ABC REPORTED: ABC reported on comments made by Queensland's Emergency Services Minister Neil Roberts who says "long-term weather forecasts show the state could be facing its worst storm season in years."
THE COMPLAINT: Can ABC clarify which long term forecasts were being referred to? Why didn't ABC's reporter ask the question?
A quick check of the BOM website indicates this years forecast are yet to be released:
"Tropical Cyclone Seasonal Outlook for Queensland
The tropical cyclone season extends from November to April. The outlook for the 2010/11 tropical cyclone season will be issued in October 2010."See http://www.bom.gov.au/qld/cyclone/seasonal/OUTCOME: Pending
COMMENT: Another example of "Faith in Authority". Where's the evidence?
