If its not snowing in Ferny Creek, its Global Warming.

apparently global warming has caused less frequency of snow in the Dandenongs, east of Melbourne.

This from David Jones, head of the National Climate Centre at the Bureau of Meteorology

“About 1C too warm in the end for proper snow in the Dandenongs. This happens a lot now a-days – have had only 1 proper snow day in 4 years . Heard some great stories of the snowfalls in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s when there was often inches on the ground in Ferny Creek. Apparently one in the 1950s put down more than 50cm and left the locals stranded for nearly a week.”

Perhaps if he engages his brain for a second, he would realise that that period was cold globally as the rapid cooling from the “extraordinary period of warmth” had begun. The PDO was indeed ina very cold cycle, until the Great Climate Shift in 1976.

Apparently if there is no snow at an elevation of 513m above sea level, its caused by global warming.

  1. And did he even realise for a moment that the increased population and infrastructure since the 1950’s might have had something to do with it?
