    Thanks Bill, an interesting read, especially the comments - it's always good to see what our USA sisters and brothers make of the situation.

    I do take umbrage with the following, however:

    "This is the main reason so much scientific brainpower in research institutes across Australia is being directed at studying weather and climate there, with massive funding support from the federal government."

    Oh really?

    Don't believe everything you read.

    at this stage of the game - the choice is where in the roller coaster you sit.

    would most of us go for the front seats?
    i think we would.

    where do we find ourselves - in the front seats.

    it might be worth considering that we get the deal microseconds before our peers in the back seats...
    and
    that they are fairly well limited in their vision - to looking at us.

    so, in the interests of morale - i'm for a major scream, and look of appropriate terror.
