Book of the Week
Sunburnt Country: The History and Future of Climate Change in Australia by Jöelle Gergis. Climate change deniers keep telling us that the weather has always been variable (they know the difference between climate and weather but it suits them to ignore it). This book is the work of a scientist who has investigated changes in weather patterns and climate in Australia over the last few hundred years and guess what - things are getting worse. Weather events are now closer together and more damaging and the cause is clear - it's because humans have been doing things to change the climate.
