The last interglacial had less ice, higher sea levels, and warmer temperatures than this one. So, according to the evidence so far, human activity must have a COOLING effect.

Betty, I'll bet London to a brick that the survey will reveal what the Government wants it to reveal!
The only true measure is the plight of the people and whether they will survive.

IMHO there is too much greed in this world. Me, me, me and then me again! No one seems to care about other people anymore.
Our governments have no idea how some people exist on the social payments. I know friends who go to 'give away' food places, like foodbank,
because he can't find a job at 54 and they have 3 teenage children living at home. Maybe Australia is not quite as desperate as the UK, but it won't be long until we get there too!

Godfather I agree with every word you have said.

In the U.K. the government have cut benefits and said that people need to earn what they receive and yet no-one knows where they will get these jobs to earn that money. :hitting_wall

I call it social inequality and this explains it in part.

I am not sure if the Work for the Dole system is still going on, but I do agree that it was a good way of getting people to do jobs that need doing in the communities......run by the State Government and as far as I know it still continues today. Much better than getting the Dole for nothing and it does keep the rhythm in one's life to get up and go to work.

I agree with you in one sense Maggs, but it is an even bigger incentive to get up if there was work with a proper living wage, also I think every case needs to be taken on merit.
