Didn't prominent AGW alarmist Tim Flannery predict a decade or so ago that the dams would dry up and eastern Australia would be in a state of perpetual drought?

These AGW/climate change/climate emergency/climate catastrophe predictions have and interesting trend of being consistently wrong.

The triple La Nina is really giving it to NSW and S/E Queensland in particular over the last couple of years. Hopefully it,ll not do too much damage this time. Fingers crossed.

Just in time for the cricket season

Global warming: the atmosphere is warmer and can absorb more moisture from the oceans, which makes for more rain and snow when the air hits a cold low-pressure area. So, lots of flooding to come. Move to the upper floors of a tower condominium.

It's called "Climate Change ".

No use cherry picking what Tim Flannery said or didnt say...all the records are being broken.

Ask Pacific Island people if the seas are rising ?

I don't know - never heard of him. But is the evidence for man made climate change very strong? Yes.

Is Australia becoming 'more and more and, still more unlivable' year after year after year? If not by fire? Then, by water? Australia is one of the largest if not, the largest island in the world. Some 90% of this great land mass is called the Outback. The Outback is unlivable. May God help any one who gets lost in the Outback. Although rare greenery manage to exist in the Outback, the Outback may be called a desert. Is the Outback as big as the Sahara?

@Stephen Chin

A little bit of research will clarify some of your points.

And climate change means exactly that - climate change.

Fires, Floods, Droughts, Blizzards, Heat, Super Storms and everything in between.

Transporting some of that abundant water further inland might allow greening of parts of the desert opening up arid areas for habitation.
