Maldives Climate Terror Update

Looks like a beautiful day in the Maldives.

In 1988, authorities said the Maldives would be underwater by 2018, and they would run out of fresh water by 1992.

Experts now say the Maldives will be underwater and run out of fresh water within decades.

Most low-lying atoll islands are likely to become uninhabitable by the middle of the century, according to a new study.

Scientists predict that as sea levels rise, thousands of islands will be afflicted by frequent flooding, lack of freshwater and damage to infrastructure.

The difference between now and 200 years ago, is that scientists 200 years ago actually knew something about science. They were aware in 1837 that coral reefs are dynamic and come and go on their own.


Hobart Town Courier   Friday 17 February 1837, page 4

The natives observe the atolls to be wasting away; in some the cocoanut trees are standing in the water ; in another the black soil of the island is discernible at low water thirty feet from the beach ; the south-east side of an island in Phaidee Pholo Atoll is entirely gone, but is marked by a banyan tree in the water. They say that some islands have disappeared entirely.

Some of the outer edges of the islands have fallen into the sea, which is fathomless in those parts. It is, however, acknowledged that reefs, have arisen from the water and gradually formed islands ; and the inhabitants of Male remember the outer edge of a circular reef in their harbour to have had two fathoms in the shoalest part, which is now dry at low water.’

    As hard as I have been working, I could really use the kind of ‘terror’ the residents in, and visitors to, the Maldives are experiencing.

      Maldives would sadden you. The waters are rising. See for yourself how little beach is left in the picture below.

      • Terry Shipman says:

        Yes, and this catastrophe took MERE MINUTES to unfold! The young women were moving so slowly they couldn’t even run from the rising waters. Thank you for that heart-rending You Tube video. Oh, the humanity!

        A hundred years ago this chick had been lying on top of the highest mountain of the maledives.
        She hasn”t moved till then and is now completely surrounded by water.

        Hansen was spot on with his predictions.

        “See for yourself how little beach is left in the picture below.”

        Yes, but what’s ON the beach still brings hope and joy.

      You see nothing but saltwater …

    • Colorado Wellington says:

      Just water, covering it all …

        That poor malnourished woman, who could only afford the most basic clothing necessities, never stood a chance. In a matter of moments the water rose, catching her totally unprepared as she writhed in agony on the disappearing sands. I can only imagine the horror she experienced as her head quickly went under.

      • GW Smith says:

        These photos are simply frightening! Oh the humanity!

      • Disillusioned says:

        Thank you, CW, for providing documentable proof of the tragedy that is taking place in the Maldives. It makes me want to quit working, rush down and help those poor victims. The writhing pain of those two victims splayed out on the sand, is palpable. Yes, I was saddened. Very sad indeed.

        I wondered, where are their husbands to help them? Then it occurred to me that they probably lost their lives in battle, fighting on the front lines in the War against Global Climate Change.

        Some of those women are clearly in distress and need rescuing. On my way…

  2. arn says:

    Here is another “highlight” of failed predictions(the first and biggest victims of commie change) and what happen to people who refuse to believe in them.

  3. Terry Shipman says:

    No, no, you are mistake. The Maldives are under water. Keep staring at my swinging pocket watch and repeat after me: the Maldives are under water. The Maldives are under water…

  4. John says:

    Here is another picture form Nosy Be near Mauritius. As you can see the sea has been rising that’s why it was built on stilts….ha ha

  5. Great follow up on Climate Crisis BS!!
    I’ll be tweeting this !!

    .. your Pal AL .. er Ugh I mean Phil.

  6. Abolition Man says:

    These poor women are obviously victims of toxic masculinity in addition to the horrors of climate change! I believe we must insist that they all receive just recompense for their suffering. At present they are probably only earning two or three thousand dollars U.S. a day, plus expenses. That may be why they have so little to wear!
    Maybe someone could start a GoFundMe account for them; perhaps an appearance in front of the U.N. General Assembly would be beneficial! The video was so horrific that I could not stop watching it over and over and over and over…

    • Logic n reason says:

      I have just a search of the Maldives regarding investment. I went to their government website at one of their embassies. The only reference to a catastrophic sea level rise was the the appalling Tsunami on the 26th December 2004 which of course caused devastation on a massive scale in many parts of Asia. the embassy actively encourages investment in the Maldives and there is no reference to the islands disappearing! In 2017 the Saudi government announced a 10 billion dollar investment in the islands and there is huge investment by property developers to increase tourism and fisheries. If the inhabited islands were in peril from sea level rise there isn’t an actuary in the world who would allow these investments to go ahead.

        Dr. Michael Mann and his fellow climate scientists demand that you stop interrupting their emotional outbursts with appeals to facts and reason.
