The current frenzy of linking bush fires in Australia to climate change epitomises climate change hysteria.
Australian Green MP Adam Bandt was quick to hype the link and even accused Abbott of putting on a fire uniform for a stunt, despite Abbott's longstanding service to the volunteer fire brigade.
Sky News Australia has also given air time to Tim Flannery's axed Climate Council (which annoys me). Sky News tends to favour AGW despite conspiracy theories that any media outlet Rupert Murdoch owns is biased against it. (I believe Murdoch owns half of Foxtel, maker of Sky News Australia.)
