An inhabited island has been wiped off the face of the Earth due to global warming, Britain’s The Independent site reported on Sunday.
The remote Lohachara Island was part of the Sundarbans Island Chain near the Bay of Bengal in India. Rising sea levels have swallowed the island whole, according to the report. It was once home to 10,000 people.
Lohachara’s disappearance wasn’t easy to discover. Satellites monitored it until it finally disappeared.

This is very alarming. 10,000 some people wiped off the face of the Earth by global warming. Mother Nature itself is angry, when will the resources all prioritize itself for safer technologys to reduce and perhaps stop environmental issues? When will we realize that we can be destroyed almost instantly. Thanks for informing us

Global warming is real - but please, blame the sun and the volcanos (or the erosion of limestone, BTW), not my car (or your plastic XBox), unless they were present in the past.
The team first noticed that the islands were vanishing while working on a Government of India funded project in 2001. The government census was still showing a population of 5,000 in Ghorama, one of the fast submerging islands. “But we could not find the island in the satellite images.
The seas are rising across the Sundarbans, the 100-island conglomerate in the Ganges estuarine delta in the Bay of Bengal.
“There’s nothing any more where our island once was. It’s just a huge stretch of sea where vessels ply,”

Enviromental stewardship is beyond their reasoning, so don't expect the addict to change, since commercialized sheeple are programmed to follow tails, remain in a stupor and embrace escapisms.
How do we know that recent CO2 increases are due to human activities?
Over the last 150 years, carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations have risen from 280 to nearly 380 parts per million (ppm). The fact that this is due virtually entirely to human activities is so well established that one rarely sees it questioned. Yet it is quite reasonable to ask how we know this.
CO2 produced from burning fossil fuels or burning forests has quite a different isotopic composition from CO2 in the atmosphere.

Source: "Gore's circumstantial arguements are so weak that they are pathetic.......
Carter is one of hundreds of highly qualified non-governmental, non-industry, non-lobby group climate experts who contest the hypothesis that human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are causing significant global climate change. “Climate experts” is the operative term here. Why? Because what Gore’s “majority of scientists” think is immaterial when only a very small fraction of them actually work in the climate field.

Activists and zealots constantly shrilling over atmospheric carbon dioxide are misdirecting attention and effort from real and potentially addressable local, regional and planetary problems.

It seems like the zealots and extremists are now onboard. Welcome!
Have fun with this, if you read and understand them. I now sign off from this thread, because extremists rarely change their minds - Boom! Understand the comparison?.
Mama Nature does what she does, but we don't have to neccessarily help her along.

Thank you for your kind attention to my first post here.
