Drought and flood hit Australasia

Sign of the times: Drought in New Zealand, flood in Australia (after a decade of drought). Since this cartoon was published — in the Manawatu Standard of January 13 — parts of New Zealand have also been hit by heavy rain and flooding. It's all a bit depressing, as a constant cycle of drought and flood eventually creates a desert. Stand by for rocketing food prices.
