The Maldives aren’t sinking! Hurrah for that.
“By the end of this century, sea level may have risen by between 30cm and 50cm according to the various IPCC scenarios. Our records suggest a maximum of 20cm. Neither of those levels would pose any real problem — simply a return to the situation in the 17th and the 19th to early 20th centuries, respectively.”
Tis nice to get a comonsense view once in a while.
