This story contains one of the great lines ever showing what a crock the whole Climate Scam really is.
WELLINGTON: The President of the low-lying Pacific atoll nation of Kiribati says his country may already be doomed because of climate change.Doomed! Doomed! We're all doomed, I say! Lost In Space's Dr Smith would have loved global warming.
Anote Tong says communities have already been resettled and crops destroyed by seawater in some parts of the country, made up of 33 coral atolls straddling the equator.I'm sure that Anote Tong is well aware that Kiribati is a coral atoll located in an active seismic region. The water isn't rising, the island is collapsing as are many similar islands in the pacific in that region. Check out the Wikipedia entry on what an atoll is; it has an animation that shows what's happening to Kiribati and other places like it.
Although scientists are still debating the extent of rising sea levels and their cause, Mr Tong told a news conference marking World Environment Day that changes were obvious in his country of 92,000 people.I suppose they would be obvious. The place is sinking.
“I am not a scientist but what I know is that things are happening we did not experience in the past,” the President said.That's right. It's sinking.
“We may be beyond redemption, we may be at the point of no return where the emissions in the atmosphere will carry on to contribute to climate change to produce a sea-level change that in time our small low-lying islands will be submerged.The Climate Faithful know that Kiribati is a sinking atoll but they're still happy to use it and Tuvalu and other places as 'proof' of the already apparent effects of climate change aka living in an advanced society.
“Villages that have been there over the decades, maybe a century, and now they have to be relocated.
“Where they have been living over the past few decades is no longer there, it is being eroded.”
At international meetings others had argued that measures to combat climate change would hurt their countries' economic development.Human survival! The place is sinking! Break out the life jackets! Prepare the life boats! Get the local band to crank out Nearer My God To Thee! Women and children first!
“In frustration, I said, 'No, it's not an issue of economic growth, it's an issue of human survival'.”
Here it comes. One of the great lines ever delivered by a Climate Rent Seeker.
One for the ages.
One that will take some topping.
Under the worst-case scenario, Kiribati would be submerged by the end of this century and its people would have to be resettled in other countries, Mr Tong said.Excuse me?
"...worst-case scenario...end of this century...?"
That is hilarious.
Quick, write that man a cheque to save his great-great-grandchildren from sinking without trace.
Do these people have no shame?
Oh, wait, they are the Climate Faithful after all. Truth is not an important value for them.
