It rained so much in Australia that sea level dropped

So what's new about that? Climate changes have always affected sea level. Also, it was weather that brought the excess rain patterns to Australia and not some result of climate changes.
 
more extreme weather is a result of this completely provable effect of burning fossil fuels
 
extreme weather events


don't you guys ever read any of the science articles in the paper?

How is shifting rain patterns extreme weather? How does CO2 re-radiating infrared radiation affect the rain patterns? You need to show how the warming led to the shifting. You have to disprove all other possible factors to lay blame on CO2.

Good luck
 
Is the OP weather incident a case of extreme weather patterns?

no such thing. patterns don't come in extreme variety

You really don't get it. give up. You have been brainwashed to see the world through an alarmist lens. You can choose to believe otherwise.
 
Desh, you are just a silly alarmist who has never read a real scientific paper. You get your view from journalists
 
FTA:

New research led by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) shows that when three atmospheric patterns came together over the Indian and Pacific oceans, they drove so much precipitation over Australia in 2010 and 2011 that the world’s ocean levels dropped measurably. Unlike other continents, the soils and topography of Australia prevent almost all of its precipitation from running off into the ocean.



Now dumby desh, how does it have to do with climate change?
 
Has anyone bothered to read the OP?

The water that falls on Australia doesn't return to the ocean as fast as water that falls elsewhere.

So obviously, if a lot of water falls on Australia the sea level of the ocean system will drop temporarily.

This makes perfect sense if you spend even a moment to think about it.


The 2010-11 event temporarily halted a long-term trend of rising sea levels caused by higher temperatures and melting ice sheets.

Now that the atmospheric patterns have snapped back and more rain is falling over tropical oceans, the seas are rising again. In fact, with Australia in a major drought, they are rising faster than before.

“It’s a beautiful illustration of how complicated our climate system is,” says NCAR scientist John Fasullo, the lead author of the study. “The smallest continent in the world can affect sea level worldwide. Its influence is so strong that it can temporarily overcome the background trend of rising sea levels that we see with climate change.”​
