Listen for real risks -----you dummies

"Crikey" , even crikey can't get past the hype . Foreign coorespeondenet does a questionable story on flooding islands in the pacific a few wekks ago ( and not one squark is heard anbout tectonics in that simple story or should we say construct ---allowing, as one margaret mead did some decades before, the allowance of the residents to tell reporters what they wanted to hear ???
Crikey prints the portrait painters manifesto on distaster management ( 12 points) and why you should worry - the der 's themsleves! > item 12 is
12. In the next 50-100 years, 21% of the Tasmanian coast is at risk of erosion and significant recession from predicted sea-level rises;
where did they get that garbage from !
