Wine Even if you don’t care about climate change, the environment or the polar bears, this should be a reason to unite eco-warriors and climate sceptics alike: Australian vineyards are in crisis as rivers are drying up! As someone who appreciates a good wine (especially a good Australian Shiraz) I was rather alarmed to read this news in the Telegraph this morning.

Apparently almost half of Australia’s wine industry is facing disaster as a drought caused by climate change and the over-use of Australia’s biggest river system threatens to turn vines to dust. It is more important than ever that we address the damaging effects of climate change; my nightly glass is in peril!
