What's (Not) Happening in the Maldives.

No spot in the Maldives is more than six feet above sea level. If ocean levels are rising, you'll see it here first. So what's happening? Apparently not much. From the article:

So it boils down to this: Who would you rather believe? People doing studies on-site and gathering photographic evidence that shows clear geologic actions of lowered sea levels on the islands, or somebody sitting in an office analyzing and doing regressions on tide gauge data when they’ve never even done and checking on the quality control of the gauges themselves?

The rest is here.
