Duvat (2018) recently pointed out that over the past decades, the atoll islands of the Pacific (and Indian) Ocean exhibited no sign of drowning because of sea-level rise. The data, that covers 30 atolls including 709 islands, reveal that no atoll lost land area, 88.6% of islands were either stable or increased in area, and only 11.4% of islands contracted. In this paper Albert Parker and Clifford Ollier explain more in detail about the Pacific Islands.

Former Canadian Provincial Minister James Matkin, in this 148-page paper, begins by describing claims of a 97% "consensus" in favour of climate alarmism as "Bunk. There is no such consensus. In fact there was a serious divide between the IPCC scientists and the UN on the science of human caused climate change. ...This 97% meme gets far too much attention when the real issue is why have leaders like Al Gore lied about the support of the 2000 scientists employed in the IPCC Working Group failure to ‘detect’ evidence of human caused warming."

THE HOAX OF OCEAN 'ACIDIFICATION'

August 26, 2019, 4:03 pm

Emeritus Professor Clifford Ollier writes at QUAESTIONES GEOGRAPHICAE: "The oceans are not acid, never have been in geological history, and cannot become acid in the future. Changes in atmospheric CO2 cannot produce an acid ocean. Marine life depends on CO2, and some plants and animals fix it as limestone. Over geological time enormous amounts of CO2 have been sequestered by living things, and today there is far more CO2 in limestones than in the atmosphere or ocean. Carbon dioxide in seawater does not dissolve coral reefs, but is essential to their survival."

"We know there is simply no basis for climate alarm. All 'scientific' predictions have failed, life has survived happily with much higher CO2 in the past, the medieval warming period a thousand years ago was much warmer than today, the small temperature variations of the 20th century are easily explained by natural causes, and the IPCC reports confirm that there is no increase in extreme weather events and no economic harm from CO2. And yet the hysteria is increasing by the day." Sanjeev Sahblok, leader of the Swarna Bharat Party writes in The Times of India. (Note: slight error about the middle when he incorrectly names Maurice Strong as "Michael")

Bjorn Lomborg writes for "The Australian": "The risk is that outsized fear will take us down the wrong path in tackling global warming. Concerned activists want the world to abandon fossil fuels as quickly as possible. But it will mean slowing the growth that has lifted billions out of poverty and transformed the planet. That has a real cost."
