IT was so hot in the South Australian outback town of Oodnadatta yesterday that the local servo stopped selling petrol.
The Outback town has been sweltering through one of its great heatwaves with the temperature soaring above 40 degrees every day this year, reaching a peak of 48.2 degrees yesterday.
"The ground, the building, everything is so hot, you walk outside and you feel it's going to burn you," Pink Roadhouse owner Lynnie Plate said.
Mrs Plate said the Roadhouse couldn't serve unleaded fuel after midday because it was vapourising and wouldn't pump in the extreme heat.

Titles a bit misleading to say the least. As If not been able to sell petrol is a feedback mechanism were a serious issue.

The title is to question the bigger picture.
For example: It gets too hot to use petrol, where some say that using petrol is a big cause of the earth heating up.  ==> self-correcting.
Im not implying in any form that the earth is this sentient being that takes decisions to self correct. It's just a proces.

Get it?

If the world stopped pumping fuel permanently then it might self correct over time.  One country laying off one summer won't do it.

Maybe, maybe not. Climate change is always happening, the human caused portion of it could be stopped, maybe, but you'd have to get people to actually acknowledge human's can and do contribute to climate change, as does every other living thing, continent, river, ocean, etc.
