Heatwave, climate change link simplistic: Truss| Climate Change
Acting opposition leader Warren Truss says it is ''too simplistic'' to link the current heatwave and fires to climate change.

In Brisbane on Wednesday, Mr Truss acknowledged the record heatwave, but said Australia's climate was changeable, with hot times and cold times.

''The reality is, it's being utterly simplistic to suggest that we have these fires because of climate change,'' he said.

Like mad millenarians, Greens view the Australian heatwave as punishment for Aussies' backward behaviour and beliefs – Telegraph Blogs
There is something very ugly about the commentary on Australia's heatwave. There's almost a palpable sense of glee among some green-leaning commentators that this coal-exporting, climate-change-denying nation is now being punished with fire. The message seems to be that Aussies deserve this scorching weather; they brought the hotness upon themselves through their temerity, through daring to exploit their country's myriad natural resources and, even worse, daring to question the gospel of climate change.
