"With appropriate management, the lake could continue relatively unchanged for hundreds, possibly thousands of years to come."

Nope. New vaca hotspot for today's yuppies.

So THAT'S the reason to switch from "Global Warming" to "Climate Change" - not only is it not getting warmer, but it's not even global!

Let's stock the lake with Bass and make it a real paradise.

Well, that settles it.  6,456,987 examples of climate change to 1 against.  I'm buying a gas guzzling Humvee!

Well of course you would find this on a continent that seems to have evolved thousands of ways to kill you

Are "yuppies" still a thing? I'd wager they're in walkers by now. Young Urban Professionals was a thing back with Duran Duran and men in makeup.

"Mostly Global Warming"

Actually, this isn't even #1. Averages just don't work like that. Unless you're a republican.

This is vaguely interesting.  Is there a map where climate change is happening and where it is not?

Although the term yuppie originated way back when  there are still new yuppies being born every day.

How do you know it wasn't climate change that kept that area pristine?

Looks like it's happening where people don't live.

I love that the Earth did just fine there for 7500 years, but NOW it needs people to manage it!

Appropriate management simply means keeping keeping other people from farking it up.

[Smash cut: 20 yrs later] - Scientist recall finding the last place on Earth that was untouched by climate change.  They now consider allowing Dasani to set up a water mining operation as the first step in the wrong direction.

It would seem to me that if it's lived through the last few thousand years of human intervention with no significant change that appropriate management would best be defined as, "don't do a damn thing"

Pew wee!  Those numbers stink.  What did you pull them out of?  A climatologist's "bag-o-facts"?

Looks like a great place for large dock, a marina, waterskiing, condos over there, big water slide..it will be great!!

Asked if an influx of tourists could change the lake, Dr Barr said he could not speculate.

Yup give it about 1 yr.. the lake is farked!
Humans may be good at a lot of things but conservation and keeping the Earth in it's natural state is not one of them. It's counter productive to everything which makes us human.

"Global warming" is a snappier title than "510,072,000 - 10km2 warming"

How about a nice cup of make chit up out of random talking bytes.

Let's see now.  For 40,000 years, the Aborigines were the only humans living in Australia.  The first interlopers from Europe showed up about 330 years ago.  The Abos did a lot of marvelous things over their 40,000 years of dominance of the continent, but scientific research and map making weren't really their forte.  Yet, TFA reports that a bunch of researchers from the University of Adelaide have proclaimed an obscure lake in a remote area of Australia has been untouched and remains exactly the way it was 7500 years ago.  How did they come up with that?  Did they review the literature handed down by the Abos?  Did they come by some satellite imagery taken 7500 years ago?

Or maybe they did exactly what the article said and came to a reasonably probable conclusion by inference using the evidence they actually had.....
 
2013-06-04 02:36:32 PM  
OK, now wait a minute...

Researcher in TFA article says the lake is like God's bathtub, and has been that way for 7500 years.

But every good Christian knows the Earth has only been around for 6000 years, so how is this even possible for God to have a bathtub that long ago?

Can God build a bathtub that even he can not possibly bathe in?

Takes time to fill it. Duh. You don't just get in the bathtub and sit down in the dry bottom before it fills.

Which presumes that God needs a bath.

wait it's on farking straddie?! Are you serious.

This isn't some remote middle of buttfark no where place. It's like... 20 minutes from Brisbane. I could go visit this lake on my way home from work and still be home in time for dinner.
