YET ANOTHER dud-prediction realised from Global Warming Climate Change alarmist extraordinaire, Tim Flannery.

WHEN will he be, literally, put in the dock for crimes against climate/science truths, costing taxpayers literally $Billions in dud-predictions with his insane litany of ideologically driven climate falsehoods?!

From The Herald Sun’s Andrew Bolt:


Failed Prediction Update : Lapsley Versus Flannery As The Rain Falls

“So even the rain that falls isn’t actually going to fill our dams and our river systems…” Tim Flannery 2007

•••

Global Warmimg alarmists like, Tim Flannery, assured us that global warming would bring us a “new era” of climate – droughts, famine and pestilence etc etc.

With dams full in South Australia, and in most of eastern Australia, it would appear that the human-induced global warming disaster drought scenario, is yet another failed prediction from the climate hysterical.

•••

From the Herald Sun’s Andrew Bolt :

Emergency management commissioner Craig Lapsley on global warming today:

The rivers are full, the reservoirs are full, the dams are full, so every drop of rain that falls from the sky is going to be in the river system and has the potential to increase flooding at that local level.

Which is the exact opposite of what Tim Flannery predicted in 2007:

Even the rain that falls is not going to fill our dams and our river systems.

Amazing dam-filling in Adelaide. See above.

Another Flannery Fail: Geothermal Power Plant Project Scrapped

Tim Flannery.

No other comment needed.

Other than to mention that despite his myriad of alarmist dud-predictions resulting in costly, failed unreliable (green) energy solutions – geothermal, failed windmills, $12 billion of mothballed desal plants, to name a few, the Government funded ABC continues to default to him as their resident climate expert!?

The groupthink, warmist activists over at the ABC, never once questioning or holding him to account for his litany of green failures and dud-predictions, costing taxpayers literally billions upon billions of dollars.

But once again, the worst Flannery and his climate change alarmist cronies can ever be accused of, for failed alarmist predictions resulting in massive taxpayer-dollar waste, is an excess of virtue, in order to “Save the planet”.

Disgraceful.

Another green energy fail:

A potential energy source in Australia is set to remain untapped, with a geothermal power project in the far north of South Australia now closed.

Energy company Geodynamics closed and remediated the sites of several test wells and generation plants in the Cooper Basin after deciding they were not financially viable.

So who spruiked it? Climate catastrophist Tim Flannery:

There are hot rocks in South Australia that potentially have enough embedded energy in them to run Australia’s economy for the best part of a century. They are not being fully exploited yet but the technology to extract that energy and turn it into electricity is relatively straightforward….

But we’ve totally ignored the technologies that really, I think, have a lot of potential to do the job very cost effectively such as geothermal and solar…

Climate Change Australia – Pleasing Tim Flannery, Outraging Conservatives

Dear Greg Hunt and the CSIRO,

If the science of Climate Change aka Global (non) Warming is “settled”, why the need for more climate-groupthink-jobs?

Conservatives elected the Abbott (conservative) government, now the Turnbull Gov, on the basis of abolishing climate policy and investigating, if not, ending the corrupt CSIRO and BoM climate cabals.

It’s no wonder the Turnbull coalition 2016 election result was such a disaster with opinion polls now in further freefall.

The majority of voters and taxpayers *did not* vote for this latest climate cash splash.

Spending more taxpayer millions on the alarmist climate scam, when the country is broke, is an outright scandal and a disgrace.

Malcolm Turnbull’s hijacking of the Liberal party continues – and I wonder how much longer Liberal members will allow this to go on:

CSIRO LogoClimate Science lobby, The Climate Council said new Science Minister Greg Hunt ordering CSIRO head Larry Marshall to re-hire climate scientists was a good step, but Australia needs to grow climate science capacity to meet international commitments.

One of Mr Hunt’s first acts as Science Minister has been to order Mr Marshall to hire 15 new climate scientists and invest $37 million in research over 10 years.

Professor Tim Flannery from the council said the government had failed to stop the full extent of the job cuts to climate divisions.

Mr Marshall announced in February that 350 jobs would go including in the Oceans and Atmosphere and the Land and Water divisions. This was then cut down to 275, with only a portion…

Former Climate Commissioner Flannery Drowning In Hype

The Left has far more to fear from demands to criminalise dud claims about global warming:

Cartoon -- Global Warming LiesThirteen state GOP attorneys general have sent a letter to the Democratic AG’s who are investigating ExxonMobile for fraud in climate change research, telling them that if minimizing the danger of climate change is fraud, so is exaggerating the peril. They threaten to prosecute climate alarmists for making spectacular claims of disaster that have not materialized…

The “cuts both ways” argument was among those raised by 13 Republican attorneys general in a letter urging their Democratic counterparts to stop using their law enforcement power against fossil fuel companies and others that challenge the climate change catastrophe narrative.

Flannery Plumbs Fresh Depths Of Doom On Australia’s Great Barrier Reef

Bolt New 01By Andrew Bolt ~

Professional global warming alarmist and former Australian Climate Commissioner, Professor Tim Flannery goes diving at the Great Barrier Reef and plumbs new depths of alarmism, even by his startling standards:

GreatBarrierReefThis great organism, the size of Germany and arguably the most diverse place on earth, is dying before our eyes. Having watched my father dying two years ago, I know what the signs of slipping away are. This is death, which ever-rising temperatures will allow no recovery from.

In fact, the reef is recovering already:

The Great Barrier Reef’s most popular tourist sites show just two per cent of coral has died off, with the rest in “positive” signs of recovery, despite the world’s biggest mass coral bleaching event on record.

New research found about 68 per cent of reefs from Cairns to Lizard Island had varying levels of coral bleaching, but most of it…

No, not a parody. The Climate Council really has invited Australian warmists to spend more than $7500 for a luxury cruise, gassing with Tim Flannery:

As part of this adventure, you will join renowned scientist and former Australian of the Year, Professor Tim Flannery – the Climate Council’s Chief Councillor – on the adventure of a lifetime along the remote Kimberley coast…

Best of all, by taking part in this expedition, you’ll be stepping up to help provide Australians with a vital source of correct and informed information on climate change…

Our custom-built vessel is fully air-conditioned, equipped with a helipad, spa, large en-suited cabins and offers indoor and outdoor alfresco areas …

Plus more gassy extras, none solar-powered:

– Courtesy vehicle to/from your Broome accommodation

– Light aircraft from Broome to Mitchell Plateau

– Return helicopter flight from Mitchell Plateau to Hunter River

UPDATE

Another frequent-flying warmist hypocrite:

Taxpayers have forked out ­almost $13,000 for South Australian Premier Jay Weatherill, his department’s chief executive and two political staffers to stay in a five-star hotel for the Paris climate change talks in December.

This comes after taxpayers outlaid more than $185,500 for a private film crew to follow the Labor Premier on two overseas trips, including to Paris, to produce promotional videos.

Government figures showed it cost about $53,600 for two people from Adelaide company 57 Films to follow Mr Weatherill on the Paris trip.

Tony Jones Whitewashes Tim Flannery. Don’t Trust A Word The ABC Says About Global Warming

Flannery on Southeastern Australia rainfall:

“But what I was talking about a decade ago and what continues to be absolutely true today is that south-eastern Australia overall is losing rainfall, it’s starting to dry out, there’s a drying trend which is strongly tied to the influence of greenhouse gases….”

If he cared to look at the BoM rainfall stats, there is certainly no “drying trend”.

The actual data on Southeastern Australia rainfall shows no trend at all since 1900: Annual rainfall – Southeastern Australia (1900-2014)

Also worth noting: Southern Australia annual rainfall is trending up. As is the entire Eastern Australia region.

Bald-faced lies and pure scientific deception from Flannery…again.

Will the ABC “Fact Check” unit pick up this most basic of factual errors?

The legacy of Tim Flannery..White elephant desalination plants

“So even the rain that falls isn’t actually going to fill our dams and our river systems…” Tim Flannery 2007

Fast forward to NSW 2015, where Sydney’s water catchments today are 83.6 per cent full, and rising fast.

Similar story across Australia with rainfall patterns rising since Flannery’s global warming alarmist lies, which cost taxpayers $BILLIONS in Climate bodies and mothballed desal plants.

South Australia’s government is facing calls to explain why its new $1.8 billion desalination “white elephant” is to be mothballed, possibly until the next drought.

The desalination plant at Port Stanvac may be left in “standby mode” while the city is able to rely on cheaper water from the River Murray and local reservoirs, SA Water chief John Ringham announced on Thursday.

“The Adelaide desalination plant is South Australia’s insurance policy against future droughts and provides a flexible, climate independent water source, so we will continue to maintain it to a level where it can be switched on when we need it,” Mr Ringham said in a statement.

The desalination plant was proposed by the Labor government in a move to match a policy from the Liberal opposition at a time when South Australia, and much of eastern Australia, was in the grip of a severe drought.
