We could build some huge dams, and just pump the sea water back on land. Anyone for swimming-pool australia?

That wont work because it will all soak back into the oceans.. The only real solution is to build a huge pipe from the ocean out into space and using the natural vacuum of space fire the excess water into the sun.

My idea would work. You would just need to coat australia in a layer of polythene first. Ayers rock (or threadbo, come to think of it) would also be coated, and turned into giant waterslides.

You would also need a giant pool cover as evaporation would eventually return the water to the sea.

Or use some of the excess Global Warming heat to evaporate water directly from the sea. The water vapour forms clouds, which reflect more sunlight back into space, and so reduce the solar gain, thereby cooling the planet.

Oh wait, that's already happening...

But all the crocodiles, sharks and chest impaling sting rays would scare off the tourists.

And do you really want Russel Crowe in a pair of speedo's playing lifeguard :(

Unfortunately, I watched it for the first time a few months ago. Just terrible.

So, the bad thing about rising levels is the cost to human life? Is that the main concern? If so, I don't give a stuff.

True. Although the pool cover would mostly be to keep the leaves (and seagulls) off. As for evaporation, that's what the pumps are for. Just keep pumping (and adding another row of breezeblocks around the top of the pool)

No. The bad thing about rising sea levels is dennis hopper on a jetski. I'm beginning to think that you didn't pay any attention when you were watching the movie...
