Co-author Professor Robert M (Bob) Carter has commented on a momentous decision in Australia related to sea levels, possibly influenced by a report by himself and Waikato University's Dr Willem De Lange. "So far as I am aware, this is the first time that a serving Western cabinet minister has ever publicly rejected the advice of IPCC in such an abrupt fashion as this. The new and sensible policy of treating the coastal zone as a geomorphically active one and insisting on the application of empirical data at specific locations (rather than generalized computer projections) for planning and management purposes, the NSW government is following almost to the letter the advice....in our reports." The decision has been hailed in UK as "sanity from downunder."
