More climate sense, this time from Victoria, where draconian planning restrictions based on fanciful sea level rise predictions have been “watered down” (ho, ho):
The State Government will relax planning rules designed to address the impact of climate change in town’s along Victoria’s coastline.
The previous Labor government blocked construction in areas that would be affected by a predicted 80 centimetre sea level rise.
A report by the Coastal and Climate Change Advisory Committee recommended reducing those restrictions to a predicted 20 centimetre sea level rise by 2040 for existing towns. (source)
It’s a small step, but at least it’s in the right direction.
