The dam has broken. Government scientists now simply make up random sea level numbers and report them directly to the press.
Australian sea levels to rise by three feet unless climate change is halted
Sea levels will rise by more than three feet by the end of the century making severe coastal flooding a common factor of life in Australia if urgent action is not taken to limit climate change, a key report by a panel of climate scientists has found.
There is zero evidence to support this claim. Sea level rise has slowed over the last five years, and even the highest reported rates are less than one tenth of that. Over the last 18 months, sea level has fallen 5-20 mm by all measures.
In business, people get prosecuted for making baseless high predictions.
