Who are these islanders who are getting put out by rising sea levels?? If you are talking about the guys mentioned in "An Inconvenient 'nine
' Truth", then I'm sorry to say that it was an absolute lie. Gore said that thousands of pacific islanders were forced to 'flee'
to NZ, due to rising sea levels. I live here and I can assure you the majority of islanders are here for family and/or work, and rising sea levels
had absolutely nothing to do with it.
Many pacific islands have recorded rises and
drops in sea level, mostly due to changes in the geogrophy, the islands themselves are sinking
and rising. Theres a lot of ecogical disasters that are far, far, far more important than island sea levels.
The polar bears are doing just fine for now. Polar bears ARE NOT being considerably affected right now
. That was another of Gore's
fabrications. Four bears drowned in a storm is twisted by Gore, saying that polar bears are 'drowning in significant numbers'. Now is 4 polar bears
considered 'significant' compared to polar bear populations? Considering that most studies say that populations are unchanged
What's wrong with the penguins? Last I saw they were doing just fine.
Don't be fooled by members of the 'green' movement, promoting alarmism for personal gain. Why do you think their major 'remedial' action is cap
and trade on co2?! The element that plants(therefore, us too!) rely on to survive! What about all the other problems which are readily accepted,
where action could see benifits right now?
The sad fact is, a few people are using global warming (now climate change) to further their agenda, make profit and gain more control.
I'm not saying that we can go on polluting like we are, but just be aware that there is a lot of hype (and even more money) in 'global warming'.
