A column by Tim Flannery in the London Times appears below this headline:
Ten predictions about climate change that have come true
All are so vague and non-proveable (“species would start going extinct”) they might have been written by a carnival psychic. As for Flannery’s more precise predictions, check this, made in June 2005:
The ongoing drought could leave Sydney’s dams dry in just two years.
Brisbane and Adelaide – home to a combined total of three million people – could run out of water by year’s end.
Again, Flannery is wrong. Yet he’s sticking to his guns. And from the Times piece linked above, Flannery’s seventh prediction about climate change he claims has come true: “That Australia would start drying out.”

There came an Australian sea-level team, which was for the IPCC and against me. Then the students pulled down the tree by hand! They destroyed the evidence. What kind of people are those? And we came to launch this film, “Doomsday Called Off,” right after, and the tree was still green. And I heard from the locals that they had seen the people who had pulled it down. So I put it up again, by hand, and made my TV program. I haven’t told anybody else, but this was the story.
They call themselves scientists, and they’re destroying evidence! A scientist should always be open for reinterpretation, but you can never destroy evidence. And they were being watched, thinking they were clever.
I wonder if any of you have an idea who the villians were that perpetraited this act?
Perhaps with Tim’s world wide staff of reporters you can solve this mystery?
