Damn, I’m sick to death of morons. From an article on CNN working hard to hype some lame demonstrations.
“I believe climate change is the 21st century’s greatest human rights and security challenge,” said Maldives President Mohammed Nasheed, who is one of the messengers. His country, an archipelago of 1,200 islands, is threatened with disappearing under water if sea levels continue to rise.
“If we cannot save 350,000 Maldivians from rising seas today, we cannot save the millions in New York, London, or Mumbai tomorrow,” he said in a recorded statement released by 350.org. “Climate change is happening, and it is happening faster and with greater severity than previously thought.”
Well if global warming and emergency flooding were true, you have a hundred years to build a barrier around the island or build 150,000 canoes. Warming by humans or nature doesn’t matter either way — the island WILL flood — again. However the question of how to save New Yorkers from global warming is a bit simpler.
