Is this assertion correct?

"In drought years, the Amazon region changes from being a net absorber of carbon dioxide into a net emitter."

"Amazon drought 'severe' in 2010, raising warming fears"

Nice to see scientists getting some very worked up about other scientists not releasing their data.

Obviously though, this is real science. Not post normal science.

More BBC weather lies

We've just been told twice by the BBC News tonight that the Brisbane floods were the 'worst in history'. This is blatantly untrue and by a long way, according to the Australian Bureau of Meteorology - as clearly explained by Roger Pielke Jr here (i.e. substantially lower than the early 1970s and about half of levels recorded previously).

I used to have a substantial degree of faith in the BBC's standards, but recent propaganda filth has eroded this completely - I'm not sure there's any way back from here. Does anybody know who to complain to?

The oceans, clouds and cosmic rays drive the climate, not CO2.

Jo Nova has a post up that is well worth a read.

"Extra climate summit to focus on Kyoto successor
UN confirms Bangkok talks in April on top of already scheduled meetings in Bonn and Durban

Even though the Bangkok talks will gather senior negotiators from almost 200 countries, a further session is likely to be held between Bonn and Durban, officials said, after the false start of Copenhagen and incremental progress last month in Cancun."

UK Govt puts infrastructure on alert for climate change demands.
Fri 28.1.2011

The first batch in a series of reports produced by organisations which maintain national infrastructure and published by Defra this week set out potential risks and solutions.

Reports from seven organisations including Network Rail, National Grid and the Highways Agency were carried out at the request of Defra under the Climate Change Act to ensure that organisations with a crucial role in running the country’s infrastructure are preparing for the threats and opportunities which climate change will pose.

I like this bit from Network Rail.....

John Dora, Principal Engineer on Climate Change, Network Rail said: “Britain’s railway today is resilient to adverse weather but to safeguard its future we must continue to stay prepared in managing the impact from a changing climate.

Uuum “resilient” does that mean Network Rail can make repairs quicker than previously.
