When hell happens politicians will be blamed for being ostrich-headed on climate change

The Australian economy, like world economies, wiil be devastated by climate change , so the economy being an issue in this next election on November 24 is patently a taste of the past. Let them look at the future.

The evidence is there to see. Look at any natural disaster you remember (I’m thinking of Nicaragua less than two weeks ago) and trace the damage to the economy. And by the way geologists are beginning to blame earthquakes on sea levels rising, so factor those in too. I’ve always questioned how we didn’t damage the earth’s crust when we removed oil and gas but I’ve always been howled down by the experts (mostly employed by oil companies) proclaiming the idiocy of such imaginings. With sea level rises being suspected I think I’m quite within the boundaries of geological reason to suspect mining. I won’t digress further.

If one storm that was thought to only belt away at prisitine jungle finally destroyed the lives of 180,000 people, what are the multiplying storms, drought, floods, and power losses going to do. They are going to destroy industries, environments, countries. Our ostrich-headed politicans need to be thinking of how to supply water, food and power to decimated cities, and planning how to contain civil unrest. Afterall when hell happens it will be these politicans people will blame.
