Sydney Today, on March 3, Australia Eastern Time, the government encountered many problems in dealing with sea level rise. One of them is that a developer will lead residents to file a lawsuit against the council on waterfront planning restrictions.

Guidelines recently issued by the Lake Macquarie Council stated that the houses of more than 3 people living within 10000 meters above sea level are likely to be flooded by the end of this century. But a real estate developer named Jeff McCloy pointed out that he plans to lead a class action against the Security Council to overturn this "worldwide stupid idea of ​​rising sea levels." McCloy recently arranged for climate change skeptics Ian Plimer, Bob Carter and David Archibald to give public speeches to the council and residents, and confessed that these reports convinced most people. The New South Wales Government has re-formulated its plan for sea level rise, including suspending sea level-related planning and construction activities before conducting more thorough studies.

McCloy is applying to build a building with 24 houses. The plan is likely to be affected by the guidelines of the Lake Macquarie plan. He said: "This is not only related to my interests, but also to those who spend a lot of money to buy a house. The interests of the broad masses of people.” He also said that he has conducted a careful study of sea level rise on the Internet. He found that the rate of sea level rise is very slow, and the rate has continued to slow down in recent years, so any planning The restrictions are unreasonable. The Lake Macquarie Council insists that its guidelines are based on scientific research.

Alice Howe, Permanent Council Member of the Security Council: "Our position is based on science. In November last year, we revised our policy based on newly drawn flooded areas. We have informed all affected residents. These areas include one in A low-lying seaside area that will be partially submerged at the end of this century, a medium-sized area that may be affected by extreme weather and high tides, and an external area that includes an area 11 meters above sea level. This area will likely be 3 Affected by extreme weather.

The drawing of the map is based on changes in the climate that lead to changes in sea level under the influence of existing building plans. A committee led by Environment Minister Robyn Parker will review the coast’s guidelines. A government spokesperson pointed out: "The establishment of this task force to formulate relevant guidelines and policies is an important step in ensuring coastal erosion and other coastal disasters in New South Wales."
