Mad Max Runs out of Desert

Climate change ain't what it used to be. Just ask Mad Max.

Poor Mad Max, he can’t catch a break. Right when a handy drought was helping climate alarmists take over Australia as well as lending perfect scenery for the Road Warrior to shoot his next film, mother nature comes along and messes everything up. She’s like that. (Don’t tell the alarmists, mind you.)

MAD Max 4: Fury Road, which authorities fought to get filmed in Australia, is now being shot in Africa.

It was initially planned that Broken Hill, the background for Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior in 1981, would once again be the setting.

But Max, it seems, is yet another victim of climate change.

After a decade of drought reduced the area around Broken Hill to an arid lifeless wasteland – precisely the kind of conditions Max enjoys – rain earlier this year has made the desert bloom.

The Herald Sun has been told director George Miller was reluctant to change location, plus it will cost even more to shoot in Namibia.

But last month it emerged the production was heading there.

Now, wouldn’t you know it, it has started raining in Namibia too.

While the people of Broken Hill might be happy the drought has finally broken, Mad Max, as his name suggests, is not one of them.

In fact Namibia has had its heaviest rainfall in 120 years. It seems like there’s just never a post-apocalyptic wasteland around when you need one.
