You really think that's true? Seems to me a lot of the early work on climate change was done in Europe & the U.S

Australia is one of the world's worst per capita greenhouse gas polluters, due to its heavy use of coal-fired power.

Had to start laughing at this comment China, and the USA are far heavier polluters Australia producers nothing in comparison. It takes more than just Coal fired power stations to cause pollution.

And yet true according to available data.

Of course, given Australia's smaller population compared to the USA and China, the total amount of CO2 emitted is much smaller. I'm not sure whether the placing of the sentence in the article was intended to imply that local CO2 emissions have an effect on local weather. I've only read of total effects of CO2 on global climate.

Local or regional weather has nothing to do with climate. At least that’s what the Left usually says whenever there is another snowstorm at whatever city is hosting a global warming confab. Besides, in America the extreme cold it is currently experiencing is inexplicably cited as evidence of global warming. By this “logic” the higher average temperatures in Australia could just as easily be proof of impending global cooling.

It’s gotten to the point where anytime the temperature changes either up or time from one day to the next, it is proof the sky is falling - which for some reason requires full on socialism to save the world from Al Gores prophecied end of days.
