Global Warming To Cause More Frost In Oz!

From ABC:

 

Frosts like the ones that caused so much damage to crops this season could be more common for the next 20 years, according to scientists.

They say greenhouse gases in the atmosphere were changing the way high pressure systems formed and moved, causing severe frost problems for farmers.

 

Frosts in August this year devastated grain, legume and oilseed crops across Australia’s cropping regions.

Final crop losses would not be known until what was left was harvested, but anecdotal reports suggest some farmers have lost up to 80 per cent of their crop, while others had hardly been affected at all.

 

 

Meanwhile, back in the real world:

Evidently, Australia has never had cold weather in August before!

 

Is there no end to the junk these “scientists” will come up with to justify more grant money?

 

 

PS

 

The most interesting comment came from Steven Crimp, senior research scientist from the CSIRO and one of the scientists involved in the study:

 

But he was less certain that the effect would be reversed if the amount of greenhouse gas in the atmosphere was reduced.

"That’s the next step for our research. So what we’re trying to see is – is this a permanent feature going forward in the future, or is there some sort of point in which the number of frosts actually starts to decline?

 

TRANSLATION:

We have not got a clue what we are talking about, and no evidence that global warming has led to this year’s weather. But give us some more money anyway!

    Perhaps what they’re trying to say is that everyone knows that BOM adjustments create a warming trend where non exists in reality, and that temps are actually cooling.

    I believe the saying was “everything is caused by climate change except when we say it’s not”.

    Surely that will keep the sheeples in their corral.

    Doomsday apologists.

    Further translation: We *Knew* a cooling cycle was coming, and we *need* to keep the public from realizing that!

    Reblogged this on Globalcooler's Weblog and commented:
    In the same email as the SL article was this about the CO2 caused freezing. That CO2 is a miraculous gas. We should capture it in 12gr steel containers and sell it for numerous purposes. It can inflate life jackets, propel projectiles from lead, copper and plastic paint balls, it can propel small race cars and boats, Someone must have released a lot of this gas from high pressure as that is the only way it could cool the atmosphere. Despite the frost it appears there is a lot of hot air down under. it’s a shame as there are a lot of really good people down there doing a lot of really good things. Thank you Ozzy’s.
