World | Another damnation report

3 06 2010

Even if the sun shrivelled up to a hundredth of its size I doubt the vested interests would drop their global pursuit of a global solution to the global problem of global warming.

Thinking about the BBC pension pot, Auntie Beeb brings us the news that the ‘Low-lying Pacific islands ‘growing not sinking’ but even after Associate Professor Paul Kench of Auckland University…

… says the islands are not in immediate danger of extinction.

“That rather gloomy prognosis for these nations is incorrect,” he said.

“We have now got the evidence to suggest that the physical foundation of these countries will still be there in 100 years, so they perhaps do not need to flee their country.”

Auntie Beeb concludes with this…

But although these islands might not be submerged under the waves in the short-term, it does not mean they will be inhabitable in the long-term, and the scientists believe further rises in sea levels pose a significant danger to the livelihoods of people living in Tuvalu, Kiribati and the Federated States of Micronesia.

One scientist in Kiribati said that people should not be lulled into thinking that inundation and coastal erosion were not a major threat.

Nothing can get in the way of those pension pots.  Even if the Beeb have to resort to unnamed scientists, they will continue to promote the goose that lays the golden eggs.
