CLIMATE CHANGE DROWNING ISLANDS

Posted on: June 18, 2021

THIS POST IS A BRIEF REPORT OF A CLIMATE CATASTROPHE OF JUNE 2021 WHERE WE FIND THAT THE SOLOMON ISLANDS ARE BEING DROWNED OUT BY THE RISING SEAS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND THAT ONE OF THESE ISLANDS NAMED KALE HAS GONE UNDER AND DISAPPEARED.

THE SOLOMON ISLANDS HAVE A TOTAL LAND AREA OF ABOUT 3.75 MILLION HECTARES MOST OF WHICH IS ON THE SIX MAJOR ISLANDS CHOISUEL, GUADACANAL, MALAITA, MAKIRA, NEW GEORGIA, AND SANTA ISABEL. IN ADDITION TO THESE SIX MAJOR ISLANDS OF HIGH LAND AND FOREST, THERE ARE ABOUT A THOUSAND ATOLLS AND REEFS. THESE ARE EVANESCENT FLOATING ISLANDS THAT COME AND GO IN A NATURAL DYNAMIC BETWEEN NEW SAND AND CORAL RUBBLE GAINED FROM THE REEF AND SAND AND CORAL RUBBLE BEING LOST TO THE SEA BY EROSION. THAT ONE OF THESE HAS JUST GONE DOES NOT IMPLY SOME KIND OF ISLAND SINKING ROLE FOR CLIMATE CHANGE BY WAY OF RISING SEAS.

30,000 years ago the sea level was 300 feet lower than today, more or less, because Siberia, Europe and North America were buried under mile high continental ice sheets.

Presumably coral atolls existed then as today.

Also, presumably, coral atolls existed before millions of cubic miles of seawater was transported to the poles and higher elevations by Global Warming, causing the sea level to drop 300 feet.

As Global Cooling began “starving” the continental ice sheets of winter precipitation and they began to melt away, the sea level began to rise and the coral atoll growth kept up with the rise, always staying where they are today, just below the surface.

Thank you for this, Ruben.
