ABSTRACT
The article reports on the political future of Australian prime minister John Howard. The author states that Howard will likely lose the November 2007 elections due to the voting public's association of droughts and water shortages with Howard's skeptical view of climate change and global warming. Although the economy is flourishing, continued droughts may cost Howard the election.
