    “The Crank”
    Jinters (with the teeth) is promoting her religion, and yes she should go to Wellington, and stay there. Quite the little public servant in the making. And we all know what we think of those sort.

    Councillor takes govt to task on rising sea
    By Chris Morris
    Dunedin city councillor Jinty MacTavish has blasted the ”complete absence of leadership” from central government over climate change, leaving ratepayers to face a possible $75 million bill to protect part of the city from sea level rise. Her rebuke came as councillors at last week’s planning and regulatory committee meeting debated a report by consultant Beca, outlining the threat posed by sea level rise to Dunedin’s harbourside and south city areas. The report suggested measures including a network of pumps and wells would be needed over the next century to protect the area, which was home to 10,000 people and $4.3 billion worth of infrastructure and property assets.

    • That would be nice work if they (Beca) could get it. At $4.3B – might be cheaper to let the sea have its way with South Dunners.

      • Peter.

        I have heard of the idea of ‘managed retreat’ from Phil Cole. It would be worth exploring this option further. Maybe the council is already doing this?

    Managed retreat or walled/other defence only needed if the sea level is rising appreciably.

      I was at the beach the other day and within an hour the sea rose completely covering an area where I had previously drawn a rude picture in the sand with a stick. Yes, Jinty is correct. The sea is rising.

    Lady Counterblast’s butler, Spasm, another raving loony played by Williams, would croak, “We be all doomed; I got a touch of the dooms!”

    Hope that helps.
