What is really sad, is that we only had until the year 2000 to prevent this from happening.

      Good song. It’s Bobby McFerrin. Not Bob Marley. We saw him in concert back in the ’90s. A Talented and unusual a cappella singer – he made all those sounds with his voice, his tongue and lips popping, and his hands and fingers tapping on his chest.

      Me too. Just watched the sun go down at the pool with a cocktail in hand. I can confirm that there is much construction going on at the airport in Male which makes you wonder why bother if it’s gone!

    2018 was really a hell of a year.
    So many apocalyptic things happened and even the of the mill hurricanes were so destructive that the tough weather guys on tv had almost been blown away but survived thanks to their high tech windbreaking clothes
    while ignorant climate deniers in the background walked around in shorts and did some small talk.

    Newsflash!
    Newport Beach, Sydney. Sixty years of rising sea levels threaten surfing lifestyle.
    Environmental surfers say they will abandon petrochemical surfboards, legropes, wetsuits and cars. No more,

    that empty ocean road
    getting to the surf on time.” (Neil Young)

    The end of the Canberra Times article ends:
    “. . if drinking water supplies dry up . . . ”

    Clearly that did not happen.
    The “rest of this story” might be interesting,
    or maybe not.

      Seems to I remember that the last time things got really wet in the Australian interior some scientist said that was the reason SLR was not reaching projections. Claimed that Australia was like a bowel holding all the water

        I hate it when my bowel holds water…

        Just kidding, Rah, typos always sneeek in. :)

        • Rah says:

          Most aren’t typos. Thus damn thing keeps changing what I type with it’s own interpretation of what I am trying to say. Even in this message it inserted the word “place” after “it’s”.

            I sent an email this morning in which I mentioned the composer Albinoni. My spellcheck insisted I must mean either albinism or binomial! :)

            ….. but didn’t fix “it’s”…… should be its

    Why Vanuatu was not mentioned ? After ordering billions in aid the unexpected must have happened ! The islands must have been saved by a miracle . Too bad it happened before the big IPCC-cashing in has started .

    “This was the year the Maldives drowned, Lower Manhattan drowned, and the Arctic became ice-free.”

    If only we’d have listened. Instead we just pointed and laughed.

    Actually, I’m still pointing and laughing! I mean, they were just kidding weren’t they?

    Meanwhile the leftists think scientists are being too nice with low certainty on how climate change lower economic growth. Proof with record crop yields.
