I knew you'd pop up here Pepe!

Hasn't stopped raining heavily here for days now.
Warragamba is going over very nicely.
Sadly a kayacker has drowned in the Parramatta River.
Loads of areas under evacuation orders tonight.
All is well at our place, the grass won't need to be watered for a while though.

Latest flooding has experts questioning Warragamba Dam wall raising plan

The current flood emergency has seen Minister for Western Sydney, Stuart Ayres, make a renewed push for the Warragamba Dam wall to be increased.

Last year the Insurance Council of Australia withdrew support for raising the height of the Warragamba Dam wall by 14 metres, saying the money would be better spent buying back flood-prone Hawkesbury land. It followed fierce opposition by councils, including Blue Mountains, as well as Indigenous groups and environmental organisations.

They are talking about raising the wall again, now.

‘Climate scientists’ humiliated after our dams spill for the second time this year

Former Chief Commissioner of the Climate Commission, Professor Tim Flannery, should apologise to the Australian people and never be taken seriously again.

In 2005, Flannery predicted that drought conditions would become “permanent in eastern Australia” and that “the rain that comes won’t fill our dams”.

Fast-forward 16 years and his forecasts couldn’t be further from the truth.

Today, thousands of residents in regional New South Wales are being told to flee their homes as Wyangala Dam is overflowing and rivers are beginning to sharply rise.

Sydney’s Warragamba Dam is at 100 per cent capacity and was spilling over the weekend, the second time in nine months.

In New South Wales alone, another five dams are over 100 per cent capacity at the moment including the Pindari, Chaffey, Lostock, Burrendong and Brogo dams. Even better, the Menindee Lakes are over capacity after years of suffering through drought.

This is the problem with the so-called “climate science” that has our media, politicians and woke corporates wetting themselves in fear of Armageddon: it’s all cherry-picked.

For hundreds of years, Australia has experienced harsh droughts and devastating floods, in line with Dorothea Mackellar’s 1904 assertion that this land is one “of droughts and flooding rains”.

The evidence is plentiful.

Is de-salutation a sexual term?

Multiple states being battered by heavy rain as series of weather fronts move across Australia

Quote:
While there are currently a number of emergency and weather warnings in place across Queensland, Victoria and NSW, it's not just the east coast seeing rainfall this weekend.
A series of low pressure systems are wreaking havoc across Australia, delivering rain in the Top End as well as storms and showers in the south-west of the country.
According to Weatherzone, it's the moisture from the tropics that will feed down to southwest WA, bringing smaller totals than those on the east coast but significant none-the-less.

People have drowned from the floods in northern and central Australia. Not exactly anything to celebrate anymore.
