PolitiNerd saidYeah, Australia has our alarmists too. My personal favourite is Tim Flannery.
He said that "even the rain that falls will no longer fill our dams", a few years later, almost every south-eastern dam has overflowed and there are no dams that have alarmingly low water levels.
Oh! But you see, that never happened, if you believe the Lefties. You see, what he MEANT to say was that "Australia will see more extreme weather events like this in the future" (talking about a severe flooding).
You see, there will ALWAYS be the idiots who continue to peddle the lie that Earth is going to either dry or drown to death (take your pick at whatever convenient time it is to change your mind ).
Bjorn Lomborg has excellent views on the whole thing, so I would suggest listening to his analyses.
The warming could actually be beneficial to many people as crops and vegetation grows better in warmer climes.
You see? They never talk about the WHOLE picture. They're just wrong almost all the time
There's so much crazy going on here, I don't know where to start...
1) For what it's worth, Australia is currently in a heat wave and drought:
2) Your claim about Flannery is bullshit:
And even if he did mean that, he meant a generation later, not "a few years later".
3) It is possible for a climate to be dryer while experiencing more frequent floods. You don't have to take your head out of your ass that much to figure out how.
4) The warming would be beneficial because crops will grow better. Who cares?? Hunger affects the people who live in the warmest climates in this world. The lack of warmth isn't the problem, the lack of water is! Which will only get worse with climate change.
5) They talk about the whole picture, but you only see your backyard, which is why you think they're wrong.
Well, if you listened to all news, you'd know that Queensland is experiencing a heat wave, NOT the entire country and actually, we're not experiencing drought except for the most arid areas of the country, and that's called a natural phenomenon, because it's ARID.
My words on Flannery are not bullshit. Here are a few articles that highlight my point:
So perhaps it's not all my own conspiracy?
Rain levels have not fallen at all on a statistically significant scale at all, and in many areas of the world, it's gone UP! You have evidence to suggest that it has gone down. Not even the Left wing media has even suggested that rain levels are falling, because they know it HASN'T. Food is going up, and that is FAR more important to people in places like Africa and Asia, where people starve to death. No statistically significant temperature rises have been observed.
As you can probably decide not to see, I don't just look at my own backyard. That's what people like Flannery do, saying that a few bushfires equate to GLOBAL warming. Yeah, even though it's a LOCAL phenomenon, it means GLOBAL warming.
If it really was GLOBAL warming, then we'd be seeing GLOBAL WARMING. Which we're not.
Oh, but you see, the Left have changed the words to 'Climate Change' so it doesn't sound as stupidly unfounded, but we all know that you still all mean global warming. I don't hear any of you commenting on how Antarctica has more ice than it did a century ago and has frozen a ship within its ice fields.
Or is that not convenient to you?
