As Republicans would say, “what climate change? It is all a hoax!” They claim that 97 percent of the world’s scientists got together one day and decided to play a trick on all of us. They were going to tell the world that the temperature of the planet is warming and that all hell will break loose.
Once they put out their fairy tale, they all sat back and had a good laugh. No one would really believe this stupidity anyway. Since then, Republicans have been telling us of this hoax. They said that everything is just fine and that these lying “liberal” scientists are just trying to ruin our economy.
Well, guess what? The Republicans have something to point to to prove their point. They now have the evidence that they have been looking to get to prove that everyone fell for this miserable April Fool’s Day joke by these “liberal” scientists. The proof of this horrendous hoax we have all swallowed is in the Solomon Islands.
At least five islands there have plunged completely below the ocean’s surface over the past several decades. Numerous others in the South Pacific island nation appear to be headed for a similar fate, a new study has found. This “global sea-level rise hotspot“ has seen ocean levels rise 7-10 mm per year — three times the global average, according to the study.
Simon Albert of the University of Queensland led a team that analyzed aerial and satellite imagery of 33 islands dating back to 1947 for their study, published in the journal Environmental Research Letters. They found that five — Kale, Rapita, Rehana, Kakatina and Zollies — along the northern coast of Isabel island have vanished, most of them as early as 2002. Six others, including the inhabited island of Nuatambu, are “experiencing severe shoreline recession.”
The authors wrote in an article published in The Conversation:
These islands lost to the sea range in size from [2.5 to 12 acres]. They supported dense tropical vegetation that was at least 300 years old. Nuatambu Island, home to 25 families, has lost more than half of its habitable area, with 11 houses washed into the sea since 2011.
Forcing residents of small villages from their homes is one thing. The study notes that Taro, the capital of Choiseul Province, is “set to become the first provincial capital globally to relocate residents and services due to the threat of sea-level rise.”
In addition, sea level rises are also affecting the Marshall Islands. But, you don’t have to worry about that. It is probably happening because some UFO is making these islands disappear as another joke on us. That must be the real explanation for these “sinking” of islands.
Still, in Alaska, home to that great statesman Sarah Pain and one of the biggest science deniers, climate change already affects more than 180 villages, with the Yupik community of Newtok among the hardest hit. And in Louisiana, home to the failed Republican Candidate and former Governor Bobby Jindal, another science denier, a Native American tribe was forced to flee its home on the Isle de Jean Charles, becoming among the first communities of climate refugees in the U.S. And, islands are shrinking in the Chesapeake Bay.
Finally, fifteen of the hottest years on record occurred in the last 16 years, including 2015 topping the charts from 2014 which beat out 2013 which beat out 2102, etc. But, remember that has nothing to do with climate change. And, of course all of the carbon that man is putting into the atmosphere has nothing to do with the temperatures getting warmer either.
So, you see. Here is the proof. Climate change is definitely a hoax. You have nothing to worry about. The climate is not changing. Temperatures are not getting warmer. Arctic ice is not melting at record levels causing sea levels to rise significantly. And no one is being affected by any of this bullshit. It is all a hoax. Those wacky scientist really pulled one over on us, huh.
But, then again, if you own beachfront property along the coasts, you might want to consider dumping it now before real estate prices plunge. But, remember, those prices won’t plunge because sea levels are rising and flooding out your property. No, they will plummet because of “liberal” policies that hurt property values. Just look at this “absolute” proof the Republicans have been looking to show you to prove it is all a hoax. Nothing to worry about!
