‘Sinking’ Pacific Island Touted as Prime Climate Change Victim is Actually Rising Out of the Sea: Study

More climate alarm propaganda goes up in smoke.

From Breitbart:


A University of Auckland study examined changes in the geography of Tuvalu’s nine atolls and 101 reef islands between 1971 and 2014, using aerial photographs and satellite imagery.

It found eight of the atolls and almost three-quarters of the islands grew during the study period, lifting Tuvalu’s total land area by 2.9 percent, even though sea levels in the country rose at twice the global average.

Co-author Paul Kench said the research, published Friday in the journal Nature Communications, challenged the assumption that low-lying island nations would be swamped as the sea rose.

“We tend to think of Pacific atolls as static landforms that will simply be inundated as sea levels rise, but there is growing evidence these islands are geologically dynamic and are constantly changing,” he said.

“The study findings may seem counter-intuitive, given that (the) sea level has been rising in the region…

    Geology has more lessons for us. But do we learn from the evidence?

    These results are basically the same as Darwin deduced way back in 1842, in his monograph, Coral Reefs”.
    Just goes to show how AGW propaganda has buried the truth.

    Where are the ’50 million climate refugees’? 2010 date long gone.

    Delingpole: ‘Sinking’ Pacific Island Actually Getting Bigger Shock

    To climate skeptics, the fact that Tuvalu is not drowning will come as no surprise whatsoever.

    Their favorite sea levels expert – Nils-Axel Mörner – has written numerous papers on the subject.

    In 2012, he wrote:

    In Tuvalu, the President continues to claim that they are in the process of being flooded. Yet, the tide-gauge data provide clear indication of a stability over the last 30 years.


    Of course the prospect of big handouts from hand-wringing climate-obsessed wealthier countries must be quite tempting 😉
