Global Warming Solves Border Dispute by Submerging Contested Territory

The AP reports: “For nearly 30 years, India and Bangladesh have argued over control of a tiny rock island in the Bay of Bengal. Now rising sea levels have resolved the dispute for them: the island has gone.”

The maritime borders between the two countries remain in dispute—as they presumably will continue to be, as rising sea levels make Bangladesh an increasingly maritime country, as scientists anticipate. Really, it takes an epoch-defining ecological crisis to see that the problems of two little countries don’t amount to a hill of rocks in this ever-more-watery world. Why get so upset about healthcare when soon enough we’ll all be breathing through gills and distilling drinking water from our own urine?

  • Global warming raised the sea level seven feet between India and Bangladesh, but not on the coast of either India or Bangladesh. Or the Bahamas. Or Hawaii. Or New Orleans.
    Today’s word, children, is “sandbar”. Look it up. For extra credit, look up tomorrow’s word, “gullable.”

  • Weird, when I look up “gullable,” Google asks me if I meant “gullible,” and I totally do not know how to answer them.

  • 30 years ago, an earthquake caused this 2 meter high sandbar to rise from the sea. It has since washed away. Alarmists want you to believe that manmade global warming caused sea levels to rise 6 feet and inundate the “island”. Of course, sea levels haven’t risen perceptibly in 30 years, let alone 6 feet, and certainly not in just this one spot in the sea. Somehow, the author expects readers to buy into the story.

    Given the blatent lie this put forth by this article, it’s important for everyone who reads this to understand that everything else the Alarmists say is either a lie, a half truth, or an embellished ambiguity. This article was written with such ineptness, even Al Gore has to be cringing (or maybe laughing). Even Al Gore knows this sloppy story telling undermines AGW credibility.

    The truth is, most Alarmist articles ARE lies… but are written with more plausibility and panache.

  • Well, while we’re lying then:
