The ABC hosts the BoM prattling on about a warmer than average Autumn for Canberra but ignores inconvenient fact that the BoM summer Outlook failed for the ACT region

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.

Giant US climate group NOAA jumps the shark claiming El Nino has arrived

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.

Where are the category 5 wind gust observations for Cyclone Marcia?

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 ?

The Australian Academy of Science quotes “unusually weak solar activity” as one reason for the post 2001 temperature slowdown

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.

How quickly the media let Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk break her clear promise ruling out minority government

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.”
