No one leaving this “sinking” island. So what gives?

“We live in constant fear of the adverse impacts of climate change. For a coral atoll nation, sea level rise and more severe weather events loom as a growing threat to our entire population. The threat is real and serious, and is of no difference to a slow and insidious form of terrorism against us.
– Saufatu Sopoanga, fmr Prime Minister of Tuvalu, at the 58th Session of the United Nations General Assembly New York, 24th September 2003

No matter if the science of global warming is all phony…
climate change provides the greatest opportunity to
bring about justice and equality in the world
.”
– Christine Stewart,
former Canadian Minister of the Environment

Via Herald Sun | Andrew Bolt :

Al Gore claimed climate refugees were fleeing drown Pacific islands. Bill Shorten visited Kiribati this week to see for himself the great danger.

Yet the islanders don’t seem to feel in any imminent danger at all:

The New Zealand immigration department sets aside 75 places a year in a lottery for migrants from Kiribati, and at the moment it can’t fill them. President Anote Tong suggests that is because things aren’t desperate enough yet.

No, they aren’t. Not when 80 per cent of those “sinking” Pacific and Indian Ocean islands are in fact growing or stable
