The world's first climate refugees

The world's first climate refugees

(4:22) The low lying island nations of Oceania are quickly becoming uninhabitable due to sea level rise, creating climate change refugees who will never be able to return to where they used to call home.

Before global warming/climate change became the new religion, it was reported in geological & scientific journals that these Pacific islands were sinking as the volcanic hot spots which had had created the islands (sea mount volcanos) were moving and the lslands were settling as the earths crust returns to its normal levels. No doubt the warmists will claim that the atmospheric carbon dioxide is affecting magma circulation and plate tectonics to cause this.

Meh!

In the Swiss alps, you'll find shells up in the mountains, at over 2,000 meters altitude. So if sea level rises 10 meters per year, it takes twenty centuries to return to levels previously seen.

Shells high up the Swiss Alps are due to mountains rising, not sea level rise.

In many parts of the world, oil (=remains of tropical forests) are found 3,000 meters below the desert. Is that a consequence of rising desert sand?

The land in some areas rise, in others it subsides.

Sand has nothing to do with it.

North America , for instance, is now rising, which means some of the lower united states is subsiding. A 5 mile thick sheet of ice used to cover north america 15,000 years ago which pushed the north american plate down and raised part of it up. Now the ice is gone the opposite is happening.

The area youre speaking of was once a tropical forest but now is desert.

Idiot

Same is happening in Britain. Scotland is rebounding (floating upwards) since the weight of the ice sheets has gone and southern England is sinking a the result of the see-saw action. The warmistas choose to ignore this in their sea level level rise story just as religious fundamentalists refuse to accept Darwinism, the fossil record and plate tectonics.

Is that last "Idiot" meant as a signature?

Anyway, if long ago the bottom of the sea has risen by a few kilometers (as in Switzerland), and former tropical forests are now covered by a few kilometers of sand, what's the fuss about the sea level rising by maybe one kilometer?
