Sunny days, rainy days …

Many of the old classic pop-songs used the term “sunny days” to represent happiness and “rainy days” to mean sadness. This may change soon.

Many English people, looking for happiness, intend to emigrate to Australia, the land of sunshine. On arriving they may find that “fings ain’t what they used to be”.

Australia still has plenty of sunshine, but ‘happiness? Well. The Australians, who have had six years of very low rainfall, are now suffering the worst drought for over a hundred years.

This is having a bad effect on the economy and, on average, seven farmers a month are committing suicide.

The Australian government is now trying to invest in clean technology with the aim of reducing carbon emissions. Let us hope that they are not doing too little, too late.

Maybe they should have been signatories to the Kyoto agreement in the first place.
