Adelaide news February 1, 1933: 'Climate Never Changes' - The Commonwealth Meteorologist (Mr. Watt) smiles when he is asked about what is wrong with the weather, because all the records show that it is normal. "There has been no appreciable climatic change anywhere since the dawn of history," said Mr. Watt today. When people compare the present with the past, they remember only the abnormal.
