Global Warming to increase crime levels

Yep, apparently according to the ABC:

A new report from the Strategic Policy Institute says climate change could lead to an increase in crime.

...the report's author, Anthony Bergin, is predicting global warming will lead to an increase in violent crime and so called 'climate crime'.

More police resources may be needed to cope with an influx of migrants from low lying areas as the sea level rises.

The pointlessness of a Prius

Australian Climate Madness explains the pointlessness of hybrid cars:

The latest advert for the Toyota Prius claims that by driving one for 10 years or 100,000km, you can save 7.5 tonnes of CO2 as compared to a regular petrol-engined car.

Let's put that into perspective. If you drove a Prius for, say, 70,000 years, you would save the same amount of CO2 that a large coal-fired power station generates in a day.

Moral of the story: don't fool yourself into thinking that driving a butt-ugly hybrid car is anything but a feel-good gesture.
