Back in the day

Remember a long time ago back in the day (last week) when the UK, France, et al were shut down by record snowfall? Nary a mention in the Guardian about global warming, global cooling, or climate change as the cause.

Well, that was then and this is now. A new natural disaster, a new chance for the Guardian to get it "right":

Bushfires are an annual natural event in Australia, but this year a combination of scorching weather, drought and tinder-dry bush has created prime conditions and raised pressure on the government's climate change policy.
No word on any raised pressure for journalistic consistency.

Update: Paris Match pins the the blame in Australia as well, le réchauffement climatique.
