Dr Nelson, do you really think playing me-too on climate change with the government is really a good idea? Its true that people are concerned about water restrictions, but I sceptical climate change has much to do with it. Have a look at the graph below from the Bureau of Meteorology.
I don't see anything unusual there. Maybe the water restrictions have to do with something else. Like state Labor governments poor planning and general incompetence. You might want to have a chat with some of your state Liberal leaders like Mr O'Farrell about it. I really think some healthy skepticism would be useful, especially if it allows you and your state leaders to attack Labor.
