Oh, come on, Chris Harries, I thought you were above that level of spurious exaggeration.
I am not sure what the good burgers did, were they to slow on approving windmills, or perhaps its just not dramatic enough to show the king tide 2m higher down at Salamanca, which is the most likely outcome for 2100.
What are the costs of protecting the foundations of the Customs House or the Henry Jones Buildings. How will City Hall cope?. Around at the Btanical Gardens their Strategic Plan has to be reviewed becuase the lower part of the Garden has become a salt marsh.
I am sure there are other examples all along the tidal part of the Derwent.
The cryosphere will not stabilize for some time. The pic just needs a number greater than 1 to make the reality more and more likely.
Its why the Small Island States wnated a 1.5dC limit and even then it just puts off the day.
Rudd saved us from the abyss to guarantee coastal inundation. Brilliant. Just so long as it doesn’t happen in his term of office.
The abandonment of the foreshore followed by the low lying coast is one of the adaptations that has to be made for a failure to comprehensively and effectively mitigate in a tinmely way greenhouse gases.
Ah woodworker (#1),
No I’m not. Satire allows for exaggeration, or you would have to scoff at every cartoonist in town.
The fundamental message is: Copenhagen failed to deal with climate change – including rises in sea level that will affect every coastal nation.
As for specifics, we can leave that to the expert scientists, albeit accepting that they can do no more than try to predict the levels of such calamity that will ensue by 2100.
I have to believe that woody is just taking the piss ! no one ! in view of so much scientific information and world weather change could be such an imbecile as to truly believe in the the stuff he quotes here this place.
