According to a British study, Tasmania ranks as one of the top five places in the world where one can survive after a global collapse of society.
- A UK study rated Tasmania one of the best places to survive a collapse in society
- Scientists say Tasmania's climate, agricultural resources and electricity supply make it an ideal refuge should "things go pear-shaped"
- However, they say the state could not cope with an influx of people
The scientists noted that Tasmania's climate, agricultural resources and electricity supply make it an ideal haven if things don't go so well for humanity.
Tasmania has been listed along with New Zealand, Iceland, the United Kingdom and Ireland as the most likely shelters of the future.
The study, published in the scientific journal Sustainability, found that Tasmania could be recognised as Australia's refuge, as conditions on the mainland may become more hostile to supporting large human populations in the future.
