Australia in trouble?

Postby Madison » Mon Jul 07, 2008 1:06 am

Interesting read about their upcoming weather:

http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20080706/sc_afp/australiaclimatedrought;_ylt=AjJwa8U9wEC_HXNQQ9ERMccszJV4

And this is just too funny:

Rainfall, which has been falling since the 1950s -- partly due to climate change -- is also likely to decline with southern Australia


Rain didn't fall there before the 1950's? :-B :*)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

We've only just had a 10+ year drought.

"What's clear is that the cycle of drought is going to be more regular and deeper than ever."

Time to move back to New Zealand? :-? :-D

Funny... I read that to say that rain hadn't stopped coming down since the 50s. :-B

Fret for your koala and
Fret for your vegemite and
Fret for your bushmen and
Fret for your kangaroos and
Fret for your dingos and
Fret for your Maccas and
Fret for your wombat and
Fret for your grog.

I want what you've been smoking.

I would imagine (because I don't know) that licking someone's dirty butt hole would be tastier then eating Vegemite. Maybe Mookie can enlighten us :-D :-D :-D :-b :-b :-b ;-7 ;-7 ;-7 ;-7 ;-7 ;-7
Marmite is so much better.

Yeah but only 90% of them are right. :-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
