Flemington Racecourse – a bad climate change bet

Here’s an unfamiliar view of Flemington Racecourse. With a patch of blue for tides onto the track.

This is OzCoasts’ map for the impact of 110cm of sea level rise. This is the amount of sea level rise we are on track for this century – unless greenhouse gas emissions are reduced sharply, and soon.

By taking actions like pricing greenhouse gas emissions, and increasing support for renewable energy and energy efficiency.

The sort of actions that Tony Abbott’s reckless and irresponsible government are reversing.

Do we really want to place this bet – that the rest of the world will just bail us out on climate change, and we can be “leaners”  who don’t need to even weigh in for the race?
