The Wrath Of Gaia is Upon Us

Why is Climate Change always bad? IF the globe warms slightly there will be good effects and bad effects.
All that extra rain and CO2 may make the outback bloom!
When did we EVER hear of a good effect of global warming – come on – waiting, waiting…
In fact there is NO repeat NO science for the Causes-causes-all-the-bad-weather-storms theory – you will not find it – they made it up as they went along and got away with it because it sounds plausible – hurricanes are caused by ocean heat therefore global warming will cause more hurricanes.

The only problem is there is no science for this – none. Tropical storms are unpredictable. It’s always like – oh look, surprise, there’s a new cyclone. Nobody ever says there will be a cyclone there in 3 days, because they can’t.

Greens MP Adam Bandt is an exploitative fear-monger.

He is also dead wrong on the science:

“If Malcolm Turnbull uses scarce public money to build a new coal-fired power station he’ll have blood on his hands. Because the more coal we burn, the more extreme weather events like Cyclone Debbie or Cyclone Yasi we will see.”

In fact, the Bureau of Meteorology show a dramatic fall in the number of cyclones in Australia in the period of alleged man-made warming. BOM – Tropical Cyclone Trends –

Even the UN Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change, an alarmist body, admits in its most recent summary that there is no basis for Bandt’s kind of fear-mongering:

In summary, confidence in large scale changes in the intensity of extreme extratropical cyclones since 1900 is low…. Over periods of a century or more, evidence suggests slight decreases in the frequency of tropical cyclones making landfall in the North Atlantic and the South Pacific, once uncertainties in observing methods have been considered. Little evidence exists of any longer-term trend in other ocean basins… Several studies suggest an increase in intensity, but data sampling issues hamper these assessments… Callaghan and Power (2011) find a statistically significant decrease in Eastern Australia land-falling tropical cyclones since the late 19th century although including 2010/2011 season data this trend becomes non-significant (i.e., a trend of zero lies just inside the 90% confidence interval).

Actually to be fair, he is did not claim that this Cyclone was caused by global warming, just that more cyclones will be caused by global warming. A wise qualification since the globe is not warming yet – not significantly. By picking his starting point he can cite a little global warming, but nothing unusual. The globe has been warming all by itself anyway since the recent Little Ice Age.
