Melbourne Heatwave

I saw the 7.30 Report last night where the Victorian Government is blaming the public transport breakdowns on the heat.

Another expert mentioned that it will need a lot of funding to address the issues, as the number of heatwave days will only increase with global warming. (Another example of the financial cost of NOT acting on climate change).

Meanwhile the ACF has put out a media release about this, which includes a CSIRO projection where Melbourne's "Days over 35°C" are predicted to triple.
