Professor Ian Plimer is out of his depth…..says Tim Flannery!
14 December 2011
Oh dear, Tim Flannery on Australian TV (Channel 10, The Project) saying Professor Ian Plimer is “out of his depth” with regards to his skeptical views on man-made climate change. Hmmm let’s have a look at Tim Flannery’s failed climate predictions below and then tell me who is out of their depth!!!
In 2005, Flannery predicted Sydney’s dams could be dry in as little as two years because global warming was drying up the rains, leaving the city “facing extreme difficulties with water”.
Check Sydney’s dam levels today: 73 per cent. Hmm. Not a good start.
In 2008, Flannery said: “The water problem is so severe for Adelaide that it may run out of water by early 2009.”
Check Adelaide’s water storage levels today: 77 per cent.
In 2007, Flannery predicted cities such as Brisbane would never again have dam-filling rains, as global warming had caused “a 20 per cent decrease in rainfall in some areas” and made the soil too hot, “so even the rain that falls isn’t actually going to fill our dams and river systems … “.
Check the Murray-Darling system today: in flood. Check Brisbane’s dam levels: 100 per cent full.
