already in Australia -- the desert is spreading and things just won't
grow. And island nations like New Zealand will be spared that kind of

"New Zealand could lead the world by being the perfect 'lifeboat' and
taking that just right number of people that you can support and feed
and the rest of it, and doing it building proper cities. That's going
to take the money and the effort. Trying to stop global warming is
almost a certain waste of time."
