This man never ceases to amaze. He also suffers memory loss.
Time for a refresher course. Here is the email to Phil Jones, of climategate fame.

Thanks Phil for the input and paper. I will get back to you with comments next week.
Fortunately in Australia our sceptics are rather scientifically incompetent. It is also
easier for us in that we have a policy of providing any complainer with every single
station observation when they question our data (this usually snows them) and the
Australian data is in pretty good order anyway.
Truth be know, climate change here is now running so rampant that we don’t need
meteorological data to see it. Almost everyone of our cities is on the verge of running out
of water and our largest irrigation system (the Murray Darling Basin is on the verge of
collapse – across NSW farmer have received a 0% allocation of water for the coming summer
and in Victoria they currently have 5% allocations – numbers that will just about see the
death of our fruit, citrus, vine and dairy industries if we don’t get good spring rain).
The odd things is that even when we see average rainfall our runoffs are far below average,
which seems to be a direct result of warmer temperatures. Recent polls show that
Australians now rate climate change as a greater threat than world terrorism.
So, if the water catchments are a sign of climate change, quite clearly now the climate has changed, for the better.
Using David’s method, all the cities have an abundance of water, including Melbourne which now sits at 81.5 %.
The Murray Darling Basin is now at 98%, despite being almost empty.
However, David suffers amnesia and doesn’t mention this on social media. He babbles on about how hot the interior of the country is, as if it’s never been hot before.
Earth to David, they call it a desert for a reason. And apparently, a positive IOD causing a dry winter is a first as well.
