factless BoM … and their media shills at ABC

The bias and facts-less reporting goes on and on and on. BoM’s lack of historical knowledge is only a tidge better than ‘their’ ABC. First ever July cyclone for the region off Queensland: Pull the other leg, it’s got bells on. It didn’t take much for these amateur meteorologists to show them up for what they are. Clueless.

Forecaster David Grant on the ABC:

“We’ve never had a July tropical cyclone in the Queensland region before.

Australia has only had one other officially declared July cyclone, which formed off Western Australia in 1996.

The official tropical cyclone season runs from November 1 to April 30.”

There’s been at least a dozen, including some quite severe. Go and have a look. As ‘Another Ian’ suggested at WUWT about the previous post, they must be suffering from ‘Climate Parisitis’.
