Instead of Pam, maybe they should rename this event "Typhoon Tony Abbot," after the PM of Australia. Abbot has, with malice aforethought, spat upon any action his government might have taken to combat climate change, including its cavalier repeal of a carbon tax which would probably have alleviated the threat. Instead, he seems prepared to see the incineration of his own citizens in wildfires and now this disaster. Maybe it's easier to pay some conscience money such as he has done for Vanuatu, in the form of bandaid relief aid, rather than do anything that might help more in the long-term. Have a nice day, "Typhoon Tony!" www.PlanetInPeril.ca
