North Queensland floods (Weather)

This is a good article that discusses the political and societal attitude to climate change in the face of mounting weather disasters.

It includes a quote from the Deputy-Prime Minister denying climate change even as he visited the site of one of the many disasters to hit Australia in the last month.

Ironically, one of the places that is being hardest hit by climate change, Queensland, is also the strong-hold state of those most in denial. Their argument seems to be that as climate change crunches their economy, that's even more reason to ignore it coz they need more coal mines to provide jobs in the area.
