A new report has warned that up to 250,000 homes around Australia will
be inundated due to climate change by the turn of the century.
The Federal Government report titled Climate Change Risks to
Australia's Coast is the most comprehensive assessment to date, taking
into account a projected 1.1-metre rise in sea level and an increasing
risk of extreme weather events like tidal and storm surges.
