I don't care what you say...
The climate change opponents out there (you know who you are) say that the variations in climate are either imagined or just the natural rhythms of life.
1. This September in Melbourne was the driest since records started in 1855.
2. The average inflows to Melbourne's reservoirs during 1913 - 1996 was 615 GL/year. The average inflow for the last ten years was 385 GL/year. Reservoir levels are running at 34.5% full.
I don't care what you say, the climate is changing.
And from Melbourne's perspective, for the worse.
And is it man's fault? Almost certainly.
And are our politicians (yours too) too gutless and 're-election driven' to tackle the problem on their shift?
