Uh Oh, Global Warming to Blame for Global Cooling

This is interesting. I found this at Watts Up With That by way of the Sydney Morning Herald. The WWF blames climate change for the coldest August in Sydney in 60 years. Global warming can do anything? Go figure.

Forget global warming - the latest problem is global cooling.

Conservation group WWF has blamed climate change for the coldest August in Sydney for more than 60 years.

The freezing temperatures are proof of the urgent need to cut carbon pollution, according to WWF development and sustainability program manager Paul Toni.

“We can expect more extremes in climate,” Mr Toni said.

He said climate records had tumbled over the past year.

Australia had its driest May on record, Perth had its wettest April on record, and Tasmania recorded its hottest ever temperature, according to Mr Toni.

He said climate extremes were affecting southern Australia in particular.

“This is consistent with climate modelling showing the southern states will feel the effects of climate change most severely,” he said.

Mr Toni said if action was not taken, more volatile weather would be on the radar.
