“Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former.”
On September 26, 1988 climate experts said all 1,196 Maldives Islands would drown in 30 years. That is only four weeks away.
So far, they are batting 0.000 with their forecast. This is what the Maldives looks like this morning.
In 1997, the President of the Maldives pleaded for help. He said Island countries were about to disappear under the seas.
Ten years ago, The Guardian said the Maldives were packing up and moving out.
Now the Guardian says the Maldives are the moral leader on climate change, and are adapting by taking in tens of billions of dollars of big oil money to expand their resorts and bring in millions more tourists.
It takes moral courage to survive expanding islands.
In climate science, islands expand as the disappear under the sea.
The Guardian says if you don’t believe the Maldives will be gone in four weeks, you are evil and must be silenced.
It is unfortunate the Guardian didn’t take their stance on silencing skeptics 180 years ago, when CO2 was 280 PPM and Maldives Islands actually were disappearing.
