I suspect that while they are the ones most affected, they cannot count on fast enough or strong enough action to save themselves. Best plan where to move to.

So you missed the recent posts here from a resident of Tuvalu who said the sea level appears not to be changing, but possibly falling?

Spread the fear while you can, your days of being able to do it are numbered.

How drunk WAS he?

And it may be. Any single spot on the globe may be going up or down due to various processes. aybe because it has been a weak year for cyclonic storms. Maybe because of the strong LA-NINA ( cold water is denser).

It is the GLOBAL AVERAGE sea level that is increasing over long term time.

A typical reply from a typical denier of truth, who can make anything fit the warmist religion.

"GLOBAL AVERAGE sea level" is increasing, "over long term time," everyone knows that, it's been rising on and off since the last glacial.

Who's going to find a way to blame this on GW?

Experts predict quieter Atlantic hurricane season:
AFP - August 5, 2009, 6:00 am

MIAMI (AFP)- Weather experts on Wednesday reduced the number of projected hurricanes in the north Atlantic this season to four, two of them major hurricanes with winds above 178 kilometers (111 miles) per hour.

After one of the calmest starts to the hurricane season in a decade, the experts from Colorado State University said the development of an El Nino effect in the Pacific had caused them to scale back their projections for the Atlantic.

The EL NINO phenomenon, which involves changes in atmospheric pressure in the southern Pacific, occurs every three to six years, disrupting global weather patterns.

In the Atlantic, EL NINO events are associated with decreased levels of hurricane activity, said Philip Klotzbach and William Gray of Colorado State University.

I lived on the Islands of Palau. They have these really handy things for proving that the AGW crisis claims are a crock of *&%^(said by Bob Lutz, General Motors’ vice chairman)

Handy things revealed later - read on.
----------
From AGW crisis peddler article:

"The Cook Islands, Nauru, Niue

and Palau

also joined the call."

to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 45 percent by 2020 and 85 percent by 2050, said Toke Talagi, premier of the micro state of Niue.

"The small island states have agreed we must make a very strong stance with respect to the greenhouse gas emissions," he said.

He said countries in the group were the most vulnerable to global warming but had little leverage in the global debate because they wield little or no diplomatic or economic clout."

TRANSLATION
----------

We, the Islands know you will never cut emissions by 45% so do what we want all along but won't say out loud. SEND MONEY AND LOTS OF IT AND WE WILL PRETEND EVERYTHING IS OK

They are called rock Islands eons of time has eroded the rock bases to where they look like giant mush rooms.

THEY STILL LOOK LIKE GIANT MUSHROOMS!

Obviously if the sea levels were rising the bases would be submerged.

SEND MONEY!

Claim That Sea Level Is
Rising Is a Total Fraud

Dr. Nils-Axel Mörner is the head of the Paleogeophysics and Geodynamics department at Stockholm University in Sweden.

He is past president (1999-2003) of the INQUA Commission on Sea Level Changes and Coastal Evolution,

and leader of the Maldives Sea Level Project.

Dr. Mörner has been studying the sea level and its effects on coastal areas for some 35 years.

Warmies have a problem when it comes to predicting catastrophes in the long term, but an even bigger problem with short term forecasts that don't come to pass, like stronger hurricanes caused by GW that aren't likely to happen because of a 1ºF temperature rise.

I recall the words of a wise man, who once wrote.
