I was just going to say the same thing!
Many conservative politicians around the world believe Global Warnming is hoax designed to weaken their economic progress.
Or just part of a cyclical weather pattern.

I do not know the Ausie PM, but I would not be surprised
is he or his advusers think along that line.

And the tourney is still going to start a week later which won't help matters.

Who knows, in a few years from now they might not be able to hold the tournament at all, at least not in its current format.

It's been hot in Melbourne but around Australia it has actually not been very warm at all. Sydney has been very mild all summer so let's not get political here.

Howard doesn't sign the Kyoto Protocol for political and economical reasons but Australia in general is actually quite progressive environmental and State governments are doing a lot and our numbers are better than most.

Howard's a tool but I'd rather a puppet than Russia's evil goblin king Putin.

Are you kidding
This summer has been hotter than last summer... which was hotter than the summer before.
Where I live since summer began we have had a handfull of days below 30 degrees.... It was 40 degrees a few days ago... and its about 36 degrees today. Lol!

The climate has been .01 below the national average. Queensland max temps were their lowest since 2000 and it snowed heavily in southeastern NSW over the Christmas period. There have been least number of days over 30 degrees in Sydney for the last 16 years. In other words...no i'm not kidding ;)

it's been STRANGE in sydney

Some spring days got up to 40 degrees it was crazy heat, except this summer hasn't been bad at all. Strange weather patterns, some snow, thunderstorms, still bushfires. its very strange, but its definitely due to the enhanced greenhouse effect.

:confused: I read somewhere that Australia had the highest per capita emissions of greeenhouse gases in the world because of coal-fired electricity :scratch:
