Flannery slightly wrong

It’s still raining in NSW, and dam-dryness visionary Tim Flannery looks stupider every day:

Storage levels in Illawarra and Shoalhaven dams, on the New South Wales south coast, have been boosted by heavy rainfall over the past week.

Avon Dam, which supplies Wollongong, is up 14 per cent to 66 per cent of capacity, while the Nepean, Tallowa and the Fitzroy Falls dams are overflowing.

And overall storage levels in the Sydney catchment have reached 50 per cent for the first time in three years.

The magnitude of Flannery’s error began at 922,500 megalitres, grew to more than 950,000 megalitres, and now stands at 1,250,000 megalitres – or 330,215,064,051.95 US gallons.
