Sir Lord Nicholas Stern , adviser to the British Government on climate change and author of the Stern Review Report on the Economics of Climate Change, has recently said:-
“We risk, if we don’t act strongly and act now, the destruction of the relationship between human beings and the planet. We risk something like, over the next century, a [temperature increase of] 5 degrees centigrade and more which we haven’t seen as a planet for 30 million years. Many parts of the world will be deserts, others will be under water. That’s why it’s so important”
Fair enough Nick, but at least the warmer weather will mean Melbourne retirees won’t have to move to the Gold Coast.
