Global Warming: Polar Bear Watch, Australia

by | 14th, November 2007

AS reported: “The Melbourne Walk Against Warming held on 11 November 2007 two weeks before the Australian Federal election attracted between 30,000 (police estimate) and up to 50,000 people (SBS news). Over 150,000 people marched around Australia against the lack of action on climate change by our political leaders including 30,000 people in Sydney, and more than 20,000 in Adelaide.”

Weather: balmy.

And the polar bear. Well, only a drawing.

But the polar bears may yet live…in Austria. As the Mail reports:

“This time last year the slopes were green Alpine meadows with hardly a snowflake in sight.

“But heavy snowfalls over the past week — with more forecast for the next few days — mean that dozens of resorts are now enjoying their best start to the season in decades.

“So far, the heaviest falls have been in Austria, where Kitzbühel opened last weekend a month ahead of schedule and earlier than ever before.”
