Heat Wave but no Global Warming?
Several stories on major Australian media sites about extra deaths possibly caused by the Victorian heatwave in January.
But so far, not a single mention of CO2 or global warming.
Quite rightly, of course, because individual weather events, even unusual weather events and their consequences, should not be blamed on global patterns without some evidence that the two are connected.
But it is hard to imagine that some journalists, even a year ago, would not automatically have claimed these deaths as adding weight to the global warming thing.
