After now seeing the damage a category 4 cyclone, [Hamilton Island] & a medium category 3, [Proserpine] can do, perhaps we can expect something better from our politicking weather bureau.

After exaggerating greatly the last one that went close by Yeppoon, claiming it was a cat 4, the weather bureau has given a lot of people a false sense of security with cyclones. It was obvious to those with experience that it was no cat 4 that went through there, more like a high 2, but the greenies & the bureau maintained the claims.

Politicking with the claimed increase in sever cyclones to be caused by global warming, they exaggerated wind strengths, making people much more vulnerable, when the real thing comes along.

Well now everyone can see the effect of a real 4. With people complacent after seeing little damage in a claimed 4, many were at much greater danger with the real thing this time.

If our government is worth its keep, there should be more than a few heads rolling out the doors of the bureau, so they canít do it again. After proving their first interest is not public safety, but political games, they must go

You are blaming the umpire because the rules have changed and no one knows the consequences.
Climate change is proving to be unpredictable in many and varied ways, and it is no different around the world.
Expect more unpredictable events to follow and become even more unpredictable.
The only true forecast is not predictions from days ago, the predictions change every ten minuites. Which makes information to the public very complicated.
All rain or cyclone events need to be broadcast through our national carrier the ABC. As a priority broadcast.
Things are getting worse as the months roll on, so expect the unexpected and quit whinging.

Wow, that's the best yet doog.

No one else has claimed that climate change changes both satellite & radar images, so you can't read them correctly.

Nor has anyone else claimed it changes the damage done by the wind. After seeing the pictures of the damage at Yeppoon, & Proserpine, it is pretty obvious to any honest person, the wind strength even in those areas was very different. Add the damage at Hamilton, which was a real cat 4, & there is just no comparison. Could it be climate change changes pictures do you think?

It is really disgusting to support lies, just because you have fallen for a scam.

yeah it wasn't long back that the gw alarmist were complaining about lack of cyclones for Barrier Reef. Now they are blaming gw for cyclones. You can't win with pig headed people who deny true science and support the idiotic gw narrative. Just ' believe' is their religous mantra. No wonder they have accepted the drongos who claim evolution is a fact.

Doog claiming a Cyclone is Climate Change is stupid! These are regular events and as usual because there is so much money in "Climate Change" all the political fraudsters are out in force lying their bottoms off. We certainly need the Bureau to have it's funding slashed on the proviso that it is not good enough. It has never been much good but with the end is nigh, pay me more money brigade running things it has got out of hand.
At some stage Australia is going to have to slash and burn the public service and the sooner the better. My first in line would be the useless, overpriced popinjays at the BOM.

'Unconscionable' Adam Bandt slammed for linking Cyclone Debbie to proposed coal plant

Greens MP Adam Bandt has linked the fatal Cyclone Debbie raging across northern Queensland to a proposed new coal-fired power plant and climate change, saying more people will suffer with the burning of more coal.

With the storm already having claimed one life, Federal Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg condemned the Greens' comments as "unconscionable and hysterical."
