Tim Flannery’s dud alarmist predictions


He gets paid $180,000 for just three days of work per week as Australia’s Climate Commissioner. Despite repeated warnings of catastrophic sea-level rises, he lives by the water. And he’s almost always wrong.

Andrew Bolt:

Small problem, though: after so many years of hearing Flannery’s predictions, we’re now able to see if some of the scariest have actually panned out.

And we’re also able to see if people who bet real money on his advice have cleaned up or been cleaned out.

So before we buy a great green tax from Flannery, whose real expertise is actually in mammology, it may pay to check his record. Ready?

    Read a comment on one of the blogs, that Bob Brown and his partner, live in a double story house at Egg and Bacon Bay in Tasmania which lo and behold is only metres from the sea. Rising sea waters anyone?

    I have been waiting for the day that Sydney`s increased capacity Warragamba dam over flowed and hopefully the desalination plant floods, like Brisbane`s did last year.
    So much for that prediction that Warragamba would never be full again.
    With regards to sea level rises, 100 year old oyster leases, which have to be regularly checked, have hardly had a change in sea levels in100 years.

    If I had a job paying $180,000 pa and was so bad at it, I would have probably been sacked a long time ago. What a disgrace this Labor Governmnet is, as usual, they can`t manage an economy without massive debt and taxes.

    • Spot on. Those poor Vics, locked into their desal contract. Smart thinking, guys.

  1. My son asked the Flamster when Brisbane would run out of water, and the awarmist professor said, “within the next couple of years.”

    • If a company had a “top” adviser who was so wrong, such an embarrassment, essentially a laughing stock, they’d use a get-out clause and fire his ass, and possibly even sue him, take him to the cleaners just for kicks.

      • I have sent a submission to the Tasmanian DPP, urging him to investigate and then prosecute Prof. Flannery for various crimes, including conspiracy to defraud and acquiring a financial advantage.  Though he seems for the most part to have committed federal crimes, I witnessed Flannery’s promoting the fraudulent CAGW conjecture, with lies and deceptions, in Tasmania.
        I urge citizens in other States to report the con-artist to their own prosecutors.

        • I admire your chutzpah, but it’d be a few years yet – if ever – before we see the Flanscammer properly held to account.
