Today I gave a presentation to Thames Coromandel District Council about the latest research on sea level rise from the world’s ice sheet experts. These experts say there is a 1 in 20 chance of 2 m of sea level rise by 2100. This is double the figure used in Government guidance for councils in New Zealand of 1m.
Watch here –
The Mayor and some councillors in Thames Coromandel Council must trust the science of human-induced climate change (rather than thinly disguised denial) and take urgent action to reduce Council’s own emissions and declare a climate emergency.
