Back to the alarming future

From the Andrew Bolt Blog, November 21, 2008

Even when the weather changes back to how it was, why, that’s consistent with “climate change” theory, too. Ask University of Southern Queensland professor of climate and water resources Roger Stone, who analyses the meaning of the storms over Brisbane:

But this sort of violent weather activity is consistent with climate change predictions. We’re coming off a long drought in southeast Queensland, and that has been an extreme weather event. Now we’re getting these storms, and they’re also extreme weather events.

And ask Queensland weather bureau spokesman Gavin Holcombe:

But back in the 70s and 80s we did have plenty of Novembers which were very wet indeed. I just think people are now thinking of the sort of dry Novembers that we’ve had over the past decade as the norm, but if you look over the long term, there have been plenty of wet Novembers.

Dryer, wetter, worse-than, same-as – it’s all climate change, because climates always change. Difference is that changes alarm the thermostat generation.

UPDATE

Remember when an absence of rain over Brisbane was evidence of global warming?

Environmental researcher Tim Flannery has warned that Brisbane and Adelaide – home to a combined total of three million people – could run out of water by year’s end.

A year later, let’s check if Brisbane has indeed run out of water:

Brisbane has its coldest October morning since 1976

From CourierMail, October 23, 2008

COLD southerly winds blowing up from the snow-capped Blue Mountains have given Brisbane its coldest October morning in 32 years.

The mercury fell to 10.6 degrees in the City just before 5am, more than five degrees below average for this time of year.

The previous lowest for October was 7.3 degrees in 1976, although Brisbane also recorded 6.3 degrees in October in 1899 at a now-disused weather station.

Amberley had an even colder start waking up to 6 degrees and Stanthorpe shivered on just two degrees.
