Catastrophic climate-change events may deliver superb outcomes—such as the formation of Australia:
A meteor’s roaring crash into Antarctica—larger and earlier than the impact that killed the dinosaurs—caused the biggest mass extinction in Earth’s history and likely spawned the Australian continent, scientists said.
Ohio State University scientists said the 483-kilometer-wide (300-mile-wide) crater is now hidden more than 1.6 kilometers (one mile) beneath the East Antarctic Ice Sheet.
Only one mile down? It should be visible any day now, according to Phillip Adams, who these days is pre-emptively and unilaterally satirising himself:
With global warming, the rising waters will pretty soon drown all those $20 million harbour-side mansions, adding to the pressure of boat people and refugees. And we won’t be able to process them on Pacific islands, because they’re all going under. In the next few weeks.
And people say that dinosaurs are extinct. Not so long as the Adamsaurus roams Paddington.
