Australian heatwave memo - GET USED TO IT!
Aussie heatwave subsides, fires contained
Temperatures in the Australian cities of Melbourne and Adelaide have fallen after days of searing heat in the densely populated southwest region that has been blamed for a spate of sudden deaths. Dubbed a 'once in a century' event by the local media, the heatwave has been blamed for a series of deaths in Adelaide and Melbourne and has disrupted power supplies, leaving hundreds of thousands of homes in darkness.
And you better get used to it - with Global Warming caused by human pollution, we will see more extreme weather events and we will see warmer temperatures, so 'once in a century' heatwaves will start occurring once every decade, and with Kevin Rudds gutless move to bow down to industry with a pathetic 5-15% reduction in emmissions, I hope Australians start to love living in an oven.
