The SMH’s Marian Wilkinson, a few weeks ago:
Australia had its hottest January on record, in line with a pattern that has seen the country’s average temperature rise over the past five decades under the impact of global warming.
That “pattern” didn’t hold for Sydney:
“In terms of rainfall it’s been the wettest summer for six years,” said Shannon Symons from the bureau’s climate centre …
Remarkably, not one day this summer pushed past 31 degrees.
“That’s only happened three times in the past (in 149 years of the bureau’s weather records), with the last being 1956 – it’s quite significant,” Ms Symons said.
If this cooling trend continues for say, another four or five years, it’s going to make it difficult for the climate alarmist industry to continue advancing their agenda.
Considerations such as these usually have no effect on people whose worldview is seen through the lens of a disaster movie. They will merely move on to yet another catastrophic scenario with which to fill their otherwise mundane lives.
Good point; most types prone to shrieking about the end of the world do tend to lead dull lives. Imagine how boring your life must be to find excitement in turning off lights.
