Stewart Franks, Bob Carter and I gave a presentation at Parliament House on Monday evening on Climate Change. Professor Carter focused on global temperatures, I followed with some rainfall graphs for different parts of Australia, and then Associate Professor Franks explained why rainfall along the east coast of Australia is so variable and dominated by either El Nina or La Nina cycles back at least as far as 1660.
Our main message was that there is no climate crisis, but that climate change is a natural hazard.
The event was organised by the office of Dennis Jensen MP. Dr Jensen is the member for Tangney in Western Australia.
Shadow minister, Nick Minchin, and former opposition leader, Brendan Nelson, both attended and are pictured with me at Parliament House on Monday evening.
