The people of the Maldives have, in the past, survived a higher sea level of about 50–60 cm. The present trend lack signs of a sea level rise. On the contrary, there is firm morphological evidence of a significant sea level fall in the last 30 years. This sea level fall is likely to be the effect of increased evaporation and an intensification of the NE-monsoon over the central Indian Ocean. <p> <b><font color=#ff8080 size=4>Tuvalu - Pacific Islands Crying Wolf</font></b> <p> The Government of Tuvalu, egged on by <b><i>Greenpeace</i></b>, is the most strident of small Pacific island countries, claiming they are being swamped by rising seas caused by global warming.*** Predictably, they want 'compensation' from the USA and Australia.* <p> But tide data from Funafuti, the capital of Tuvalu, data collected with Australian expertise and equipment, shows their claims to be both alarmist - and false.** (Data from the National Tidal Facility (NTF), Adelaide) <p> <img src="http://mitosyfraudes.8k.com/images/Tuvalu-2.gif"> <p> In March 2002, the NTF stated* <b><font color=#ff0000>"The historical record shows no visual evidence of any acceleration in sea level trends."</font></b>* Instead, they suggested coastline degradation and sinking islets in Funafuti,* were the result of <b><font color=#ff0000>entirely local conditions</font></b>, not sea level rise.* <a href="http://www.spacedaily.com/news/020825041235.1kc48u02.html">(AFP story)</a> It was not an argument.
