Australian Prime Minister announces carbon dioxide tax and temperatures in Australia plummet!

Wow, Australian PM Julia (or Juliar as she is called in Aus) Gillard announces her carbon dioxide tax to stop global warming and temperatures drop! Can we cancel the tax now Juliar.

Via Weatherzone

Much of southern Queensland experienced its coldest night in several years as temperatures plumetted five to 10 degrees below average.

The coldest area was inland, where frost was severe. In the Maranoa, Roma dipped to minus five degrees, their coldest night in 14 years.

Now that Julia Gillard has stopped global warming, we have seen some immediate benefits, like the decrease in crime in the Australian capital of Canberra…

Canberra: too cold for crime
Cold weather over the weekend has helped keep the number of criminal incidents a little lower than usual, as people opted to stay indoors.

Al Gore must be in Australia.

I know, and Tony Windsor has been given information to refute
AGW and what other countries are doing, zilch, to cut carbon emissions. He’s taken no notice preferring the climate commissioner’s report ‘The Critical Decade’ that had a disclaimer on p2. And Ross Garnaut’s economic report as against the Productivity
Commission report. But what can you expect from Julia G and her Fabian Society mates, and the Green mad hatters who believe in a one world government and redistribution of wealth.

From one who works oudoors could we please find some way to increase global warming, It’s freezing out here.

I’m not sure the notion of having the machinery to tax emissions is all wrong. Logically if we can lower temperature by constraining emissions we can increase it by increasing emissions.Therefore the tax policy is more of a thermostat than a simple tax to reduce temperature rises. Therefore the policy puts an end to global climate variation not merely warming. Simply dial up the required temperature, set the green house gas incentives and off you go to the beach, ski fields or anywhere else you choose to spend your time.

This carbon tax will not reduce carbon emissions in Oz or anywhere else in the world. The global economy is plummeting though and carbon taxing in the EU has been useless to change temps or carbon emissions. Now Al Gore is on another tirade he must be feeling the pinch in his money belt?

This is what has happened to Australian weather since the La Nina kicked in during the middle of 2010.

Spring 2010 – wettest spring on record and below average mean temp.
Summer 2010/11- 2nd wettest summer on record and below average mean temp.
Autumn 2011 – coldest autumn on record (well, since 1950).
June 2011 – below average mean temp.

If the La Nina picks up again, we could have a below average temp year, the first since 2000 – that was the last time we had a lengthy La Nina.

So where’s the correlation with CO2 since it has been rising about 2ppm per year this decade?
