Climate change row a no-brainer

THE climate change debate grinds on (Write Back, February 19). The reason given for the current spate of floods is the Arctic is melting fast, thus altering the flow of the jetstream, and more moisture is being sucked up from the Atlantic.

We were told today that the Antarctic is not melting anything like as fast. We in the southern hemisphere are yet to suffer the same climate changes.

90% of us live in the northern hemisphere and with that goes pollution and greenhouse gasses. Sounds like a no-brainer to me.
