Global Warming To Drown 4,000 Islands In Indonesia

JAKARTA (Commodity Online) : The largest archipelago of the world, Indonesia might lose around 4000 islands from its total of 17,500 islands due to global warming.

According to country’s Development Management and Supervision division, this much islands may disappear when the sea surface rises due to global warming, a government official said.

Global climate change could cause the sea level to rise high enough submerge 4,000 islands in Indonesia,” it said in a report.

“This will be unavoidable if global warming continues causing the sea level to keep rising as happened thousands of years ago when ice bergs melted,” it said.

    The amazing thing – Indonesia has 4000 islands with less then 7 inches of elevation!
    Incredible.

  2. Mike Davis says:

    That is an indicator that currently 10,000 of the islands should not be inhabited and half the remainder are in an high risk position for natural disasters and should be depopulated also.
    OTHO as H2O converts to the solid state at the poles in the coming years Indonesia will have more land as the sea levels continue to fall.

  3. mkelly says:

    If these islands were inhabited for the last 12000 years then there should be villages some 300 ft lower in elevation so fisherman could be nearer the water. And there should be evidence that some of the villages were drowned when the water rose so fast as the glaciers melted. Seek and ye shall find.

    • Mike Davis says:

      12,000 years ago humans were hunter gatherers that moved with the changing weather patterns and their villages were temporary sites. The construction standards of the period were at bit lower than today’s standards for slums or shacks in the most depressed areas of the globe.

    Key word – ‘might’

  5. This scare is bound to make Obama act – he spent most of his childhood there .
    “In 1967, the family moved to Jakarta, where Obama’s half-sister Maya Soetoro-Ng was born. Obama attended schools in Jakarta, where classes were taught in the Indonesian language. Four years later when Barack (commonly known throughout his early years as “Barry”) was ten, he returned to Hawaii to live with his maternal grandparents”

  6. Dan Heilman says:

    More then likely the islands are sinking under there own weight, and for every island lost the larger land masses are probably creating islands as they sink, LOL, move or lose, you can’t stop gravity from keeping the earth round, you got weight, you sink, LOL, just a fact, face the facts.
