hairyfish writes: In Australia, acting NSW Premier, Andrew Stoner, has dismissed extreme weather predictions for the state of NSW by the federal government's Climate Commission as ''alarmist''. "We have heard of all our dams drying up in the past. We've heard predictions of the central coast and other coastal parts of the state going under water, the polar ice caps melting. I'm sorry, none of this has happened. As time goes on I think these people's credibility will be found wanting.''
