Succinct and exactly on mark at the inimitable Whaleoil.
No doubt a headline event for the WA Watercorporation. There seems to be errors in the BoM map for example the 100% line should go west from Perth to the coast on basis Swanbourne and Rottnest – see data at AWN map. The brown area NNE of Wagin seems to lack data justification too in stations I can see at the CDO map. For large map.
Last February there was widespread heavy rain over SW Western Australia causing much flooding across many districts – Engineers Australia. Yet I can not see evidence that water was measured flowing into Perth dams. The rain for Perth catchments was mostly on the 10th Feb. I have kept screen shots of the “Rainfall at Perth Dams” page which has a running total of inflows but the total never varies in the days after the rain event.
I have kept a weekly check on metal prices for some years now – for a year Aluminium has been pretty much boring but has just jumped ~7% on the back of falling stocks. Interesting because of our aluminium smelters that will be a bit more able to cope with electricity prices now.
Starting with SW WA the iconic poster-child of the lavishly State-funded climate scaremongers – exactly wrong.
SE WA and West SA big fail.
Central WA 2 wet predictions – huge fail.
Far north wet prediction mostly an utter fail.
Central NT huge wet was predicted dry – fail again.
Cooktown region wet not predicted – fail again.
West Qld wet was predicted dry – huge fail again.
SE SA and west Vic another fail.
Tas got its rain the wrong way around!!! Fail again.
First the prediction.
Then rain in July.
For large maps Outlook – July rain % – BoM Outlooks – make rain maps
We blogged on this subject 6th July – But sceptics have been busy behind the scenes as evidenced by Jennifer Marohasy who has blogged a deliciously misleading letter of explanation from the BoM to Minister Frydenberg. Oh how quick the BoM colossus can respond when the Minister’s office calls.
Today Jennifer and Lance have made the front page of The Australian. For large picture. I can hear the BoM molars grinding from here.
I think this is the text of the article – came in by email Continue reading Persistent truth telling climate sceptics cause the BoM to shaft itself again
The stupidest thing the federal government does – I am not sure it is the “stupidest” but will leave that for now.
