Another Icon Of Global Warming Drowns

We have been told for decades that Tuvalu is drowning due to CO2 emissions, and that anyone who doesn’t go along with the global warming scam is a hateful racist.

The BBC had a documentary detailing the doomed state of affairs in Tuvalu.

The prime minister of Tuvalu told the UN that CO2 emissions were “terrorism.”

Prime Minister Saufatu Sapo’aga told the United Nations last year that the global-warming threat is no different from “a slow and insidious form of terrorism against us.” Independent scientists also offer a grim forecast.

Throughout all this mindless hysteria from fake scientists, fake journalists and fake politicians, Tuvalu has actually been growing.

‘Sinking’ Pacific nation is getting bigger: study

The key to understanding this can be found in the 2004 Smithsonian article. The Tuvalu story (like everything else with global warming) has always been about left wing politics and money, not science.

But not all scientists agree that Tuvalu’s future is underwater. Some critics have branded island leaders as opportunists angling for foreign handouts and special recognition for would-be “environmental refugees” who, they say, are exploiting the crisis to gain entry to New Zealand and Australia. Others have even said that people and organizations sympathetic to Tuvalu are “eco-imperialists” intent on imposing their alarmist environmental views on the rest of the world.

And of course the same fake story in the Maldives, which were supposed to be underwater by 2018.

    Has Barack O. bought a property over there ? With a mortgage ?
    Fat chance that it will be in no time under water .

    It has always been completely obvious to me, having studied physical geography, that these islands rise and fall with the sea level.
    Over tens of thousands and hundreds of thousands of years, sea level rises and falls by many hundreds of feet.
    And yet, all of these coral atolls and other sorts of tropical islands are just a small amount, several feet in many cases, above the current sea level.
    Now, this is either an amazing coincidence, or something else is going on.
    Ad that something else has been well known for a long time. It was in the textbooks that were in use when I was in college in the 1980s, and was not some new discovery.
    The level of these islands above the sea is a balance between the growth of coral and erosion. When sea level falls by hundreds of feet over hundreds and thousands of years, these islands are not sticking way up in the air. Erosion batters them down and they fall with the sea. As the icecaps melt, which happens very rapidly, the growth of coral is fast enough to add enough material to keep the island above sea level.
    Islands with active volcanoes undergo different processes as the ocean rises and falls, but in every case, even with the climate changing rapidly, and sea level plunging down or surging up, there keeps being beaches with reefs offshore a few feet to a few tens of feet deep.
    Like with every other aspect of the science they proclaim themselves to be experts in and have completely settled, these nitwits seem to have not even a modestly informative undergraduate education in their respective fields.

      Excellent post.

      Interesting. So you are saying islands are no more static than continents are. Sounds pretty obvious when you think about it. There is a typically geological reason an island exists in the first place. Corals, and other life forms no doubt, build upon what is there. And of course currents and tides tend to remove material here and deposit material there. I don’t know this, but I assume corals could act like grasses do above water to bind dunes in place and make them relatively permanent.

      Even the floors of the oceans are not static. And over the top of them is an unfathomable (pun intended) volume of water pressing down with tremendous pressure. Would deeper oceans result in more land uplift in some instances and more land sink in others? Beats me. I am literally just wondering, since we know for every action there is an equal reaction.

        Yep, every 32 feet of water is 1 atmosphere pushing down.
        Even 100 ft deep water is pushing down with 6,000 lbs/sq. ft. (about 300,000 N/m2)!!

        • menicholas says:

          The pressure at depth should work out to the weight of the water above that point, so the pressure at 32 feet, measured in pounds per square inch, let’s say, is the weight of a square column of water 32 feet high and one inch wide. Water is very close to eight gallons per cubic foot, and eight pounds per gallon.
          So that is 32 one foot columns, and you need 144 of them to make one cubic foot. So 32/144 x 64 = psi at 32 feet.
          About a little over 14.2 psi. Above whatever the barometric pressure is at the surface (which is itself the weight of a column of air extending up to the edge of outer space)
          One psi is about the weight of 2.04 inches of mercury
          Which is just about right, iffen I recall the numberz on my old barometer crectly.

        The atoll islands in the Pacific ocean are small archipelagos that sit on the tops of long dead volcanoes.
        Generally speaking these volcanoes rest on old and cold and thus stable ocean floor crust. They are generally cone shaped structures jutting sharply up from the abyssal plain, and many of them reach the surface. It is estimated that in total area, they would form a continent sized landmass.
        There is no uplift or subsidence to speak of. Not on the time scales that would be important for human interests anyway.

        These old volcanoes, called seamounts, mostly long ago became inactive, and the igneous rock of which they are comprised was worn down over various periods of geologic time. Some rise nearly to the surface, some crest way below.
        Many of them are well over 3000 and even 4000 meters tall.

        There are vast numbers of seamounts rising from the seabed, all over the world.
        Where they occur in tropical or subtropical waters, in which reef forming corals can thrive, atolls form on the tops of the seamounts that make it to the surface but are then worn down to sea level.

      • menicholas says:

        Oh, wait a second…I think I was not being clear when I described the islands rising and falling. It is only the amount sticking out of the water that changes…they whole miles deep seamount just sits there.
        Here is a satellite picture of one:

    How many other government policies are based on peer reviewed scientific papers, that are later proved to have “no scientific validity”?

    • menicholas says:

      If the only verification of the ideas contained in the paper is peer review, I think it be a misuse of the language to call it scientific.
      Running it by a few other like minded folks was not any part of the scientific method wot I learnt, back in the olden days.

      • scott allen says:

        The problem with most modern scientific papers is that the peers, reviewing the scientific papers, think like the authors, which leads to group think. The reviewer don’t actually replicate the science, their job is to check that the science is “plausible” not factual. Global warming is a prime example.

    “Icons of Global Warming”, that’s good. It is Zombie Science, for sure.
