It is based on a letter by Nils -Axel Morners observation and his reprimand to the President of the Maldives on scaring his people on the rising sea levels
What rising sea levels lov? You are starting to sound like roscoe. You don't read the material, or you don't want to understand what it is saying and you then, somewhat disingenuously, repeat the assertion without providing any scientific evidence whatsoever. Surely one Forumite using that strategy is enough?
I ask you: give us your scientific evidence that supports your assertion that the sea level around the Maldives is rising. If you don't have any then please stop your disingenuous spreading of untruths.
Until you do that this discussion is not worth the candle.
You ask me whether I deny the article says:
[b]The Maldivian President, Mohamed Nasheed, said his government was considering Australia as a possible new home if the tiny archipelago disappears beneath rising seas.
''It is increasingly becoming difficult to sustain the islands, in the natural manner that these islands have been,'' he told the Herald in an interview in Male, the Maldives capital.
The highest point in the entire country is 2.4 metres above sea level, and already, 14 islands have had to be abandoned because of massive erosion by the sea.
To Escape Rising Seas, Maldives President May Move His Entire Island Nation to Australia
You're playing games. Let me confirm for you that's what your article says.
However, it is not evidence of sea level rise in the Maldives. What it is evidence of is lazy journalism by the SMH which has just cut and pasted Nasheed's press release or, alternatively, just parroted his propaganda for the benefit of its shrinking, left-wing, inner urban, Latte sipping, political correct, unthinking supporters of the climate change fraud.
I'm surprised that somebody like you with the critical thinking capacities that you exhibit more generally in other posts and threads have been taken in by it.
And finally, you seek to insult me. I'm not into trading insults but when you say things like.........
As for Roscoe
I believe you and him are in agreement on this issue
I'll let Roscoe answer for himself on the issue
......I question the sincerity of your assurances that you are......
just trying to find out the TRUTH Wombat
I am not in agreement with roscoe on this issue. You need to read what he has said, and omitted to say, much more carefully than you appear to, if that is your opinion.
See if you can find where he says this:
I accept the IPCC’s assessment that the Global Average Temperature Anomaly (GATA) has increased 0.74C° + or - 0.18C° over the period 1905 to 2005.
Quite possibly you don't understand what that means. Well, if you are going to persist with this thread try to understand that bit of the issue, at least.
And while you're into a bit of in depth study, lovuian, see if you can recall who said this and what it means for the Maldives:"No other work of mine was begun in so deductive a spirit as this; for the whole theory was thought out on the west coast of S. America before I had seen a true coral reef. I had therefore only to verify and extend my views by a careful examination of living reefs. But it should be observed that I had during the two previous years been incessantly attending to the effects on the shores of S. America of the intermittent elevation of the land, together with the denudation and deposition of sediment. This necessarily led me to reflect much on the effects of subsidence, and it was easy to replace in imagination the continued deposition of sediment by the upward growth of coral. To do this was to form my theory of the formation of barrier-reefs and atolls.”
