Learn how climate changes are affecting Dorset coast

First published in News

NEW sessions are being held about the threat of climate change and rising sea levels on the Dorset coast.

The Living with a Changing Coast (LiCCo) project is running the series of roadshows from September 14 to October 27.

The Coffee and Coast meetings aim to inform and involve those most directly affected by the changing coast.

The initiative aims to prepare communities to take an active role in planning for a future in which the coastline is increasingly affected by climate change and rising sea levels.

People will be able to find out more about the issues facing key locations and plans to manage coastal change.

There will be visual displays introducing the main topics and LiCCo representatives will be on hand to answer questions. The roadshows take place at Wareham Town Hall on September 14 from 1pm to 6pm and September 15 from 10am to 6pm.

Others will be at Studland Village Hall on September 28-29 from 10am to 6pm and Studland Discovery Centre on October 26-27 from 10am to 4pm.

Exaggeration isn’t a crime, yet!
Meanwhile, the entire world of SCIENCE, journalism and progressivism had allowed bank-funded and corporate-run “CARBON TRADING STOCK MARKETS” to trump 3rd world fresh water relief, starvation rescue and 3rd world education for just over 26 years of insane attempts at climate CONTROL.
Science has NEVER said a crisis “WILL” happen, only that it “might” and “could” etc. Find us one single IPCC warning that is without maybes. Help, my house is on fire maybe? There isn’t a crisis worse than a climate crisis so what does it take to make the scientists say it “WILL” happen?
*Obama has not mentioned the crisis in the last two State of the Unions addresses.
*TRUTH DIGGER; Julian Assange is of course a climate change denier.
*Occupywallstreet does not even mention CO2 in its list of demands because of the bank-funded carbon trading stock markets run by corporations.
*Socialist Canada killed Y2Kyoto with a newly elected climate change denying prime minister and nobody cared, especially the millions of scientists warning us of unstoppable warming (death).
How many climate change scientists does it take to change an energy saving compact florescent light bulb?
None but they do have full consensus that it WILL change.
President Romney says; “Thanks for threatening the voter’s children with deaths by CO2 and fear mongering the votes over to my side!”

I'll keep is short for you remaining climate blame believers:

mememine69,
Simply repeating what you have already written does not actually clarify the point you are trying to make.
Also please stop writing odd words in upper-case and overusing quotes as the incorrect use of English grammar reduces even further your ability to put forward a point of view.

Mememine is, sadly, canadian. Search any of his bullet points and find his little cut-and-paste footy prints everywhere. He appears to be on a mission to save us all from a fascist green dictatorship.

And can we stop using phrases like "climate change denier". A denier refuses to accept a fact. Climate change - and especially the man made element of it - is still a hypothesis and not proven. If somebody disagrees with a hypothesis it does not make them worthy of ridicule. Great scientific minds including people like Sir Patrick Moore have been ridiculed purely because their view runs contrary to the supposed consensus.

The coastline here has been changing since the bronze age, so do we need a road show to tell us?
Why is this money being wasted?
Don't they know there's a tax revenue crisis on? Clearly not.

The sea levels have been changing along the Jurassic Coast since prehistoric times. The climate has been changing even longer. They are both indisputable facts. Everything else though, is disputable. Including whether a tax on climate change will stop sea levels rising. Might as well wait until Charles becomes King, and sit him out on the beach, ordering the tide to go out Cnut style. You know it won't obey a King any more than it will obey the taxman.

It's funny how you misread things when you skim read. I thought you were being rude about HRH. But I'm glad we are agreed that he is not just a modern Cnut.

This just shows that some of us would do well to attend the sessions, we mightthen be in possession of the 'facts' rather than 'opinions'.

Some of us already are, TenBob. You don't need to attend a workshop to gain knowledge. I recommend starting with "The Great Global Warming Swindle" by Christopher Booker. In it, you will learn precisely what the IPCC really is, the lie that there is a consensus of over 1700 scientists (there is no consensus amongst the scientists, but there are only a few dozen of these, the rest are climate activists), the lie about sea level rise (ie, where there is a change in water level, it is due to subsidence), how damage to coasts is being attributed to global warming when it is actually down to changes in tidal flows caused by building piers, groins and coastal defences, how unattributed statements find their way into mainstream policy (eg, Himalayan glacier melt, actually due to local factors). You will learn how experts in their field (including Arctic ice experts and polar bear experts) have their evidence removed from the IPCC reports despite being recognized as experts in their fields, and invitations to speak at IPCC conferences revoked,purely because their evidence does not back the consensus view. But most heinous of all,you will learn that we humans have done so much damage that not only is the temperature rising here on earth, it's also doing so throughout the solar system. But enjoy the workshop anyway. I'm sure you'll get a balanced view.
