Wayne Swan, Treasurer, has been making preparations for Carbogeddon:
Up on the roof today to check it’s in good nick in case the sky falls in tomorrow as @TonyAbbottMHR says it will
Rob Mitchell, MP for McEwen, on the East coast, did notice some strange natural occurences:
OMG its dark and cold outside Very quiet Could it be the result of Carbon oh wait its midnight #carbongeddon
Mike Kelly, MP for Eden Monaro
I wish everyone all the best tomorrow. Eyes of the world on Whyalla. Can only pray it is quick and relatively painless.
But the one place in Australia that all eyes were on, was Whyalla, South Australia:
These series of screens shots from the Whyalla Webcam, show the minutes leading up to Carbogeddon, and moments after. And nothing happened. Whyalla was not, as Tony Abbott predicted, wiped off the map.
Trades minister, Dr Craig Emerson, who drove into Whyalla moments before Carbogeddon, managed to make a twitter report
