Approximately 13,000 islands around the world have increased land mass over two decades, disproving claims of climate alarmists about rising sea levels
By Laura Harris // Apr 12, 2024

A Chinese study has revealed that approximately 13,000 islands worldwide have increased their land mass over the past two decades by 369.67 square kilometers (142.73 square miles), debunking claims that so-called climate change would make sea levels rise and wipe out islands.

In the past few years, climate alarmists have insinuated that manmade climate change would swiftly drive shoreline erosion and island disappearance due to rising sea levels. But this Chinese study, published in the Journal of Coastal Research, has debunked these claims. (Related: Climate alarmists hype sea level rise by 2050, claim it could be 50 times greater than actual data.)

The study, which highlights the impacts of climate change and human activities, examines surface and satellite records of existing studies to analyze shoreline changes in the 13,000 islands of Southeast Asian archipelagos, the Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean.

Based on the findings, an area equivalent to the size of the Isle of Wight has been added to these islands, totaling a remarkable 369.67 square kilometers. The researchers witnessed a net increase of 157.21 square kilometers (60.7 square miles) of land from when it was lost in the 1990s until 2020.

Another study on the Pacific island nation of Tuvalu supported these claims. The Tuvalu study claims that 101 out of the 709 coastlines had increased their land mass by 2.9 percent while the rest had not experienced any loss of land. Additionally, the study found that 47 reef islands either expanded in size or maintained their stability over the past five decades. All this, despite facing sea-level rise rates surpassing the global average.

Similarly, the island nation of the Maldives in the Indian Ocean, often portrayed as a symbol of the perils of rising sea levels, also experienced significant land mass growth.

This phenomenon extends to the Indonesian Archipelago, coastal regions along the Indochinese Peninsula, and islands within the Red and Mediterranean Seas. Notably, the coastal waters of the Indochinese Peninsula had the most substantial gain, with an increase 106.28 square kilometers (41.03 square miles) over three decades.

In short, the study found that the natural variability in erosion and accretion processes along coastlines contributes to the land mass increase. Natural processes such as tides, winds and sediment transport as well as human activities like fish farming and land reclamation largely contribute to the growth of the islands.

Furthermore, scientists argue that while sea-level rise does contribute to shoreline erosion, it is not the leading factor driving changes in land mass.

Other studies also debunk false narrative of climate alarmists about rising sea levels

A 2014 discussion paper published in Ocean Challenges also debunked the false narrative of climate alarmists about rising sea levels.

The study, which evaluated multi-mission satellite sea level records, found that the rate of sea level rise has slowed by 31 percent since 2002 and by a staggering 44 percent since 2004. At that time, the rate stood at less than seven inches per century.

For years, rising sea levels have been a key indicator of climate change, from global warming to the consequent melting of polar ice caps and glaciers.

The onset of the Industrial Revolution marked an increase in greenhouse gas emissions, which in turn, led to a rise in global temperatures and ocean volumes. The expansion of seawater due to warming and the melting of ice has been perpetuated in public consciousness through images of polar bears struggling on diminishing icebergs.

But the narrative fails to acknowledge factors like large year-to-year variations, driven by phenomena like the El Niño-Southern Oscillation. These short-term variations cover the long-term relationship between global warming and sea level rise.

This disproved the notion of a direct link between greenhouse gases and sea level rise.
