Coldest morning of the year

By Jivrashia - 5 May 2014 36

From ABC news on today’s freezing morning:

Temperatures dropped below freezing this morning for the first time since November, reaching minus 1.7 degrees at Canberra Airport and minus 2.6 degrees at Tuggeranong.

Forecaster Sean Carson says the last time it was this cold so early in Autumn was in 1983. He says Canberra was the colder than anywhere else in the country this morning.

Mr Carson says more freezing temperatures are expected this week.

“The cold front that swept across on the weekend did bring a dusting of snow across the Snowy Mountains,” he said.

“Looks like we will have some light frost almost every morning for the next seven days, it’s that time of year.”

Well, I’m a dedicated bicycle commuter and I almost suffered frostbite in my toes this morning.

What’s Your opinion?

Well, the coldest Autumn morning for 31 years – and it’s official – BOM on ABC no less!
I am not holding my breath waiting to hear explanations from the few climate warming alarmists left out there.

I don’t know why anyone would bother. If you don’t understand by now, you’re unlikely to accept the science with another explanation. Some people died believing the earth was flat and circled the sun. All the evidence otherwise they refused to accept. Climate change deniers are the latest to display their ignorance of science.

Why bother explaining? The science is there and it is unequivocal.

Science is neither ‘right-wing’ nor ‘left-wing’. It just is. And whether you choose to believe in it or not makes not one bit of difference to the data.

FFS, learn the difference between weather and climate…

Unbelievable.

Data used in climate change alarmist theory is input only. The outcomes are totally different as evidenced by our coldest Autumn day in 31 years and no warming for the past 17 years.
I don’t know why you try and marry science to politics either – please explain this.

Who were the people who died circling the sun while believing the earth was flat?
The “science” of climate change has yet to present any evidence of sea levels rising at catastrophic rates etc.

Thanks for the compliment. Someone has to challenge the alarmists.

Okay, I shouldn’t write before I have eaten breakfast. Let me reword that. ‘Some people went to their graves still believing the earth was flat and the sun circled the earth.’

I thought climate change was given?

Aren’t we coming out of the last ice-age, so the globe will generally be warming, polar ice will be melting, and sea will be rising in the foreseeable future?

The debate is whether the effect of global warming is ‘normal’ or accelerated/aggravated by humans, and whether carbon tax is just a money-grabbing exercise.

Did I get that right?

That frosty morning seems to have been a one-off thing.
Hopefully the worst will hold off until Queens B’day.

Because the vast majority of idiots who deny the climate change science also tend to link it to some sort of left wing plot.

And yes I deliberately used the term idiot. Anyone who tries to deny the absolute masses of evidence is an idiot.

That is not to say that they are not entitled to their opinion. People are entitled to any opinion they like…but when that opinion flies in the face of all evidence then they are an idiot.

It would be like someone saying ” Well I’ve never been to Beijing so therefore I don’t believe it exists”. They are entitled to hold the opinion, but they are definitely an idiot for having it.

Where is the evidence that sea levels are rising?
I see you respect my opinion but you don’t respect my person.

Your proposal is more plausable that the of the alarmists.
The science peddled by the climate scientists may be settled but the evidence is yet to appear.
