“THE collapse of the Copenhagen summit and the global financial crisis highlighted the “folly” of any nation taking action on climate change that harmed its own comparative advantage, John Howard has warned.

In the foreword to a new report criticising the decision-making processes of the UN’s International Panel on Climate Change, the former prime minister said he remained “agnostic” on climate change and believed attempts to close down the debate were “disgraceful and must be resisted”.

Larry – 75 Metres Of Sea Level Rise “If you leave us at 450ppm for long enough it will probably melt all the ice – that’s a sea rise of 75 metres. What we have found is that the target we have all been aiming for is a disaster – a guaranteed disaster,” Hansen told the Guardian. http://www.guardian.co.uk/

In summary, the permanent drought in Australia is producing too much rain, which is causing sea level to rapidly fall to catastrophically high levels.
