New Republic mag Claim: Mag: 'Climate Kings' -- 'How a new generation of authoritarian leaders are using climate change to seize power' - 'Major shifts in the global climate could give rise to a new generation of authoritarian rulers, not just in poorer countries or those with weak democratic institutions, but in wealthy industrialized nations, too.'
Tony Heller of Real Climate Science: 'The article claims that climate change is leading the fascism when in fact it's the projection of climate change that's leading the fascism. And who's making the projection that the Maldives are going to drown? It's the leftists who are doing it. The way it works has the left making a projection of climate change, then the fascist uses it as an excuse to seize power. Even the left has blamed the problem which they caused an imaginary climate change 30 years ago they projected that the Maldives would be completely gone within 30 years -- that's now. Canberra Times September 26, 1988: "Threat to islands Maldives sea levels threatening to completely cover this Indian Ocean nation of 1196 small islands within the next 30 years according to authorities."
"Accelerating sea level rise due to global warming is supposed to eat away at the shorelines across the globe. However, a recent paper published in the journal Nature here authored by a team scientists led by Arjen Luijendijk found that some 75% of the world’s sandy shorelines are stable or growing!
An analysis of satellite-derived shoreline data indicates that 24% of the world’s sandy beaches are eroding at rates exceeding 0.5 m/yr, but 28% are accreting and 48% are stable.
Also, erosion rates exceed 5 m/yr along 4% of the sandy shoreline and are greater than 10 m/yr for 2% of the global sandy shoreline."
