"The climate changes naturally. There's no evidence that this is the result of man-made actions. Therefore, we should do nothing."

No. Even if you don't believe the overwhelming scientific research, then you should at least recognise that this is a problem, even if it isn't man-made. Even if this is just a natural variation, the effects of it is still the same, and to do nothing is stupidity personified. The Australian climate makes it more susceptible to climate changes, so you can think of it as an early warning system. Regardless of your political leanings - please, please, please actually think of the consequences of these changes. The science on that is pretty clear.

Australian temperature records shoddy inaccurate unreliable. Just another hot summer as usual. But if you want to jump on the climate change bandwagon and tax the population more for essential services then this is the train to be on .

Serrano: “Days of extreme heat and heatwaves will become even more frequent and severe in Australia." What happened to human-caused global warming?

No idea what you're talking about here. The very sentence before the one you quoted clearly answers your question.

"Even if this is just a natural variation, the effects of it is still the same, and to do nothing is stupidity personified." Agree 100%. We have to take steps to deal with inevitable climate change.

... for the second part of your comment, I've given you a thumbs-up "Good" rating on your comment. I wish more people would have also done so... Right now, we need action to address clear issues that a warming climate is causing and is projected to cause.
