@Banana, I posted some data there about a week ago in response to your disinformation piece from RTE, and you disappeared afterwards. Care to comment now about it, or are you just going to predictable feign the impression that you have no idea what I'm talking about?
How exactly am I a ‘neolib’ can you define that please?

Yes, Australia is a land of flooding rains. But climate change could be making it worse

I find it amazing that the Hawkesbury-Napean valley has become so built up, given that the record high flood level recorded there was almost 20 metres way back in 1867.

Quote:
Improving our understanding of historical weather data may help improve future climate change risk assessment. For example, past floods in the Hawkesbury–Nepean have been a lot worse than the current disaster. In 1867, the Hawkesbury River at Windsor reached 19.7 metres above normal, and in 1961 peaked at 14.5 metres. This is worse than the 13.12 metres above normal recorded at Freemans Reach on March 23.

It’s sobering to think the Hawkesbury River once peaked 6 metres higher than what we’re seeing right now. Imagine the potential future flooding caused by an East Coast Low during strong La Niña conditions.

At what point is it a run away climate?

Presumably beyond 1.5 degrees.

What happens when 5 million people die suddenly in a week when WB temps go above 37c and the power grid fails

That’s a genuine question by the way

Millions of people, women, men, children, dying suddenly in a short space of time because their bodies cannot cool down because the air is warmer than their skin. Power grids aren’t designed to take that A/C load, so there will be brownouts and failures. Not only poor people die, but people who thought they had prepared and mitigated for such events are killed too

It might start as a once off ‘extreme’ event

But what happens when it happens again and millions more die

Suddenly the cost of geoengineering seems small compared to millions of innocent people dropping dead in a horrific slow motion car crash
When? You mean IF.

He's been spending too much time reading the book of Revelations, all those plagues, unbearable heat, cataclysms of all sorts, except flooding! That's not mentioned. God stuck to his word to date, he said he wouldn't do it again. (Isaiah 54:9)

The solution as always: admit your sinful nature, and repent.
