Global warming doom mongering goes up in smoke!

Thanks to Andrew Bolt - Alarmist of the Year Tim Flannery really should stay out of the predictions business, unless he’s just rehearsing a comedy act.
Four years ago, there was his prediction for Perth:
Speaking last night at the State Government’s Sydney Futures forum, Dr Flannery warned of a city grappling with up to 60 per cent less water. As temperatures around the world warmed by 2 to 7 per cent, Sydney could glimpse its future by looking at the devastating impact that global warming had already had on Perth… ”I think there is a fair chance Perth will be the 21st century’s first ghost metropolis,” Dr Flannery said.
Perth’s dams have reached their highest July level in eight years, despite WA’s gas crisis causing the closure of the Kwinana desalination plant at the start of the month. Above-average rainfall in the major catchment areas since April has meant that the dams are about 34 per cent full… Weather Bureau spokesman Glenn Cook said that the high dam levels were due in part to good winter rain last year...
Three years ago there was his prediction for Sydney:
He also predicts that the ongoing drought could leave Sydney’s dams dry in just two years.
The available storage as at 3 p.m. Thursday, 7 August 2008 was 66.0 %.
MK - They must loathe him with such passion, Andrew Bolt that is.
