Oceans Rise 6 Feet!

Thats right, due to anthropogenic global warming the seas have risen 6 feet! How do we know this? Because the New Moore island (AKA South Talpatti Island) that India and Bangladesh have been feuding over has sunk into the sea!

New Moore Island in the Sunderbans has been completely submerged, said oceanographer Sugata Hazra, a professor at Jadavpur University in Calcutta. Its disappearance has been confirmed by satellite imagery and sea patrols, he said.

“What these two countries could not achieve from years of talking, has been resolved by global warming,” said Hazra

Looking up further information on this island we find that the island first appeared after a 1970 cyclone and that its highest highest point was about 6 feet. Well, since this island is now underwater we have conclusive proof that AGW has caused the seas to rise at least 6 feet. If you don’t believe me, just go back up and read the above quote by esteemed scientist Sugata Hazra.

Maybe the IPCC had foreseen this catastrophic rise in sea levels and that is why they estimated that 55% of the Netherlands is under sea level rather than the 26% the Dutch government reports. Poor Dutch people. At least they have those wooden clogs. Hopefully they will be able to hold onto them and stay afloat long enough to be rescued.

    hyperbole aside, you’d think these ding dongs would understand something as simple as erosion.
