Australia Heatwave Jan 2019 (General)

Yes, I saw that article also and was going to post it, haha! It does seem to be more data that climate change may currently be going into overdrive. The heat here is totally nuts but somehow it's all business as usual. With the frog in the boiling water analogy, this is the point where the frog should be saying, 'Fuck! That's fucking hot! Get me out of here!''

Have noticed being back in Australia, and looking at properties, how big a deal real estate commercialism has become. The advertising is everywhere - major sponsors of big sporting codes. They're now top level corporate players - with strong vested interest in downplaying climate change. No real estate agent is ever gonna say 'don't buy here coz it's gonna be hammered by coastal erosion or bushfires or typhoons'.

Add them to the oil industry, the building industry, mining, cars, airlines, sugar etc - that's a stack of powerful groups who aren't going to be leading the charge against climate change
