Maybe not the first person you would go to. He has a degree in public administration.

"Climate change is accelerating ", LOL. Is he the only man on earth that hasn't seen The Pause, regardless of what one blames the cause of the pause on?

"ow-lying islands of the Pacific threatened by rising seas ", LOL. He must have missed several recent published research studies that show that most islands are growing or stable.**

"Let us join forces to push back against skeptics". Of course, by all means, silence the detractors, shout down the ethical scientists, cut off their funding, and completely ignore that every single prediction of global warming and it's catastrophic effects has been wrong and only the skeptics have been right.

** For example:
Climate scientists have expressed surprise at findings that many low-lying Pacific islands are growing, not sinking.

Islands in Tuvalu, Kiribati and the Federated States of Micronesia are among those which have grown, largely due to coral debris, land reclamation and sediment.

The findings, published in the journal Global and Planetary Change, were gathered by comparing changes to 27 Pacific islands over the last 20 to 60 years using historical aerial photos and satellite images.

Auckland University's Associate Professor Paul Kench, a member of the team of scientists, says the results challenge the view that Pacific islands are sinking due to rising sea levels associated with climate change.

"Eighty per cent of the islands we've looked at have either remained about the same or, in fact, gotten larger," he says.

"Some of those islands have gotten dramatically larger, by 20% or 30%.

Seriously? Ban-Ki-Moon? This is some sort of Expert on Global Warming?

Tell me, is there ever a point when you guys just give it up? You were wrong. Just get over it, will you, and stop wasting everyone else's time and more importantly, money.

The seas aren't overflowing, as Dave pointed out, Islands are getting larger. You can take all of the Computer Models you want, but have you ever considered the term GIGO? That is what is going on. You libs are the most easily conned group of people on planet Earth.

As PT Barnum said once, there is a sucker born every minute, and in the world of liberalism, its at a rate of 99.9%..
