Coral reefs are living things. They grow.
Coral atolls always stay right at sea level. As sea level rises, the reefs grow – like these ancient reefs in the West Texas desert which are many thousands of feet thick did. As long as the people of the Maldives don’t damage the reefs they live on, the islands will grow upwards as sea level rises.
Sea level has risen 400 feet in the last 20,000 years. It has nothing to do with capitalism or sport utility vehicles.
Ten thousand of these anti-science morons known as “progressives” are currently gathered in Paris.
