From Tom Nelson:
President Mohamed Waheed Hassan Manik today said though Maldives faces the dangers of climate change, the country would not be submerged in the Indian Ocean.
Speaking to Sri Lankan businessmen this morning during his current visit to Sri Lanka, President stressed that Maldives can be sustained through efforts to avert the dangers of climate change.
“First of all, I want give you a bit of good news. The good news is that the Maldives is not about to disappear,” President Waheed said countering the claims by his predecessor that the Maldives would be be completely submerged in the near future.
He added that foreign investors were concerned with the talks of a submerged Maldives.
Maybe this announcement has something to do with it. Note the Maldives shiny new half a billion dollar golf course:
Follow the money, find the lies. It was never about sea level, or climate refugees, or disappearing islands…it is all about wealth transfer. Whine loud enough to the U.N. that those other big meanie countries are making the sea rise, and they’ll toss money your way. Say it too much, and the investors stay away.
Liars, liars, liars all.
