From Watts Up With That?
Essay by Eric Worrall
In UN fantasy land, rising sea levels will cause a mass exodus from London, New York and Shanghai, and “ever fiercer competition” for resources.
‘Mass exodus on a biblical scale’: UN warns New York, London, Shanghai to be impacted by rising sea levels
The UN says an estimated 900 million people, or more than one in ten of the world’s population, will be affected by rising sea levels around the world.
- The UN’s Secretary General has warned the Security Council of rising sea levels.
- He said approximately 900 million people living near water are at high risk.
- The Australia Institute says Australia is already being affected.
The UN has warned of an incoming mass exodus from rising sea levels caused by climate change.
Mega-cities on every continent will face serious impacts, including Lagos, Bangkok, Mumbai, Shanghai, London, Buenos Aires and New York, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres told the Security Council.
Mr Guterres said rising waters will cause a new type of conflict where people, companies or countries will be fighting for land.
“We would witness a mass exodus of entire populations on a biblical scale, and we would see ever-fiercer competition for fresh water, land and other resources,” he said.

My question – how can anyone take these sea level rise claims seriously?
People have been battling the sea and winning for thousands of years.
Take the city of Venice, Italy. Venice began as fishermen living on impoverished, difficult to reach islands, separated by water from the barbarian chaos of the fall of the Western Roman Empire. Refugees from the mainland began arriving en-masse in the year 584AD, after the Lombard barbarian hordes invaded Italy.
Ever since the mass settlement of Venice, Venetians have been battling the sea and winning, and turned their humble islands of fishing shacks into one of the architectural marvels of the world.
The US city of Seattle dealt with flood risk by raising their street level an entire floor level, creating the Seattle Underground.
Chicago jacked up entire buildings when they raised their streets in the mid 1800s – one of the jacked up building structures weighed an estimated 35,000 tons.
Netherlands has been building sea walls and pumps for centuries – a sizeable part of the Netherlands farmland would be tidal flats or even permanently underwater, without a vast and continuous effort to hold back the sea.
Much of Singapore is reclaimed land – land which was once sea, which has been filled with concrete, sand and steel, and converted into dry land.
Sea level rise is no threat to anyone, except for people who give up, because they believe the UN’s absurd climate alarmism and sea level rise claims.
