    “All temperature anomalies are calculated with respect to the average over the 1961 to 1990 reference period.”

    WOW! So this is relative to 30 years that included a lot of cold years…..shall we chip in to a collection for their longjohns? 😉

    I’ve spent part of the night (sunday) yet again mopping up my downstairs granny flat. That’s the 3rd time this month and the 6th time this year.
    Even now (6:30am) I’m wearing track pants and long sleeved flannel shirt.

    Yes this is weather, it’s back to the 60’s 70’s weather regime.

    Our dams (23 in SE Queensland) are all overflowing. The state govt. has mothballed the billion dollar desal plant, urged on to it by the uber alarmist and failed sage Tim Flannery. If tar n feathering was still in vogue Tim would be a perfect candidate. He has singlehandedly cost this nation billions of dollars.

      Penny Wrong, Greg Climate-bet and Fool-ya Gillard probably deserve the same.

      • Neil says:

        Nope.

        Wong, Rudd, Gillard and Combet need to be jailed for treason against Australia.

        Why? They wanted to sell the country out to the UN.

        Betraying your country is treason.

    Maybe they’ll throw out all the data except for temperature sensors in Bunbury and Rockhampton…then they’ll extrapolate everything else from those stations…

    Steve
    Summer started officially here in Australia on the 1st December, although you wouldn’t know it so far. Been a very cool month to date here in Adelaide.

    You were promised droughts and fires, now it’s cool and rainy. The weather patterns seem very unusual right now, cold in an awful lot of places.

  6. Andy Weiss says:

    Snow in Australia? In the summer? I didn’t know you had big mountains. What level did the snow fall at? Merry Christmas!

  7. Binny says:

    Laugh. I’m in western Queensland – ‘the fridge’ is right I just looked outside to notice my two work dogs sleeping on the lawn in full sun. That is the sort of thing you see in mid-July. Their normal mid-afternoon, mid-December position is in their water troughs with just their noses poking out like a couple of crocodiles.

    P.S. Baa Humbug -Tim Flannery didn’t cost the nation anything it’s the air heads who swallowed his BS whole without cross checking the facts for themselves who cost us the money.
    This is a free country and anybody can spout any crap they like, Flannery had no duty of care to the country or the economy.
    That duty of care was in the hands of our elected representatives and they failed absolutely and totally. They are the ones should be held accountable for that failure and they should not be allowed to buck pass it to Tim Flannery or anyone else.

    Its pretty much normal here in Perth, dryer than the long term average (I heard something somewhere that the dry here is tied to a 30 year cycle with increaded snow in Antarctica?) , but temps are pretty much normal apart from a few hot-ish days. It was damn cold this winter tho, had to buy a wood burner for lounge *shiver*
