Surprise: Island That’s Poster Child For ‘Climate Change’ Doom Actually Grew In Size

It’s always a shame when facts rear up and bit the Cult of Climastrology in the posterior. Don’t expect this news to change their talking points, though

(Frontpage) Tuvalu, like the polar bears, is the poster child for the dire threat of the Flying Global Warming Monster

Has the era of the ‘climate change refugee’ begun? – Washington Post

Will Tuvalu Disappear Beneath the Sea?  – Smithsonian

Here’s the NOAA write up for brainwashing your kids. One of many Obama era climate hoaxes that needs to be cleaned up by the administration. Because Tuvalu still keeps growing.

The Pacific nation of Tuvalu—long seen as a prime candidate to disappear as climate change forces up sea levels—is actually growing in size, new research shows.

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.

Huh. Strange that that can happen. Anthony Watts writes

From the “we told you so,  again, and again” department. We’ve had several articles about the island of Tuvalu and the ridiculous claims of sea level rise causing it to disappear, while at the same time they are building new hotels and airports to attract tourists. Willis has also had several articles on how Pacific atolls grow, and float, rather than sink as sea level advances.

And from the actual measurements, we see (you can start at the beginning data page here)

Not really seeing much in sea rise, eh? Jo Nova writes “The Green Blob is going to have to get rid of satellites. Real data is so inconvenient. “

    Science: Because figuring things out is always better than making shit up!

    Science will win out over your myths and superstitions. But the battle will not be easy
