Don Aitkin has just blogged an interesting opinion on sea level rises due to climate changing or global warming caused by humans.
Of all the consequences that a warmer planet might bring, the one that gets the largest media shock/horror buzz is the prospect of rising sea-levels, as (some) ‘scientists’ predict that bigger seas will flood coastal communities, submerge coral islands and drown countries like Bangladesh. Greenland will melt, Antarctica will melt, glaciers will retreat even further. We are doomed, unless … It’s just too good a story to spoil with inconvenient data. In fact, as I said eight years ago, there’s just no evidence of anything like this happening. Not one of the fifty million climate refugees predicted for 2010 by the UN Environment Program in 2005 has been found. Another man who personally claimed in 2013 to be a climate refugee has had his claim dismissed by the courts in New Zealand.
There is also much ado over the Chinese government building islands in the South China Sea.
You would think that if climate changing sea level rise was a clear and present danger, that the Chinese, of all people, might hesitate before building islands in the sea?
Most of the global political machinations are about oil, and because we continue to believe that oil is recycled biomass, and hence somewhat scarce on an ideological basis, then the West’s mucking around in the Middle East and East Asia is all about gaining access to oil.
But what is the fossil fuel oil theory is wrong? This possibility suggests that plate tectonics might also be wrong since the fossil fuelers need plate tectonics to bury their biomass sources.
Amazing is the power of belief over reality.
