TIME TO HEAD FOR THE HILLS

The accuracy of short term weather forecasts is iffy at best, yet the situation in hundreds of years is forecastable:

On the time scale of this century, which will be in the lifetime of young adults texting away today, sea level rise attributed to just the Antarctic is projected to be about 1 metre.

“Which is already a disastrous level of sea level rise. A metre is enough to be extremely costly,” Dr England said.

With the continuing-as-usual emissions scenario, the projected sea level rise from the Antarctic is forecast to be about 15 metres by 2500.

“Which is staggering, because Sydney is not viable at 15 metres of sea level rise,” Dr England said.

Not to worry, Elon Musk will have by then moved everyone to Mars.
