Opinion: Sea-level rise, land values

The South Coast Regional Sea Level Rise Planning and Policy Response Framework is the Eurobodalla Shire Council’s ‘Policy of intent’ for its coastal zone.

It would ensnare over 6000 properties with section 149 endorsements with the potential to seriously affect their property values.

I raise it to alert those who live in other coastal shires and to explain the influences driving  it.

“The Australian Public Service (APS) works in public administration roles within Australian Government departments and agencies, providing information, services and support to almost every part of Australian life.  Similar protocols apply at State and Local Government levels within Australia.

Then, in regard to ‘nebulous climate-change’ we have the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) applying its influence with the CSIRO and BoM.  This process is being misused to portray what is claimed to be scientific certainty to impose political ideas for their mutual self-interest and protection.

The IPCC was established and funded from 1988 by UN organisations: the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO), and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).  UNEP represents the politics of the Greens.  Australia’s permanent representative on the WMO is from BoM, whose scientists like those from the CSIRO play leading roles in the development of IPCC’s Assessment Reports including AR5 Summary for Policymakers published in 2013/2014.

CSIRO and BoM echo and promote the IPCC political orthodoxy: ‘That DAGW (Dangerous Anthropogenic Global Warming) exists; its cause is man-made CO2 emissions (linking it to energy production); and, its solution – ‘decarbonize the planet’.

This represents the assumed scope of the computer models’ virtual realities on which, the IPCC depends, and in which the orthodox alarmist claims, including sea-level rise, are created, assessed and promoted.

Incredibly and absurdly, natural influences are assumed to follow the models.

The CSIRO is a key adviser for ESC’s Policy of Intent. Eurobodalla residents have shown it is a product of IPCC orthodoxy.  More importantly eleven independent international climate scientists have submitted a report totally repudiating ESC’s Policy of Intent.

It is time for the CSIRO and BoM scientists to test their integrity and validity in public debate with  those independent scientists.

Ethical ESC councillors must vote to ensure this happens.
