Thank you Chris!

What kind of crap is this? There's no option to vote no.

The comments are a joke, nobody will read them. I refuse to participate in such a thing.

Hello poto,

For the External website: showyourvote.org Go to:
http://www.showyourvote.org/vote?skin=mini

Fill in the spaces CORRECTLY and click on "SUBMIT".

My understanding is that Google won't display a working "submit" button if your I.P. (which they see) doesn't match where you say you come from on the form - otherwise the votes could be of doubtful authenticity.

Hello all,

One of the political parties in Australia basically believes any alleged affect by human activity on Climate Change is a myth ~ this is the party backed by coal miners, transport firms and graziers.

But things are coming closer to home now ~ not just extreme temperatures, but towns running out of water for the first time since european settlement:

Emergency water trucked into Australia's Queensland

Makes you think, hey?

Aus is getting hit hard, already, and things have only just started to warm up.
Follow Ben and move to Tassie! :P
Hope you can all convince the opposition parties on this one, though.

If the cold and hot weather becomes more extreme here, I'll go up north to escape winter, Chris, and down south to escape summer, Ben.

Can you send me some of your global warming?

I woke up to snow and freezing temps outside today, and I'd like it gone soon. Please send warming ASAP!

Yep - that's part of the possible scenarios of Climate Change.
