The irony isn't lost on us.
As the G20 Summit, the first in years without climate change on the agenda, is due to begin in Brisbane, the country has been hit with a fierce heatwave. Prime Minister Tony Abbott will be sweating.
The Australian Prime Minister announced the Summit would not focus on climate change and "what might happen in 16 years' time", but would instead focus on jobs and economic growth. So in what could be seen as a show of support from the weather gods, Queensland will sizzle through "severe to extreme heatwave conditions" over the weekend, the Bureau of Meteorology said.
