbing in the surf, watching their towns burn down. Happening here and there already.

Sounds like they need a big fire break around each town. Like a kilometer-wide band of solar panels maybe. Then they would have more power to desalinate seawater.

My experience with Australia is that 70% of the population likes this s***, and the other 30% are horrified.


What can we do to help you stop screaming?

bell weather
That's bellwether. A wether is a castrated ram. They put a bell around his neck and he leads the flock of sheep.
A bellwether is a sign of what's to come. usually some nutless assh*le leading a bunch of witless sheep.

He's usually leading them into the slaughterhouse, but then gets to slip out the side door so he can do it again.

Unfortunately neither the weather, nor the environment, are going to get cleaned up. I think this is a given. There has been a lot of talk, plans, agreements, promises, etc. but, in reality, not a whole lot to actually fix anything. This being the case eventually the geo-engineers will begin 'fixing' things. An interesting aside to this is the simple fact that, if they screw up, we will all die!

If you are not familiar with geo-engineering google "geo engineering" and read all about it.

Australian PM Scott Morrison,tries to get ahead of his incompetent handling of Australia’s bush fires as only someone who cut his teeth in the tourism and hospitality industry knows how. He made a cheap ass video with poorly chosen, royalty free music trac accompaniment:

The public response so far:



Someone recently quipped the world is now being run by property managers, tourist and hospitality consultants and military contractors.

Feels about right..
