Flannery’s Flim Flam Drought
The news last week revealed that Sydney's main water supply, Warragamba Dam, was 100% full and was overflowing. That reminded me of predictions by the Flim-Flam man, Tim Flannery.
And wasn't there something else that Tim said about: "even the rain that falls....."
“SO even the rain that falls isn’t actually going to
fill our dams and our river systems…”
Gee, what would you ask Dr Tim today? And will "our" ABC question Tim about his dud predictions?
Then I began to think about what makes rain......
I am a simple man, so I went to First Grade Walks and found:
Now, I thought that the yellow object in the top right of the above picture was a clue, but I went to First Grade Walks' next slide:
Now, let's see if I have this right......

Hmmmm.... if the Sun's warmth puts the water vapour into the atmosphere, isn't it warming that causes rain?
But, this cannot be! Tim Flannery told us that warming was going to cause drought.
Was Tim completely wrong? Well, he has been wrong before with his science fiction book "The Weather Makers."
Dr D Weston Allen exposed Flannery's flawed fiction in his rebuttal "The Weather Makers Re-examined."(link)
