It's always the case. Global warming is BS, and it's always posted in the winter. What better time to defend your position. Again, here's the link
Australia......Meanwhile, mean temperatures in 2010 were cooler than those for the previous eight years, with an average of 22.0 degrees Celsius, 0.19C above the 1961 to 1990 average of 21.81C.
Nationally-averaged maximum temperatures were 1.23ºC below normal for spring, making it Australia’s 4th coldest spring on record. Most of Australia had cooler than normal daytime temperatures, except the western coast of WA, the far tropical north, Tasmania and the far southeast of the mainland.
December snow for the Alps
Anthony Duke, Saturday December 18, 2010 - 17:41 EDT
Cold air from the south in an upper level trough and widespread cloud cover has caused temperatures across the southeast to plummet. On Saturday, day time temperatures across Victoria, South Australia and parts of NSW were around 5 and 17 degrees below average.
In South Australia Moomba Airport just reached 19 degrees, 17 below average. This is 3 degrees colder than their December minimum average.
Elsewhere the places were in the Victorian Alps where temperatures were as cold as those seen in October. Mount Buller only managed to reach 2 degrees, 13 below average. Falls Creek warmed to just 3 degrees, the coldest it has been in December for 19 years.

Overall, the maximum temperature in 2010 averaged 25.8 degrees, which is around a degree below the long term norm of 26.6 degrees. Overnight temperatures remained slightly above the average of 16.2 degrees due to the increased cloud cover

Warm and extreme - Tasmania's 2010 weather

...I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains....
Each station has been assigned a CRN rating based on the quality rating system provided by NOAA. We found only
3 percent of the stations surveyed meet the requirements of Class 1, while an additional 8 percent meet the requirements of
Class 2. Stations that don’t qualify as Class 1 or 2 have artificial heating sources closer than 10 meters to the thermometer,
a far cry from the gold standard of 100 meters. This means 89 percent – nearly 9 of 10 – of the stations surveyed produce
unreliable data by NOAA’s own definition.
THE term "climate change" could be replaced by "climate challenges" if a federal commissioned marketing study is taken onboard. The study of attitudes to climate change among farmers, commissioned by the Agriculture Department, found only 27 per cent of those surveyed believed human activity was causing climate change, compared with 58 per cent of urban dwellers. As well, primary producers are "very resistant to carbon trading". "It fills them with dread, and there were strong negative reactions towards it," the report says.
they would much rather wait untill supply started dwindling (ironically when its the most expensive) and then boom "we solved the energy crisis, so the world wont perish in darkness as we thought, we have what will ressurect our society!! oh by the way, its not cheap"
So i Guess what we said two years ago wasnt at all possible seems to be Openly clear to be true, I just hope after all this we learn from the mistakes we have made, Im not saying we caused this to happen Cause Lets be real we havent been around Long enough to know that type of thing, But what is claer is that the world we Know and love is Changing, that means We will have to change as well...

You've completely missed the point.
There are those who claim anthropogenic (man-made) climate change - and there are those who deny anthropogenic (man-made) climate change. NOBODY is denying that our climate is changing - the only thing people are denying is whether man caused it or not.
