A remarkable turn-around, in April, we will see not one area in Australia under drought declaration for at least a decade. Many inches or millimetres of rain have ‘Flannery-ed’ all over Australia, filling dams, wetlands and rivers, all supposed to be dry according to Flannery, Australia’s Chief Scaremonger for the Green/Labor’s Climate Change Department.
Farmers pockets fortunately have filled and bank loans have been repaid or brought up to date across a huge area, despite current flooding along some rivers. Record crop yields across much of Australia last year gave the lie to all the CSIRO, BoMand Government forecasts.
This drought may never break
January 4, 2008
IT MAY be time to stop describing south-eastern Australia as gripped by drought and insteadaccept the extreme dry as permanent, one of the nation’s most senior weather experts warned yesterday.
“Perhaps we should call it our new climate,” said the Bureau of Meteorology’s head of climate analysis, David Jones.
Desalination plants are idle in the East, yet still costing huge sums of money due to idiotic decisions of ideological governments, who listened to Flannery instead of Bolt. Similar costly decisions are still being made.
