Is this payback time for our neglect of the environment? xx

CHERYL GIBBS: You don’t have to be a royalist to love the royal family these days

Have your say

I’m not exactly sure what’s going on with the world’s climate at the moment, but if you’ve seen the movie 2012 you may be feeling the same as me – panicked!

On our trip to America, we flew to New York and I’ve never seen weather like it.

The snow was as high as a car and the whole city was completely covered. Within days Matt and I suffered either frostbite or severe wind burn. It was bitterly cold.

We were lucky to get one of the last flights home – a few hours later another blizzard hit the Big Apple and all flights were cancelled.

Then there was the news about the cyclone hitting my home state of Queensland in Oz - despite this being their summer. Are we now paying the price for years of neglect of the environment?
