Australian Floods – Why Do We Let Our Towns Drown?

February 2, 2013 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Don’t feel pity when you see these TV pictures of Australian towns yet again flooded and the locals crying for what they’ve lost. Feel embarrassment. Shame. How stupid is this country that we not only built towns and suburbs in flood-prone areas, but left them defenceless against the inevitable floods? Some […]

Rockhampton Flood Redux – 2013

February 1, 2013 by


While the rest of most of Australia’s Eastern seaboard is recovering from, and cleaning up after the major flood following the huge rain event I mentioned in this earlier Post, the flood peak here in Rockhampton doesn’t arrive until later tonight (Friday) or early tomorrow morning.

A Few More Inches and Heaven Help Brisbane

February 5, 2011 by


By Andrew Bolt Look very closely at this image. It is taken from a position on the lake side of Wivenhoe Dam looking towards and across the Dam’s wall, that thin black line you can see. Between that area of green in the middle distance you can see the frothing of the water as it […]

Who Will be the First to Blame Global Warming?

February 2, 2011 by


By Andrew Bolt In an almost certainly doomed attempt to head off the “global-warming-caused-Cyclone-Yasi” meme, here’s an extract from the Bureau of Meteorology site: On average 4.7 tropical cyclones per year affect the Queensland Tropical Cyclone Warning Centre Area of Responsibility. There is a strong relationship with eastern Australian tropical cyclone impacts and the El […]
