It’s 4 from 4, Now do or die QF time for Sonny Wool!

Monday 3 October 2011

It’s 4 from 4, Now do or die QF time for Sonny Wool!

All eyes are on Sonny Wool for this weeks choice, as the 3 year old psychic sheep who so far has predicted all four outcomes of the All Blacks games in this years Rugby World Cup will make his prediction on Wednesday at Berhampore in South Wellington.

Dan Boyd, Star Sheep Agent says, “It will be very interesting to see if the tragic loss of Dan Carter from the RWC will have any impact on Sonny Wool’s choice this Wednesday, does he think the All Blacks can do it with out him?”

Last week Sonny Wool met his name sake Sonny Bill Williams, where he picked New Zealand to beat Canada in front of 40000 screaming fans. Sonny Bill Williams said “It’s actually quite cool to have a sheep named after me, Yeah it’s cool”

Sonny Wool is the only one of the animal oracles left on a 100% track record for the RWC and will be looking to add to that this week when the All Blacks play Argentina in Auckland on Sunday in the quarter finals.

“The kids are really excited about Sonny Wool coming to visit on Wednesday, he has put up for public vote whether he should predict all 4 quarter final games on his facebook page” http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Sonny-Wool/110652529038631 Dan Boyd Said.

Again Sonny Wool’s means of communication will be via his feed, with corresponding flags attached and whichever feed he decides to eat first will be Sonny’s prediction for the All Blacks Vs Argentina game on Sunday in Auckland

Photo opportunities and interviews will be available:

New Reports: Flood Risk From Rain And Sea Under Climate Change

One report looks at what would happen when rivers are flooded by heavy rain and storms, while the other examines flooding exposure in coastal and harbour areas and how that might change with sea-level rise.

Their findings show that across the country almost 700,000 people and 411,516 buildings worth $135 billion are presently exposed to river flooding in the event of extreme weather events...

There is near certainty that the sea will rise 20-30 cm by 2040. By the end of the century, depending on whether global greenhouse gas emissions are reduced, it could rise by between 0.5 to 1.1 m, which could add an additional 116,000 people exposed to extreme coastal storm flooding. More>>
