Associated Press Lie: Global Warming Sunk Island

AP grabs at any chance to spread the global warming myth. Christian Science Monitor, BBC and other liberal media follow.

AP- "What these two countries could not achieve from years of talking, has been resolved by global warming," said Hazra.

Scientists at the School of Oceanographic Studies at the university have noted an alarming increase in the rate at which sea levels have risen over the past decade in the Bay of Bengal...

"We will have ever larger numbers of people displaced from the Sunderbans as more island areas come under water," he said.

Bangladesh, a low-lying delta nation of 150 million people, is one of the countries worst-affected by global warming. Officials estimate 18 percent of Bangladesh’s coastal area will be underwater and 20 million people will be displaced if sea levels rise 1 meter (3.3 feet) by 2050 as projected by some climate models...

What else would cause rising sea level but global warming?

It is well known that the surge of ocean water is a seasonal phenomenon due to the monsoon season, and it submerges most of the delta every year.

wikipedia- The physical development processes along the coast [of the Bengal Delta] are influenced by a multitude of factors, comprising wave motions, micro and macro-tidal cycles and long shore currents typical to the coastal tract. The shore currents vary greatly along with the monsoon. These are also affected by cyclonic action. Erosion and accretion through these forces maintains varying levels, as yet not properly measured, of physiographic change whilst the mangrove vegetation itself provides a remarkable stability to the entire system. During each monsoon season almost all the Bengal Delta is submerged, much of it for half a year

A quick look at Wikipedia's article on the disputed "sunk" island:

wikipedia- South Talpatti Island as it was known in Bangladesh or New Moore Island or Purbasha as it was known in India was a small uninhabited offshore island that emerged in the Bay of Bengal in the aftermath of the Bhola cyclone in 1970 and disappeared at some point in the first decades of the 2000’s. Scientists from the School of Oceanographic Studies in Kolkata, after analyzing recent satellite images, announced to the BBC that the island had been completely submerged by rising water levels in the Bay of Bengal.

There had never been any permanent settlement or stations located on the island. Its sovereignty was disputed between Bangladesh and India for years until the island’s disappearance.

The island was situated only two kilometers from the mouth of the Hariabhanga River. The emergence of the island was first discovered by an American satellite in 1974 that showed the island to have an area of 2,500 sq meters (27,000 sq ft). Later, various remote sensing surveys showed that the island had expanded gradually to an area of about 10,000 sq meters (110,000 sq ft) at low tide, including a number of ordinarily submerged shoals. The highest elevation of the island had never exceeded two meters above sea level.

AP is still stuck on the false UN report that Himalayan glaciers are melting into that delta, submerging land. It's just a seasonal event! (via sweetness & light)
