Another La Niña

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Thu, 01/09/2022 - 9:15am in

Another La Niña weather event is now rated a 70% chance for the south-eastern seaboard of Australia this summer. A third La Niña in a row would be unprecedented. Another wet summer, with yet more floods and destruction? As it is, Sydney is well on track for it’s highest ever rainfall total in a calendar year in 2022, since official records began being kept in 1858. Something’s going on.

Today’s Climate Forecast

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 19/07/2022 - 5:52pm in

And onto today’s climate forecast,
where we can expect to see a prolonged spell of inaction,
interspersed with patches of hazy promises
across many areas. 

Over Westminster and other centres of government,
a build-up of hot air will cause inactivity
to soar to record levels over the coming days,
in spite of the high pressure.

Elsewhere, a front of chronic misinformation
will sweep in from the east,
bringing with it a band of climate change deniers
and the chance of scattered falsehoods,

while powerful gusts of idiocy and ignorance
look set to blow across social media.
Outbreaks of ‘We just got on with it in 1976’
and ‘It’s called the British summer, mate’ are likely.

In summary: unsettling.

Gone a bit

Gone a bit over the top on the green hedging here. Mind you, it’s a meticulously maintained thick mat, so the house would be nice and cool in summer and it’d help keep the joint warm in winter. Lilyfield.

There’s been a

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Sun, 29/05/2022 - 8:55am in

There’s been a fuckton of rain along Australia’s East Coast in the last six months, due to the La Niña climate phenomenon, with catastrophic flooding in February/March, particularly between 600km-1000km north of Sydney. Going into winter here in the Inner West now, and the pretty shit is still spilling out onto cracks in the pavement. Marrickville.

Wall garden. Entirely

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Sun, 01/05/2022 - 9:03am in

Wall garden. Entirely self-seeded vegetation on this perpetually damp part of a sheer wall of Sydney Sandstone, quarried out to about 30 ft down above an older road cutting, carting away solid sandstone - the 19th century building material of choice. The resulting narrow ribbon park around the rock face was named the Sarah Peninton Reserve in 1951. Peninton was one of the leading sympathisers and chief provocateurs in the local timber and dock workers strike of 1929. Solidarity forever. Glebe.
