Notwithstanding the fact that South Africa hosted COP17 two months ago, compulsory carbon dioxide emissions control measures do not feature in South Africa's budget announced last week. This is a huge relief for those of us who maintain that these measures and the global climate models on which they are based have no substance in science.
There is however another increasingly serious issue. As our available water resources approach depletion, environmental concerns have become an important obstacle. These obstacles can only be overcome by multi-disciplinary/multi-institutional approaches. Simple examples are given in the attached memo.
Just to remind you, this is the relevant University of Pretoria website for my handbook and technical report.
