          I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about Kiwi, maybe check your negativity into NZ customs they seem to love it.

                The environmental movement's habit of crying wolf is their own worst enemy. I've lost track of how many "we only have X many years to save the world" headlines I've seen. But their deadlines have come and gone like an HR demand to attend sensitivity training, and much like the HR demand they're long since forgotten and ignored.

                Nothing to do with importation. It s the environmental modification and way of life habits that are responsible of a pandemic of cancers, diabetis, cardiovascular diseases, neurodegenerative diseases and a decrease in fertility.
                FYI third world countries adopting western way of life are seeing the same trend but quicker.
                The first killers in several developing countries are not tropical diseases anymore but "rich world" not transmissible diseases.

                As for the doom and gloom i partly agree with you. However remember that at the end of the story there was a wolf that ate the kid..

                Plus people are not wired to foresee negative consequences. Human brain refuses that. It always happen to somebody else. Until it happens to you too

                  Just some new datas
                  Natural disasters from 1998 and 2017 costed 2 521 billions of $ with 77% of them being climatic disasters (storm, drought, bush fires, landslides and heavy rains etc)
                  Natural disasters from 1977 to 1998 costed half that (1 131 billions of $) with 68% of them being climatic disasters

                    are those figures adjusted for inflation/value of currency - or are they just another con

                    as we build more and develop more the more it costs to fix it when it gets swept away

                    bit like building in the UK - idiots build houses on flood planes and then moan when they get flooded

                    same as people who want to live by the sea until they are up to their neck in it

                      Thought this was quite the Churchill phrase

                      Those figures pale in comparison to the gross total the mafia will be taxing us all.

                        Please don’t tell me you don’t see the silliness of this comparison.

                        Mobile phones from 1998 to 2000 cost $50
                        Mobile phones from 2017 to 2018 cost $600
                        Conclusion: Global warming must have caused aluminum prices to skyrocket.

                          Now you are being disingenuous
                          68 % of natural disasters impacts from 77 to 98 were climate related
                          77 % of natural disasters impacts from 98 to 2017 were climate related
                          Conclusion : more people are affected by more frequent extreme climatic events.
                          Keep your head buried

                            Of course, infrastructure costs have increased from 1977 to 2017 as well as their distribution
                            The important metric that seems lost to some of you is the increase in proportionality of climate related disasters role
                            68% during the 77-98 era and 77% during the 98-2017 era. Which means more climate related disasters than geologic disasters
                            Which means that climate is changing and going toward more extreme events
                            That's all

                            As for the people building houses on flood area i agree but, just tell me who is responsible to give building authorizations (at least in regulated first world countries)
                            Our ancients were wiser, they always built on hills away from rivers and floodable lowlands when possible (not talking of special cases like Holland)
                            Today, mayors are giving authorization of building like candies and you end up with large urban or sub urban areas flooded
                            Moreover, mass concretization of landscape is not helping water flows. You can build your house in a not floodable area and see it flooded later because a complex is built 500 m aways and that the roads, parking lots, buildings and forest arazing have modified the water flow.
                            That's exactly what we have in the area where i live. Too quick, too large urbanization

                            That's also why i bought a house on a hill

                                I hope you bought a house at least a decade old. The way new houses are built nowadays (quickly finished, badly finished) is also a concern.
                                Stabilization time of the underground once the fundations dug is halfeld (or sometimes plainly ignored)
                                Which means at worst chance of landslide if on a hill
                                Or at best sponge effect of dry/wet ground with cracks in the walls and paint/plaster/concrete and finally house falling apart
