Global Coldening in Australia?

Now here's something astounding from our friends in the Southern Hemisphere:
LAST month Australians endured our coldest June since 1950. Imagine that; all those trillions of tonnes of evil carbon we've horked up into the atmosphere over six decades of rampant industrialisation, and we're still getting the same icy weather we got during the Cold War.
So writes Tim Blair in the Daily Telegraph. Gosh, who knew? Blair provides some helpful, definitive observations from a "global warming" expert lest acolytes of the Goracle (DO check this link) become too perturbed:
But climate change is like Michael Moore's tracksuit - it can fit anyone. In 2005, Greenpeace rep Steven Guilbeault helpfully explained: "Global warming can mean colder, it can mean drier, it can mean wetter, that's what we're dealing with."
Now that we've straightened out that arcane bit of hard science, I'm sure we'll all sleep more easily tonight.
