Gov't Report: Australia just experienced the 'coldest autumn since at least 1950'

According to a report recently issued by the Australian National Meteorological Service, the country experienced the coldest autumn (March 1 - May 31, 2011) "since at least 1950" with mean temperatures 1.15C below the historical average. By way of comparison, the total global warming since the end of the Little Ice Age around 1850 is only 0.7C. In addition, Australia is currently experiencing the best ski season since 1990.
An area (dark blue) about the same size as California had the 'lowest temperatures on record' and most of the rest of the country was 'very much below average' to 'below average'
