Australia’s Chief Climate Alarmist fails in another of his predictions after just 7/10 years

flannery(h/t @tan123) In 2005, Professor Tim Flannery predicted that climate change would result in weather shifts and rainfall declines being permanent in nature with worst case scenarios seeing Sydney facing extreme water supply difficulties. The Warragamba catchment and dam is specifically mentioned.

Professor Tim Flannery was named Australian of the Year in 2007 because of his climate alarmism and then went on to be named the Chief Commissioner of the Climate Commission, a Federal Government body providing information on climate change to the Australian public.

Luckily this organisation was disbanded by the conservative government in 2013, however, Professor Flannery sought crowd funding for a “Climate Council” ensuring his own pay packet was secured with over $2 million in donations for 13/14.


On 3 March 2012, just 7 years after his fallacious claims, the Warrangamba Dam had filled and overflowed.

And again today, just 10 years after the original claims, the Warragamba Dam has filled and overflowed again.

    There was a time when people were named as heroes for accomplishing [i]great[/i] things – [i]real[/i] things, now heroes are named for making self-serving political claims, many of which are demonstrably false on their face. [i]Exhibit A:[/i] Al Gore and the Nobel Peace Prize

    I had one person tell me it’s just the “outliers” that made these kinds of predictions. The Chief Commissioner of the Climate Commission is about as far as you can get from being an “outlier”.

    Why do we still dignify these lies by calling them “failed predictions”?
