Maldives Suddenly Realizes That ‘Climate Change’ Belief Doesn’t Pay

The heck you say!

(Climate Central)  When Mohamed Nasheed, the young, first democratically elected president of the Maldives, said in 2008 that he was seeking to buy a new homeland to save his people from being inundated by rising sea levels, it made the country of 1,200 coral islands the moral leader in the UN climate talks and helped persuade rich countries to act.

This week the Maldives, under new president Abdulla Yameen, apparently changed environmental tack, saying that mass tourism and mega-developments rather than solar power and carbon neutrality would enable it to adapt itself to climate change and give its young population hope for the future.

They realized that all that sweet, sweet climate money redistributed from other nations wasn’t appearing in vast sums, and changed tactics. Of course, they had still been relying on mass tourism during their whole give us climate money phase, not too mention building more airports for fossil fueled planes.

“The Maldives needs money to survive. Resorts are very positive for the environment. They offer better protection than community islands because they must protect at least 700m all around them. They become mini marine reserves,” he said.

Fears of immediate sea level rise, which scientists said in the latest IPCC report was accelerating and could mean 75 percent of the Maldives being under water by 2100, were unfounded, Adam said. “It is not going to happen next year. We have immediate needs. Development must go on, jobs are needed, we have the same aspirations as people in the US or Europe.”

And there it is: they realize that they don’t want to live in the 3rd World anymore, and want all the same things as those in the 1st World have. The same life the 1st World warmists live that they’re trying to deny to other nations.

And sea rise in the Maldives is negligible. It’s right around 2.2mm per year, and not accelerating. That’s .0866 inches per year. And, much of the disappearing islands have to do with erosion.
