  1. Always no more money. How the fawk get money to give Ukraine aid, weapons or any other shithole country?
    We live with hardships while this government plays save the world with our tax dollars.

  2. Natural consequences of condemning, and belittling native peoples and their continual apartheid. Greed and betrayal, and religions void of Aloha ‘Āina kapu mandate.

  3. Gore said the same thing in 2000 that by 2030 it would raise by 6". Nope! We visited Emphasis in Turkey. 1,000 years a go it use to be a port city. The port is now 2 miles away from what use to be the port of Emphasis. The land actually filled in.

  4. Have you ever considered submarine homes ? Instead of bomb shelters, build in submarine homes. Maybe just making a live in land anchored yacht for that just in case scenario. Then again, who has that type of money to play with. We live Hawaii where homelessness is everywhere and the locals struggle to live. Maybe the rising sea level going take care of that feral chicken problem. Oh. oh. gotta worry about the feral ducks now. Brah, no can win.

  5. TELL THAT TO THE WICKED ONES DOING THE WEATHER MANIPULATION WORLDWIDE AND CALLING IT CLIMATE, SO THEY CAN STEAL MORE OF THE PUBLIC'S MONEY FOR THEIR NEFERIOUS CAUSE.

  6. "Recent Study." Yeah, ok. It's already been at least 15 years since Al Gore said Manhattan would be under water. Anyone who goes to the beach, like Magic Island knows the water level is exactly the same. The highways getting destroyed is just natural erosion. It's always been like that. It's called EROSION. This is all about money.

  7. Best program I have seen to lower the price of beach front property. Must be working because Obama ,Pelosi and the rest of them have been buying Beach front properties lately.

  8. YOU PEOPLE IN HAWAII, I'VE WITNESSED IT, TRUCK LOAD, AFTER TRUCK LOAD, BEING BULLDOZED — ALWAYS MOVING THE BEACH SAND TO CREATE BIGGER BEACH AREAS TO HOLIDAY ON…. IGNORING AND DESTROYING THE LITTLE CREATURES AND CRUSTATIONS THAT RELY ON THOSE BEAUTIFUL BEACHES, WHICH ARE THEIR HOMES…. THAT MAN JUST MOVES —– MONTHS BACK I MENTIONED, THAT EACH TIME YOU TAKE A TRUCK LOAD OF BEACH SAND MOVING IT AROUND, YOU ARE CAUSING DESTABILIZATION OF THE BEACH SURFACE, EVERY TRUCK LOAD DESTABILIZED, FOR YEARS THE BEACHES WERE COMPACT AND COMPACTED BY THE OCEAN AS IT'S NATURALLY MEANT TO HAPPEN, WITH IT'S EBB & FLOW… BUT THEN "STUPID PEOPLE COME WITH CLEVER IDEAS" – LET'S MOVES THE BEACH SAND AND MAKE AREAS BIGGER…. """ HA HA & VERY UNSTABLE… DO YOU LEARN, NO – HAVE YOU LEARNT – NO…. ARE YOU EVER GOING TO LISTEN AND STOP…. "NO WAY" HUMANS ARE DESTROYING AND CAUSING PROBLEMS WITH OCEANS BEACHES AND EVERYONE'S BUILDING ON THE VERY EDGE…. DESTABILIZATION OF SOIL COMPACTED IN PLACE BY NATURE OVER MANY YEARS, DESTROYED IN MOMENTS BY HUMANITY —— YOU DO SO EVERYTIME YOU BLAST AREAS OPEN FOR ROADS, BRIDGE'S… IS CAUSES "SOIL EROSIONS"… SCAREY TO THINK OF BUT HUMANITY IS TOO BLAME… TALKING ABOUT DESTABILIZATION THAT TOP POINT OF "DIAMOND HEAD" WHERE A LOOKOUT POINT HAS BEEN EXCAVATED OUT AND A ROAD FORMED – NO STABILIZATION THERE TO STOP IT CRASHING DOWN… ALL IT NEEDS IS CONTINOUS RAIN… YOU'VE GOT YOURSELF A LANDSLIDE OF ASTRONOMICAL PROPORTIONS. A ONCE BEAUTIFULLY MAINTAINED ENVIRONMENT IS DEGRADING UNDER YOUR FEET….. ""BUT HEY, EVERYONE WANTS TO LIVE ON THE BEACH"" WHAT YOU GOING TO DO IF A CYCLONE HITS YOU, IT'S WORSE THAN A TSUNAMI, IT TRAVELS FASTER WITH MORE POWER, COMES VIA LAND STORMWATER AND TORRENTIAL RAIN…. LIKE MADAGASCAR, MOZAMBIQUE'S COASTS, THAT TRAVELLED HUNDREDS OF KILOMETERS ON LAND TAKING EVERYTHING WITH IT…. RIVERS THAT HADN'T FLOWED FOR YEARS SUDDENLY FLOWED WERE, WREAKED HAVOC, AS HOMES AND BUILDING'S WERE BUILT WHERE NATURALLY FORMED RIVER'S ONCE FLOWED… BLOCKED OFF BY MAN TO CREATE "DAMS" – BLOCKING THE NATURAL FLOW OF WATER…. WHERE NATURE DECIDES – NO MORE, I'M TAKING BACK WHAT ONCE BELONGED TO ME….. :: NOTHING WILL STOP IT :: NATURE IS ANGRY… MAN DESTROYS ….
