Review of revision 1064351 [Passed][edit]

Problems and errors[edit]

WA is the only region we have an ag source, and it suggests over-all the weather will be *negative*. 45-50% chance of above average rainfall means 50-55% chance of below average rainfall. (More importantly, it states harvest predictions of 21.9m, which is up from last year's 21.7m but down from earlier predictions of 22.5m)

This article is for all intents and purposes a re-write of the Australian article, with almost no improvement over the original. No one even went to find the original forecasts, which can be found here. The article was poorly written (although I have to thank whoever realized that northern hemisphere readers are often too self-centered to remember the seasons are opposite in the southern hemisphere.) It should not have been published in its earlier form as it consistently stated prognostications as facts. - Amgine | t 16:36, 23 July 2010 (UTC)[reply]
