Floods and Cyclones are not only good, but essential

Why the floods and cyclones are happening to Australia right now – In my opinion Australia has been faring particularly well in the big picture of these time of Global Financial Crisis. We have a fantastic resource industry, we have some of the best weather I’ve ever experienced in the 31 countries I’ve been to and lived in. We have an exceedingly strong dollar at the moment and we have peace and security which people in other countries would die for.

In my opinion, these events are happening to Australia right now because we can handle it and to balance the global picture: not to Iceland who had one of the biggest bank crashes ever, not to India, Pakistan or China who have their fair share of natural disasters, not to Hungary which had a tsunami of toxic sludge to deal with, not in Europe where they’ve been having massive winter freezes killing many, not to America who have their political, housing, healthcare and other major challenges, not to Egypt who have millions of people turning out to oust a president they don’t trust.

But I ask all you Aussies or fortunate few on the shores of this magic country, would you rather have the problems from other countries or live anywhere else? I know I wouldn’t.
