Fiji's existence threatened by 'frightening new era' of deadly climate change

The Independent, Harry Cockburn, 3 days ago

The South Pacific islands that make up Fiji are in the grip of a “frightening new era” of extreme weather, the country’s prime minister has said, after flooding from a cyclone has killed at least four people.

Voreqe Bainimarama said the island nation now faces a “fight for survival” as climate change brings “almost constant” deadly tropical cyclones.

The islands avoided a direct hit by Cyclone Josie on Sunday, but the storm brought heavy rains, high winds and flooding, which caused extensive damage to homes, businesses and vehicles on the main island of Viti Levu.

No, China has nothing to do with it. Climate change, formerly known as global warming, global cooling, or various other names, is attributable to grant getters or book and movie writers having an interest in perpetuating the myth. According to them if it wasn't for the US China would be the worst offender on the planet.

Harry Cockburn is a journalist wannabee independent writing unsupported articles mostly for other blogs. This one is no exception. Lots of allegations, no citations or evidence.

A 2 minute Google found nothing to support his claims, and no other article from the Fiji official.

I don't know about Republicans, but I for one have never denied that we are experiencing climate change, just like the Earth has experienced since it had a climate.

It may be frightening, but something that's been occurring for a few billion years isn't new.

What do you propose we do that will stop the Earth's climate from changing the way it has done since it had a climate? And what do propose is the "normal" climate the one we have now or the one we had 100,000 years ago when there was a mile thick sheet of ice where I am currently sitting?
