I wonder how ‘their’ ABC managed to work this one out. Which climate change group filled them in on this. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-01-13/eucalypts-suffering-from-changing-climate-study/5197684
Just like how the BBC behaved, perhaps .
Not too far away and ‘their’ ABC will be suffering from climate change too. The kind that involves removal of taxpayer owned wallets from their possession.
Professor Clive McAlpine moaned: “The future is looking grim for some species of Australian eucalyptus trees, as they feel the impact of more severe heatwaves, droughts and floods.”
Has this bloke been in a bubble? That’s a great description of Australia’s weather. Just add fire and there you have it. I’d be more worried about a fungus disease now spreading through NSW and up to Queensland. Nothing to do with climate change so it will never get an ABC mention. Enough said: Biography. Associate Professor McAlpine‘s research is at the interface of landscape ecology, biodiversity conservation and climate change … at UQ’s Global Change Institute! Now that’s a bubble:
From the architect. The Global Change Institute is a $32 million building designed by HASSELL which meets the world’s most advanced levels of sustainability.…
Of course, ‘their’ ABC can’t help themselves, mention the two words climate change, and it’s prime time news!
UPDATE, so, when does the spinning start?: […] But, when global warming becomes difficult to sell (because the average person sees a snow-plow clearing the streets on a below-zero evening) the leftists do what they do best… They begin to spin.
“This weather is unprecedented!” they scream. Of course a little bit of research, again, puts a muzzle on their alarmism. While left-wing bloggers might be prepared to showcase a frozen Niagara Falls as proof of “extreme” weather patterns, similar photos from the 1890’s, 1910’s and 1930’s dull their argument of extremism.
Check this out Professor, ought to dull your argument a bit eh?: January 16-20, 1908 – Melbourne Was Over 40C Every Day
Apparently BOM did not have a shortage of crayons in 1908.
