AGW Fueled Flood goes Viral. Cars swept away in Deluge Down Under..

January 13, 2011

Having just driven thru an AGW type blizzard on the US East Coast, I finally found a hotel room, and popped open ClimateProgress to find this astounding video of a flashflooding Australian stream carrying away a line of parked cars. It’s part of the wettest spring on record down under, with major dislocations in industry and agriculture.

It’s rapidly going viral on youtube, with over 2 million views.

    Meanwhile, on the other side of Australia…

    Western Australia- 2010 was the driest year on record for the “South West”- which is where most of the people and agriculture are. And we are expecting a heat wave this week 40C (105F).

    This is what the climate modelling is predicting

    (there was another chart showing the West coast of Australia having large reductions in rainfall)

    I say lets just keep poking Gaia in the eye with a pointy (carbonaceous) stick and see what she does next.


  5. […] In other words, get used to it. This is what snowfall events will be like more and more often, in the areas that get snow.  More warmth in the atmosphere = more moisture = greater precipitation events, like the current disaster down under. […]
