The recent plethora of natural disasters in Australia has reminded of the sensitivity of Australia to climate change.

A recent article by Crispin Hull in the Canberra Times collected some of my thoughts, although I believe it was printed with a much less controversial title than the on-line version!

Whether we like it or not, the forecast is for a potential increase in the frequency and severity of natural disasters such as cyclones, bushfires and drought.

How are we going to respond? Fatalistic complacency or thoughtful action?

I hope this makes you think!
