rates of the average Australian the world is doomed.
The world will survive just fine. The world has had much higher sea levels than now, plants love high CO2 levels. What you really mean is coastal cities may be forced to exist in a new way or move, the Netherlands has been below sea level for how long?
For every area that becomes too warm and dry for farming, another area that was too cold or wet now becomes available.

That's the 10 Billion humans question, who gets the resources. Eventually there is a limit to our population on this rock, will we just be content eating specifically engineered proteins and sitting home watching youtube wired directly to your brain, to handle more population or do we just have bigger wars where we wipe a big chunk out and start growing again..

Don't worry, Wuhan is always working on ways to control the population.

Overpopulation is not going to be the problem we thought it was.

Most developed countries have low to zero growth.

China has a shock coming due to the one child policy, something short of the 2.2 child replacement rate.

AGING populations are the new threat.

Perhaps Qantas intends to get its “fully renewable” power from the Kingaroy wind powerless farm..

About 17 minutes into this video of the QLD premier talking in front of a back ground of a non-working wind farm she says: “Watch this space, there’s a lot more to happen…”

Perhaps the white elephant might fly with a passing gaggle of pigs…

Qantas domestic cabin crew have applied to take protected action over fatigue concerns and claims of outsourcing.

The Flight Attendants Association of Australia (FAAA) said Qantas management "have threatened employees that they will not have access to work on new aircraft unless they sign onto new enterprise agreements that dramatically cut conditions" - Yahoo! Finance (13 October 2022)

Qantas shares surge as it forecasts stronger-than-expected first-half profit

The strong rebound in travel, combined with rising inflation, has led to threats of industrial action by some unionised staff because the airline was offering a two-year wage freeze followed by two years of 2% pay rises in its latest round of agreements.

Qantas said on Thursday it would increase the offer to a 3% increase after the wage freeze, at a cost of A$40 million a year. It is also offering bonuses worth around A$10,000 per employee - Reuters (13 October 2022)

I'd love to know what Deano thinks is an acceptable equivalent profit from little ol' underdog Rex

Especially considering that all the C-Suiter's, after today's share price move, coined an 8.7% increase in the value of their pay packets and/or share options

Imagine how big the profit would be if they’d tried running an airline, instead of a bag-losing passenger-stranding service.

the Netherlands has been below sea level for how long?
But they're wishing for a little water now, building are built on timber pilings, which because of the subsoil drying out are being eaten away by fungi, result, building subsidence/collapse. Dykes sinking also.

Correct; Aer Lingus 747s, Tower Air 747s, Martinair Holland 747-200C and DC-10-30.
