While the major parties are bickering over who will stop the boats (see this blog for a couple of great posts on this issue, also see the latest Media Watch for the sort of ignorant bigotry they are pandering to, and the refugee council of Australia for more info, and the graph at the bottom of this post *), they are ignoring climate change. Sadly it hasn’t gone away though, see the following links:
Climate Progress on unprecedented hot weather in Russia.
Michael Tobis on how much this can be attributed to AGW.
Watching the Deniers on the extent of the tragedy in Russia.
Hot Topic on the massive island of ice that broke off Greenland.
This Sunday you can get out to remind the major parties that climate change is still an issue by taking part in the Walk Against Warming, it’s at 11am at Victoria Square.
