Main reason for the glaring omissions is that the references & knowledge of change of climate were deleted &/Or changed to suit doctrine/dogma (nice movie by the way), during the time of George HW.Bush in office via his misbegotten son as a proxy.
The result is that there is nothing to really go on.
Main problem is that the whitehouse thanks to the misinformation still regards the climate as running according to the Jason model which ran with a cold polar hood & strong gulf stream.
We are now just warm enough to run in climate mode#3 which re started again in April 2012 and has as a result increased the efficiency of the cooling system of the planet cooling the equator, warming the poles (they still complain in wintertime), and as an aside also resulting in the Gulf stream current slowing to a crawl during late summer-early winter when the arctic ice out is at a max.
The result is a flattening of the temperate rainbelt to a latitude that varies from approximately N. Ireland down to central Mediterranean (at least in Europe), and a simultaneous loss of fixed or semi regular monsoonal flows (resulting in a pulsating monsoon in India for example, and a loss of the southerly gulf/mexico monsoonal flows that kept the USA plains watered in summertime). The same change in climate mode and E. drift of monsoonal roots (no longer fixed in longitude), resulted in the Atlantic hurricane season being almost entirely Atlantic last year.
The climate mode is at its coldest right now & is not carrying much water, hence as a result it got rather dry & hot in OZ with no penetration of recurving tropical storms inland from the E.Rainforest belt.
Expect summer droughts to continue.
No doubt the Obama run whitehouse will eventually get the right model to use when they drag Jason off the streetcorner where the Bush regime dumped him. He needs to write a new model that fits the current mode, for hotter versions of the same mode you could always call on a palaeontologist specialising in vegetation from the Cretaceous where the mode was running hot.
One point in his favour is that he is at least able to kick FEMA up the jacksey, & get them to respond fast when a major storm disaster hits. He gets a few brownie points for doing that (& lots of votes too).
I would also appreciate it if he got the Labour party UK to apologise for giving me that gaoddamn stupid nickname. Would also appreciate it if I actually had a conversation with jason over modelling of climate mode#3 (and also modes #1 and #4 which are classical ice age modes that we see echoes of today with the earth still warming from their shutdown).
Have a nice day: Ag
