Global Warming: Seas Swallow Inhabited Island

That is not a theory of how ice ages begin or end, it is a description of what happens when massive amounts of water is tied up in snow and ice (sea levels drop) and what happens when they melt (sea levels rise). It is basic fluid dynamics....why do you think ice levels are rising and low lying land is being inundated...God's peeing in the ocean? The polar caps are melting that is why.

Back on topic ..... The Independant is a well know Global Warming 'Catastrophist' It over sensationalises every possible climate change story regardless. As already noted, there are many reasons why islands sink beneath the waves - rising sea levels are just one of them. The Independant - like most catastrophists - will make an assumption based on their preconceptions (that everything is due to AGW) and not even bother to consider alternative explanations. After all, "uninhabited island sinks due to tectonic activity" is not quite such a sensational headline

This has no bearing on the extent to which climate change is occurring, nor the reasons for it. But it is a reason why many people are growing increasingly sceptical of all the catastrophist claims bandied about by the media, politicians and others outside of the serious scientific community.

Satellite imagery shows that the sea level in the Sundarbans has risen at an average rate of 3.14 centimetres a year over the past two decades - much higher than the global average of two millimetres a year.

Now, somehow explain to me how water from melting ice caps all congregates around the bay of Bengal

Clearly the underlying cause is somethimng else.

Tree-felling during the past century has more than halved the mangrove cover in the Indian section as successive administrations allowed rampant land reclamation for human settlement.

Since the first settlements in 1770, the population of the Indian Sundarbans has risen 200% to nearly 4.3 million.

The population has put pressure on the ecosystem, which acts as a nursery for the aquatic resources of the Bay of Bengal.

Professor Hazra says mangrove depletion will increase the threat of flooding upstream in Calcutta. "It is an ecological disaster in the making," he says.

So, it is due to human activity ..... But not carbon emissions. Still, easier to blame AGW than accept the harsh truth I suppose

Anyone trying to use intellgence and reasion with most ppl will find that thouse ppl are in a box a box called relgion .And a box called Comfurt.
