"1 in 100-year flood" talk maxes out the bull-shit meter

"Yeah nah don't worry mate, it's a 1 in 100 year flood!" Those were the confident words of conservative politicians around Australia last year as floods ravaged parts of the nations east coast. Evidently, those calculations were just slightly off, as, only 1 year later, more horrific flooding has occurred across the country. Recent reports are showing that the only thing that will take 100 years is for politicians to admit that climate change is contributing to the issue.
