    20 minutes ago, i didn't even know the small island nation of Kiribati even existed.

    whats interesting about them is, it seems they have a plan for GW, and rising sea levels>>>>


    Entire Pacific Nation Readies Plan To Abandon Low-Lying Island And Move To Fiji Because Of Global Warming | ThinkProgress


    now i know the whole debate will forever and a day be mired in weather GW is anthropogenic or not

    but that aside, what's the plan?

    what do we do when the climatic events we see unfolding end up at our doors , be it physically in the form of seawater, acidification, CO, etc, or the effects being felt due to the planets climate evolution in the form of food, potable eater, life essentials, etc...?

    Yup..........clearly, these folks were highly motivated by the water moving up ( maybe) by 1 millimeter to 2 millimeters per year.

    Clearly, the threat of tsunami had nothing to do with thier decision!!!:up:
