Sea level supposedly rising but Tuvalu getting bigger!

More data points towards Global Warming being the fact-denying religion rather than the fact!

Not so long ago Tyvalu and other Pacific islands have been prominently featuring on the 3 major international Global Warming conferences: Kopenhagen, Kyoto and Paris. Their leaders have been dramatically calling upon the industrialized Western countries to reduce carbon emission to save their islands from disappearing under the ocean

There is a small problem - the islands have been growing in size!

'Sinking' Pacific nation is getting bigger: study


The Pacific nation of Tuvalu—long seen as a prime candidate to disappear as climate change forces up sea levels—is actually growing in size, new research shows.

A University of Auckland study examined changes in the geography of Tuvalu's nine atolls and 101 reef islands between 1971 and 2014, using aerial photographs and satellite imagery.

It found eight of the atolls and almost three-quarters of the islands grew during the study period, lifting Tuvalu's total land area by 2.9 percent, even though sea levels in the country rose at twice the global average.

Co-author Paul Kench said the research, published Friday in the journal Nature Communications, challenged the assumption that low-lying island nations would be swamped as the sea rose.
