Latest From The Australian Permanent Drought

January 4, 2008

This drought may never break

IT MAY be time to stop describing south-eastern Australia as gripped by drought and instead accept 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.

Looks like the new climate is causing 95% of the country to be drought-free.

    Steve,

    Something amiss here – about 60% of Queensland (the state on the north east corner) is drought declared. We’re carting water for stock for the first time since 1947.

      The quest for an all female climate harem shifts from Canada to Oz.

      This old soul is here to educate some climate virgins. Was an all female security detail requested? How many bikini shots were traded before making the decision to come?

      Rumor has it some Bondi Babes have found the teeny weenie hockey stick. So Manniacal was partially right after all!

        Suzuki is a zoologist who studied fruit flies. Which, of course, makes him a climate expert. Listening to him recently, it’s apparent that he hasn’t moved on from his 1972 opinion that humans are maggots.

        Suzuki’s lifelong goal was to become a 10th level maggot.

    It is wet and warm here in southwest Vic and the grass is growing the farmers are getting a bit more money, we have a new Government in Canberra all good.

      Exactly. Here in Albury we’ve had so much rain recently all the dams are overflowing. Funny how it always rains after a drought 🙂

    I think it looks like it is more like 97% drought free.

    Stephen, yes, we got the change of government, now we need the 5 inches of rain.

    Anto, thanks – last I heard we were supposed to be wetter than average (as was the winter by the way) and that would put the kiss of death on things.

    Steve – What is even more interesting is that the data preceding the Jan 4, 2008 article showed no drought in south eastern Australia: http://www.bom.gov.au/climate/drought/archive/20080107.shtml

    In 2007, Chief Climate Commissioner Tim Flannery made this bizarre claim while hyping the threat to Australia from global warming:

    Even the rain that falls isn’t actually going to fill our dams and river systems.

    Flannery was completely wrong. Two years of record rains, floods and filled dams prove it. Yet some warmists refuse to hold him to account, and even refuse to believe he said precisely what he said:
