Given the general agenda of this site I expect that you think that this is some sure sign that Global warming is upon us but the reality of the Australian experience is that we have very regular droughts here, the shortage of water in the dams of south eastern Queensland has far more to do with a rather rapid increase in our population and the subsequent extra demand on a limited resource than climate change. http://iainhall.wordpress.com/
