Canberra set for warmer than average autumn due to rise in ocean temperatures: Bureau of Meteorology. The BoM said “…this year’s autumn weather conditions would be relative to 2014, which saw record-breaking temperatures.” What are they talking about ? Autumn 2014 was near average for the ACT.
Summer Outlooks for Australia only had minor areas cooler than average or in the uncoloured average zones.
Real world summer days saw anomalies in the -1° to +1°C zone or cooler for the majority of Australia.
NOAA: Elusive El Niño arrives – While the 30 day SOI is near neutral?
In view that NOAA and many other IPCC compliant spokes-folks have been calling an El Nino for a year now – it would appear that instead of quietly walking away whistling from their stone dead failed prediction and getting on with more useful work for USA taxpayers – NOAA has decided to use their prestige to say El Nino is here anyway. Crazy – but this is one of the effects of the IPCC on climate science.
RI numbers indicating sunspot activity could be off that shoulder –
The BoM rain Outlook for summer predicted only minor areas would enjoy above average rain-
yet average and above average decile rain fell over vast areas – over the majority of the area of Australia.
Why is the BoM allowed to waste our taxes publishing these useless Outlooks?
IPCC chair Rajendra Pachauri resigns – the article says a permanent replacement will not be selected until October. The IPCC has to be disbanded
Just read this – Let’s Not Feed Our Enemies – and the linked article – Syria: Lies To Die For – while in need of editing is well worth the time to read through.
The BoM rates Marcia as a Cat 5 now – yet the strongest wind gusts I can find are 208kmh at Middle Percy Island at 4.30am. which indicates Cat 3.
ABC News24 is quoting wind gusts 300kmh – the Qld Premier is on news quoting 280kmh wind gusts.
As I write coming up 11.30am St Lawrence had gusts of 44kmh at 4am and Williamson 96kmh recorded at 8.30am Qld time of course. Williamson looks near fair & square in the path. Can anybody point me to online Cat 5 wind observations ?
Download the 7MB pdf report – page 10 Box 2.2 for the amazing quote saying […unusually weak solar activity] is a cooling influence. That they have the hide to include that in the face of decades of the IPCC refusing to accept the sun was affecting changes in earths temperature.
They also say [None of these influences is likely to continue over the long term.] Talk about messy statements – so solar – aerosols – volcanoes are all short term.
I like the quotes in Box 2.1 – where they pontificate about measuring “climate variables” – They say – (with careful account for changes in instrument types,
observational practices, instrument locations and urban areas)
It could be re-written along lines – with careful account for changes in instrument types, observational practices, instrument locations and taking care to include in global temperature compilations artificially warmed data from every urban area on the planet.
Party leaders make joint climate commitment – seems amazing that the Govt could not separate itself from Labour and whoever the other guy is.
The ABC reported on 12 January that Labor Leader Annastacia Palaszczuk ruled out forming a minority government.
Queensland election 2015: Palaszczuk rules out minority government option –
Does anybody have a link to video of her saying that ?
Courier Mail had the quote too with her saying “I’ll make it very clear – no, no, no, no deals.”
