Absolutely copping a pounding. I guess these new extreme weather events are the new norm. Hard rains gunna fall.

Politicians deny climate change and global warming and don’t prepare, so what could go wrong?

Climate change.

Governments need to begin coordinated programs to temporarily capture excessive floodwaters in upstream tributaries and any other low-lying areas where infrastructure is less of an issue.

Australia is on the front line for climate change, and some parts of it will eventually cease to be habitable as a result, as will, over time, parts of other nations - too hot, cold, wet or dry.

El Niño is a regular event and we've known what climate change will do to our weather. Australia is not the only government that has been complacent in climate-proofing residential areas. Manage water better where it floods. Store it for fire prevention. Deploy solar for energy, not coal. Use your water and sunshine, rather than being a victim of it. Instead of giving France half a billion over the sub contract, maybe they should have spent it on climate defence. They need to get their priorities right.
