    Perhaps we should call David Jones our new idiot, though he has fierce competition from Flannery

    I was told by an alarmist back in November that there was no point discussing dams, as it would never rain again!! They never back down or apologise.

    Davy Jones’s locker. We’re all gonna die. Meanwhile, hell on earth: no internet nor wi-fi;
    fossil fuels sheeps-wool beef and hamburger barbies – all banned by fiat. CO2 fizz in beer, coke, champagne and baking powder. The poisoning has to be stopped. Only then will the UN gods be satisfied.

    Ofcourse patterns of temperature and rainfall change over time. Mankind should adapt to those changes, including learning from the experience of our ancestors. The increase in CO2 in the atmosphere has meant that there has been more energy in the understory of the bush and forests and so cleaning up the understory, as the natives of Australia used to do, is very important and it has been inadequately done. It would make sense to be able to store more of the rainfall on land but that requires a lot of investment. Instead of making that investment, money is wasted on foolish measures promoting unreliable renewables that are expensive. Dont worry the UK is worse, but it doesnt have the Bush.

    Warragamba dam (Sydney’s main dam) which had been down to about 40% a few weeks ago is currently registering 81.2% (see https://www.waternsw.com.au/supply/Greater-Sydney/greater-sydneys-dam-levels). We’ve had a lazy inch of rain today, with indications of more to come.

      The claim was 100% wrong, and that is relevant, because they are always wrong…
