The Green New Deal suffered a bit of a setback yesterday, when none of it’s 100 Democratic sponsors voted for it.
But we were warned a long time ago. In 1989, the British Commonwealth said that only global communism could prevent massive sea level rise by the year 2030.
GOVERNMENTS must yield national sovereignty to multilateral authorities able to enforce laws “across environmentally invisible frontiers”
A Commonwealth Expert Group set up to look at climate change estimated there was a 90 per cent certainty that …. sea levels would rise by between one and four metres, by the year 2030.
Who would house the displaced populations of low lying areas like the Maldives, a chain of 1200 islands barely above sea level? Current attitudes to refugees and immigrants in most countries did not suggest that large population movements were feasible. Acceptance of an enhanced risk of large scale drowning was clearly not an option.
The Canberra Times said the Maldives would be underwater by 2018.
This was a little more optimistic than the UN forecast, which predicted the end of civilization by the year 2000.
A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000.
